The historic link between Kilmarnock and Johnnie Walker whisky has come to an end after 192 years.
On Friday 23 March 2012, the last Red Label whisky was bottled at the Hill Street premises.
Of course it was no longer a family or even a local company. The world-famous brand had been taken over by the global drinks company Diageo which has no emotional ties to the town that gave the world the "walking man". Perhaps their next "restructuring" will take Guinness production away from Dublin??
