Following on from its successful Asian tour which retraced the historic spice trade route last year, John Walker & Sons Voyager, the glamorous 1920s-style yacht, is preparing to set off on its European odyssey this May.

Sailing under the name of one of Scotland’s most famous export blended whiskies, John Walker & Sons Voyager will depart from Genoa and head to Cannes, Monaco, Athens, Barcelona, Amsterdam, London, Hamburg and Copenhagen before finally docking in Edinburgh in August.

The Voyager will host a high-profile event in each port, celebrating national influencers and local ‘game changers’, as well as business men, women and celebrities, while hoping to educate and invigorate a new generation of whisky drinkers.

Alison Forrestal, General Manager of Diageo Reserve Western Europe, said: “John Walker & Sons became one of the first global brands by engaging ship captains to act as brand ambassadors and take its whisky from Scotland to the four corners of the world.  In 2013, we are delighted to continue this journey through Europe and announce an epic homecoming which will pay tribute to the Walker family while celebrating some of Europe’s contemporary influencers who embody the pioneering spirit of our brand.”
