This marks the debut of a bar-style experience within Sydney’s inner-city shopping precinct, providing Scotch enthusiasts, novice tasters, and gift seekers with a respite from the holiday rush. The Blue Room, a blue-themed oasis, beckons guests to relish the diverse flavors within Johnnie Walker’s acclaimed range, including the signature Johnnie Walker Blue Label.

From November 17 to December 29, shoppers can trade their customary gift-hunting routine for a novel festive tradition at the Ritual Bar, the ornate focal point of the Blue Room. Here, expert whisky connoisseurs will guide patrons through tastings, enriching their understanding of the exquisite offerings.

Post-tasting at the Ritual Bar, visitors have the opportunity to delve into Johnnie Walker’s rich history, peruse its premium selection, including limited-edition and rare varieties like the Johnnie Walker Blue Label Lunar New Year Edition and the prestigious John Walker & Sons King George V. Bottles can be acquired for personal enjoyment or as thoughtful gifts. As an added touch, specially designed glassware to accentuate the whisky’s unique flavors and personalized engraving services will be available.
