Default Johnnie Walker 1956

My first post, and thanks for allowing me to join this forum.

I have been lucky enough to obtain a Swing bottle of Johnnie Walker given to employees upon the opening of the Hill street plant in Kilmarnock in 1956. My question being, would anyone know what whisky would have been used for this bottling?

Hi Paul
Great bottle - very collectable. It does as you say contain a blend called "Swing" which has been around since the 1930s.
