Full Product Description

Originally an occupational name for someone involved in the working, or ‘waulking’ of woven cloth to a thickness that would allow the tailoring of garments, ‘Walker’ derives from the Old English ‘wealcare’, while its Gaelic equivalents stem from ‘Mac an Fhucadar’.
Kinsfolk of Clan MacMillan, whose stronghold was Castle Sween in Knapdale, mid-Argyll, branches of the Walkers also settled much further southwest, in Galloway.
The name features prominently in the historical record, with many of its bearers paying a dear price for the allegiance to the religious Covenanting cause during ‘The Killing Time’ of 1684 to 1685, while in more peaceful times John Walker was the founder of the internationally famous Johnnie Walker brand of whisky that was first blended in the Ayrshire town of Kilmarnock in the 1820s.
