Prime employer for women Diageo will be celebrating Scotch, the world’s favourite whisky across the globe on Thursday February 8th with a series of red carpet, star-studded events to mark International Scotch Day.

International Scotch Day is a celebration of everything that gives the world’s favourite dram its unique character, flavour and personality - and invites adults everywhere to raise a glass of Scotch in celebration on the day.  International Scotch Day is held during the week of the birthday of one of the world’s most influential Master Blenders - Alexander Walker the son of John ‘Johnnie’ Walker who brought Scotch to the world.

This year’s celebrations will be bigger than ever, taking place in over 70 countries worldwide, almost doubling the volume of last year’s inaugural celebrations and truly getting the world talking, thinking and enjoying Scotch. This 2018 campaign has seen actor James Marsden, supermodel Shanina Shaik and actress Suki Waterhouse invited to lead a series of special celebrations to celebrate 2018 International Scotch Day.
