Johnnie Walker

(1805-1857)

In 1820, John Walker gave up farming and bought a grocery business in Kilmarnock. His brand of whisky, Walker's Kilmarnock Whisky, thrived and became world famous.

The business was developed by Johnnie Walker's grandson, Sir Alexander Walker, whose office still stands in John Finnie Street, Kilmarnock.
