Johnnie and Jasper

Ever since cartoonist Tom Browne first drew the iconic Johnnie Walker “Striding Man” image on the back of a menu card in 1908, that image has become one of the most recognisable brands in the world.

In the years that followed, the makers of Johnnie Walker have established a proud tradition of commissioning some of the most innovative illustrators of the day to create artwork to adorn their prestigious blended Scotch whiskies.

The latest in this collaborative commission is a limited edition artwork on the flagship Johnnie Walker Black Label, designed by renowned British illustrator Jasper Goodall.

Only 1,000 bottles of this limited-edition bottle have been produced, all individually numbered and hand-signed by Goodall himself. In Malaysia, only 336 bottles of the Jasper Goodall Limited Edition Johnnie Walker Black Label magnum are available.

They are priced at RM788 each. These can only be ordered directly from Moët Hennessy Diageo Malaysia Sdn Bhd. To order a bottle, e-mail Daphene.Dunn@mhdm.com.my with “Jasper Goodall Limited Edition” in the subject field.

Brotzeit Oktoberfest

At noon on Sept 17, the mayor of Munich marked the start of the annual Oktoberfest celebrations with the ritual of tapping the first Oktoberfest barrel and the proclamation of “O’zapft is!” (meaning “It is tapped!”).

At 7.30pm on the same day, Brotzeit German Bier Bar and Restaurant in Mid Valley Megamall, KL, observed this tradition with the tapping of the outlet’s first barrel of Paulaner Oktoberfestbier.

Paulaner Oktoberfestbier will be available on draft until the end of October. You can also purchase an original seasonal Oktoberfest-to-go set that includes a one-litre can of Paulaner Oktoberfestbier and a one-litre beer stein, while stocks last.

Furthermore, Brotzeit’s official Oktoberfest celebrations will be held on Oct 12 and 13 to commemorate the legendary wedding that started the Oktoberfest tradition, as well as Brotzeit’s first anniversary.

Seating for the event is limited to 200 pax per evening. For reservations and enquiries, call 03-2287 5516/7.
