- Johnnie Walker Collection
For the liquor connoisseur that has everything, Porsche Design has come out with the ultimate private bar designed specifically for Johnnie Walker’s prestigious Blue Label blended Scotch whisky.
Priced from £100,000 (approximately $155,360), only 50 of these beauties are destined for worldwide sale, all of them made-to-order.
The Johnnie Walker Collection by Porsche Design Studio features three items:
- The Chiller, a case made of brushed titanium and blue leather, that holds one square bottle of Walker’s Scotch (its top turns into an ice bucket);
- The Cube, which features a top that also turns into an ice bucket and a larger that encompasses an individually-numbered bottle of Blue Label, four crystal tumblers, and a set of stainless-steel tongs; and
- The Private Bar, a six-and-a-half-foot-tall tower of titanium, glass and leather that opens and pivots 180 degrees automatically to reveal three bottles of Blue Label, four illuminated crystal tumblers, chilled water and an ice bucket.
Of course, each unit is crafted from the finest materials and combines classic and contemporary design into a piece that blends form and function–something you’d expect considering it costs nearly as much as two new Porsche 911 S.
Some of its features include motion sensors to activate its automated opening sequence, a custom Porsche Design Johnnie Walker Blue Label bottle holder, four crystal glasses, and a hidden chilled compartment comprising a bespoke crystal ice bucket, stainless steel tongs, four further crystal glasses, and a crystal jug of iced water.
Standing at over six and a half feet, and crafted from brushed stainless steel, natural shagreen leather and Australian lace wood, the bar would be the perfect addition to any modern home though getting your hands on one is no easy task.
The Johnnie Walker Collection private bar will be sold mostly through exclusive private auctions and invitation-only events, however, a few will be sold through select luxury retail outlets from this month onwards.
