Whisky label welcomed icons from the worlds of film, music and F1 to 'Symphony in blue', Monaco – an experiential spectacular that transported guests including Eva Longoria, McLaren Honda Formula One driver Jenson Button, England Rugby Captain Chris Robshaw and his girlfriend Camilla Kerslake into a universe of flavour, craftsmanship and heritage.
Hosted inside Monaco's Ermanno Palais, Symphony in Blue kicked off a long weekend of glamour, style and sophistication. As anticipation in Monte Carlo grew for one of the greatest jewels in the motor racing crown – the Monaco Grand Prix – Johnnie Walker and the McLaren Formula One Team celebrated the 10th anniversary of their partnership.
Just sixty guests from around the globe were invited to this intimate Symphony in Blue experience, which showcased how a multi sensorial, theatrical experience that plays with imagery, sound and light can influence the perception and taste of a whisky hailing from the four corners of Scotland. Two-time Formula 1 World Champion and Johnnie Walker Global Responsible Drinking Ambassador, Mika Häkkinen, joined Button and Ron Dennis, Chairman and CEO McLaren Group, to celebrate the unique partnership forged over the past decade.
Guest attendee, Eva Longoria said, "It has been a real pleasure to be a part of Johnnie Walker Blue Label's Symphony in Blue, Monaco this evening. To be here on race weekend, when the atmosphere is so electric, is an amazing experience!"
