The week in pictures

22nd December, 2017 by Owen Bellwood

This week marks 20 years since Diageo formed following the merger of Grand Metropolitan plc and Guinness plc.

The company behind Johnnie Walker, Smirnoff and Tanqueray has been celebrating its 20th anniversary with a time capsule at Cardhu distillery, the home of Johnnie Walker, and a dram of Johnnie Walker Black Label.

The company launched on 17 December 1997, and Diageo’s chief executive, Ivan Menezes, along with the company’s team of Scotch whisky blenders, opened the market at the London Stock Exchange to mark the anniversary.
