In 1805, the story of JOHN WALKER & SONS, the producer of the best-selling Scotch whisky, began. John's son, Alexander, played a pivotal role in urging his father to venture into whisky production. By the 1860s, the company was successfully selling around 100,000 gallons of its own blend annually, leading to the establishment of a London office in 1880.

After Alexander's passing in 1889, his two sons, Alexander and George, took over the business. They expanded globally, and Walker's Kilmarnock Whisky gained renown, ultimately rebranded as Johnnie Walker in 1908. In 1893, following a trend among Scotch businesses, John Walker & Sons invested £20,000 to acquire Cardow (now known as Cardhu) distillery.

The early 20th century marked a prosperous period for John Walker & Sons. Under the leadership of managing director James Stevenson, the flagship brand was not only renamed but also given the tagline 'Born 1820 – Still Going Strong.' In 1923, the company, now the largest blender and distiller of Scotch whisky, went public, merging with Buchanan-Dewar and Distillers Company (DCL) two years before.

In 1986, DCL was acquired by Guinness, and in 1997, it merged with Grand Metropolitan to create Diageo. Today, John Walker & Sons continues to play a crucial role in Diageo's business, with a significant portion of its single malt and grain whisky dedicated to various blends of Johnnie Walker.
