"Johnnie Walker’s first experiential retail flagship store transports visitors into its universe"
The Johnnie Walker Madrid flagship store is an exciting destination for Scotch lovers and whisky novices alike. It plays host to a wide variety of immersive experiences, including whisky masterclasses and tastings designed to help people explore the world of Johnnie Walker and the broader category of whisky.
The store is all about the customer journey and engages visitors in an increasingly progressive and interactive way as they move through the space.
At the entrance is a ‘Perfect Serve’ screen that captures each customer’s personal interests and matches them to a whisky cocktail which they can then co-create at the bar – learning not just what to drink but how to drink. This interactive, gamified experience is an approachable way of introducing novices and whisky-curious consumers to the brand.
At the front right of the store a wall showcases the core Johnnie Walker whisky range. The wall is divided by the coloured labels that relate to each particular whisky and its unique flavour profile. In the middle of the wall is a ‘Explore our Whiskies’ screen where customers can take an interactive journey across Scotland distillery sites to discover many of the single malt and single grain whiskies that go into each bottle of Johnnie Walker.
