Scotch, golf now have Greg Norman in common

May 26, 2011

Scotch and golf already had the obvious in common, that both are products of Scotland. Now they have Greg Norman in common, too, courtesy of his name going on a supply of Johnnie Walker Blue Label.


The company is releasing 20,000 bottles of Johnnie Walker Blue Label Blended Scotch Whisky Greg Norman Limited Edition, exclusively sold through travel retail.

Though a news release did not mention the price, Johnnie Walker's website shows that a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label sells for $225.

Norman has had an ongoing relationship with Johnnie Walker, but this is the first time his name has appeared on a label. For several years, Norman has had his own wine business, Greg Norman Estates.
