The new 70cl, 75cl and one-litre bottles are wider and taller than previously, Diageo said today (29 October). The brand's “Striding Man” logo also now appears on both the neck of the bottle and the front face.
Gavin Pike, Johnnie Walker's global brand director, suggested the bottle will give Johnnie Walker Red a “competitive advantage” over rivals in travel retail, while suggesting it will enter other sectors in the future.
“We believe that travel retail plays an important role in introducing the new look Johnnie Walker Red Label pack to consumers worldwide, which is why global travel is one of the first regions to receive it,” Pike said.
The new design was rolled out in the global travel retail sector this month.
Johnnie Walker is the channel's biggest spirits brand by volume. Last year it upped its volumes in the sector by 15%, according to latest figures.
