XR 21

The World’s No. 1 whisky brand* - Johnnie Walker, with one of its exclusive blends John Walker & Sons XR 21, symbolising the rich heritage and legacy that John Walker passed on to his successors since 1820. From November 1 to 30, Johnnie Walker is going to join hands with The Chinese Library, a contemporary regional Chinese restaurant in Tai Kwun, to launch four seasonal dishes which match perfectly with Johnnie Walker & Sons XR 21.

The warmth of the whisky pairs particularly well with chestnuts, and thus The Chinese Library created a quartet of dishes deliciously incorporating chestnuts, allowing diners to personally experience the surprises brought by the extraordinary whisky and the tasty delicacies for autumn and winter to the taste buds. Using an extremely rare three-stage blending method, the creation of John Walker & Sons XR 21 whisky requires unparalleled dedication from the most-skilled craftsmen.

Sharing the same brand values as Johnnie Walker, The Chinese Library meticulously creates innovative dishes with expert craftsmanship celebrating the city’s most favoured Chinese food loved and embraced by the people of Hong Kong. The 21-Year-Old whiskey itself has a slight peat, smoky and chestnut aroma, making it a heavenly match with the smoky roasted chestnuts traditionally found in Hong Kong during the colder months. 

Enjoying the whisky with chestnuts will bring the smoky flavour of the whisky to the next level. Johnnie Walker and The Chinese Library collaboratively launch four seasonal, limited-time chestnut specials that form a perfect match with the remarkable whisky. Creatively prepared by The Chinese Library’s Executive Chef Junno Li Zhen Long through diverse cooking methods, each dish has the option to be paired with a glass of John Walker & Sons XR 21 whisky (a la carte: HK$278 for 50ml). Featuring peerless whiskies and seasonal delicacies, the heavenly-matched pairing is available for a limited time only for lunch and dinner.
