35 years after appearing in the original, Johnnie Walker Black Label announces its return in Blade Runner 2049.

To celebration, the whiskey brand is releasing this limited edition Black Label The Director’s Cut, created by Master Blender Jim Beveridge in collaboration with filmmaker Denis Villeneuve.

Referred to as a "futuristic expression" in a press release, the whiskey's bottle is the highlight. It sports a futuristic bottle inspired by the Johnnie Walker Black Label iconic prop from the original Blade Runner.
