To tee off, Johnnie Walker has teamed up with trendsetting golf apparel co-founders and brothers, Will and Bert Brunner of Devereux Golf, to create the first of three capsule collections that push the boundaries of what Scotch and golf can be. The ‘Johnnie Walker Golf Collection’ features hand stitched snapback hats, t-shirts with bold graphics, and a golf towel in striking colors. Each item brings modern yet functional fashion to the green by incorporating stylish outfitting options that capture the essence of modern golfing while honoring its rich heritage. This collaboration celebrates the enduring bond between old and young, paying homage to the traditions of the past while embracing the energy of the future.

“When Johnnie Walker reached out to collaborate, we were instantly in. Devereux Golf is all about the freedom of the game and bringing people together, what better way to do that than with the perfect accouterment to the game – Johnnie Walker,” said Devereux co-founder Bert Brunner. “When we started the company in 2013, it was in the hopes of making golf a more exciting, inclusive and inviting sport. Creatively speaking, this collaboration is the perfect partnership since Johnnie Walker and Devereux are two brands that have a deep, abiding love for the sport and a commitment to push culture forward,” added Devereux co-founder Will Brunner.

In addition to Johnnie Walker and Devereux capsule collections that will drop over the next 18 months, ‘The Johnnie Walker Clubhouse’ will engage next-gen Scotch drinkers and golfers with elevated hospitality experiences at major golf tournaments across the country. The brand is also partnering with Hypegolf as the presenting sponsor of the Hypegolf Invitational LA 2024 and several other culture forward events throughout the season.

“Golf has never been more popular, and brands like Devereux Golf are welcoming all different types of people to experience the sport in fun, new ways, just like we aim to do with Scotch,” said Josh Dean, Vice President of Johnnie Walker and Buchanan’s at Diageo North America. “We are excited to team up with Devereux to reimagine the future of the game through innovative cocktails, fresh lifestyle apparel and fan experiences on and off the course.”

Whether experiencing ‘The Johnnie Walker Clubhouse’ at a tournament, or playing a round with friends, you can responsibly enjoy these reimagined classic cocktails that toast the enduring connection between Scotch and Golf.

  • The KEEP WALKING 18 is an indulgent fusion of flavors that elegantly combines the rich, peaty notes of Johnnie Walker Black Label with the zingy freshness of lime cordial. The whisky’s inherent smokiness perfectly complements the spicy kick of ginger beer, while the Angostura bitters add a complex layer of aromatic herbs and spices.
  • The Johnnie Palmer offers a unique twist on the traditional Arnold Palmer by blending the smooth, smoky undertones of Johnnie Walker Black Label with the classic, crisp flavors of lemonade and ice cream. The result is light tasting and sweet — the perfect cocktail to enjoy on a sunny afternoon.
  • Blue in One brings a touch of luxury to the green. Served neat on a golf ball rock to enjoy the rich character of Johnnie Walker Blue Label.

Johnnie Walker and Devereux previewed the first capsule collection at the Charles Schwab Challenge Memorial Day Weekend at the Colonial Golf Course’s 14th Green, where invited guests 21+ could see the merchandise enjoy the tournament while sipping on ‘The Johnnie Walker Clubhouse’ cocktails.
