Blade Runner Blended Whisky Released
Sep 14, 2017 by: WENN
Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve has created a new blended whisky to accompany the much-anticipated movie's release.
The limited-edition scotch is a collaboration between the filmmaker and blenders at Johnnie Walker.
Johnnie Walker Black Label appeared in the original Blade Runner movie 35 years ago as a prop of the future, and the new triple will be called Johnnie Walker Black Label The Director's Cut.
"Like many fans, I remember the Johnnie Walker bottle from the first film, so it was a unique privilege to collaborate with Johnnie Walker on designing a totally original, custom bottle for the new movie," the director says.
"It was also a once-in-a-lifetime experience to help create the limited-edition Director's Cut blend, which perfectly captures the complex mysterious world of Blade Runner 2049."
There are only 2,000 bottles of the Blade Runner scotch, which are now available to pre-order via Amazon ahead of the new film's release on October 6.
