‘James Bond’ yacht to dock at Chag

The Voyager, which was featured in the latest James bond film, Skyfall, docks in Trinidad and Tobago on February 4. 

This country will be the first stop for the Johnnie Walker and Sons Voyager, a massive 183 ft yacht on a world tour following the original trade routes of Johnnie Walker’s first merchant ships. The luxury sailing yacht, which will be docked at Pier 1, Chaguaramas, is part of one of the biggest Johnnie Walker campaigns in collaboration with Bryden’s and Diageo. 

Bryden’s Reserve Relationship Manager, Kathryn Innis, said yesterday a number of exciting events are carded to take place on the Voyager on February 6 and 7. These events are prestigious and strictly by invitation.  

“The concept is to endorse luxury while also bringing further highlight to luxury brands within the Johnnie Walker portfolio — Those brands include Johnnie Walker blue label, Johnnie Walker platinum, Johnnie Walker gold label reserve,” she said.

Innis said the campaign will also see the launch of John Walker and Sons Odyssey, a new Johnnie Walker blend. After completing the Asian leg of its journey the yacht continued its voyage through historic ports of Europe from Cannes to Edinburgh then continued its third leg of the expedition, to dock in Trinidad, Antigua, Venezuela, Aruba, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and Miami, marking the end of the journey in the United States. 

At each destination, Johnnie Walker and Sons Voyager will play host to a series of high-profile Johnnie Walker Blue Label events and experiences that will celebrate each port’s own story of progress and innovation and recognise national game changers who embody the pioneering spirit and vision of the Walker family.
