Johnnie Walker House in Beijing | by Asylum + LOVE

Marketed as the world’s largest embassy for luxury Scotch whiskey outside Scotland, the Johnnie Walker House in Beijing is a four-level building that immerses visitors in almost all aspects of the drink. The Beijing House, designed by creative firms Asylum and LOVE, represents Johnnie Walker’s second location in China, following the opening of a Shanghai House in 2011. The larger Beijing center includes a historical re-creation of founder John Walker’s 19th century grocery store in Scotland, as well as a blending room and a “whiskey constellation wall,” providing an index for single-malt Scotch whiskeys. There’s also a members’ club and a downstairs distillery bar, furnished with nearly 10,000 copper pipes that simulates a working distillery. Visitors can purchase an exclusive range of whiskeys, even a personalized blend created with a Johnnie Walker master blender. Located in the Dongcheng district, the Johnnie Walker House Beijing is open Tuesdays through Sundays. See more of the whiskey embassy in the gallery below.
