Porsche Design Studio has partnered with Johnnie Walker Blue Label to offer a limited edition series of exclusive scotch collectors’ items.

The Johnnie Walker Blue Label Collection by Porsche Design Studio features three distinct items. The first is the The Chiller, which is a case made of brushed titanium and blue leather that’s designed to hold a single bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label, and it’s top can be used as an ice bucket. Next up is The Cube, which holds an individually numbered bottle of Blue Label, four bespoke crystal tumblers, and a set of stainless-steel tongs.

But the pièce de résistance of this collection has to be the Private Bar. Crafted from brushed stainless steel, natural shagreen leather and Australian lace wood, the Private Bar is a 6.5 foot tower that uses state of the art motion sensors to activate its automated opening sequence. Once opened, sections of the Private Bar pivot and slide to display a host of features. Just a few of the amenities that come with this stunning bar are a magnum of cask strength Johnnie Walker Blue Label with exterior detailing by Porsche Design Studio; two bottles of Johnnie Walker Blue Label and four crystal glasses. Once the bar is open, press a discretely styled button to open up a hidden chilled compartment. Inside this compartment, you’ll find a bespoke crystal ice bucket, stainless steel tongs, four further crystal glasses and a crystal jug of iced water.

The Johnnie Walker Blue Label Collection by Porsche Design Studio is pretty pricey. The Chiller retails for £240 ($375) and The Cube costs £490 ($770) through a selection of high-end retailers in London. If you want to get your hands on the Private Bar, you’ll have to special order it for about $150,000 (and only 50 are being made).
