Winter is coming, but your winter can be a whole lot warmer now thanks to a brand new Game of Thrones-inspired whisky!
HBO and Diageo have teamed up to bring you the limited edition White Walker by Johnnie Walker Blended Scotch Whisky and the Game of Thrones Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection. Much like the Game of Thrones beer series, each whisky in the collection is inspired by the unforgettable characters who dwell in Westeros.
Dan Sanborn, Senior Vice President, Culture and Partnerships at Diageo said, “Groundbreaking partnerships continue to be a strategic initiative for Diageo as they foster exceptional creative collaboration and help showcase the breadth of our portfolio. We are very proud to have our collection of single malts and Johnnie Walker, the number one scotch whisky brand in the world, collaborate with HBO’s most successful TV franchise to develop these limited-edition offerings for fans to collect and celebrate the final season of Games of Thrones.”
The first to be released from the Game of Thrones Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection is the White Walker by Johnnie Walker, of course, inspired by none other than the chilling White Walkers. Created by specialist George Harper, the whisky is described as containing, “notes of caramelized sugar and vanilla, fresh red berries with a touch of orchard fruit and is best served chilled – the Night King would have it no other way.”
Jeff Peters, Vice President, Licensing & Retail at HBO said, “We knew there was fan appetite for a Game of Thrones whisky and once we saw Diageo’s vision for a way to collaborate together we knew the idea was perfect and the time was now. From the beginning, they understood that we wanted to create something special, and they’ve accomplished that with both White Walker by Johnnie Walker and the single malt collection. We’re confident fans will enjoy sipping these delicious whiskies as they wait for season eight and beyond.”
