WINTER is coming, but Game of Thrones fans will be able to keep themselves warm with a new limited-edition White Walker whisky. Launched in collaboration with TV network HBO and the show, Johnnie Walker unveiled the new drink yesterday.

It is named after the most feared characters on the show, the White Walkers, and fans will be clambering to grab one of the £32 bottles in the lead-up to the highly anticipated final season.

Jeff Peters, vice-president of licensing and retail at HBO, said: “We knew there was fan appetite for a Game of Thrones whisky and once we saw the vision from Johnnie Walker for a way to collaborate we knew the idea was perfect.”

The bottle brings you right to the Frozen North, with an icy white and blue design along with the iconic Johnnie Walker Striding Man, now fashioned in armour to fit in among the ranks of the Night King’s forces.

Using temperature-sensitive ink technology, fans will be reminded that “Winter is Here” from an unexpected graphic, which is revealed when the bottle is frozen Said to have notes of caramelised sugar, vanilla and fresh red berries, the whisky features single malts from northern distilleries, Cardhu and Clynelish. Lead blender George Harper said: “Whiskies from Clynelish have endured long, Scottish winters, not dissimilar to the long periods endured by the Night’s Watch who have ventured north of the wall – so it was the perfect place to start when creating this unique whisky.”

The release of Game of Thrones’ final season isn’t until the first half of 2019, so this whisky will have to satisfy fans’ appetites until then.

Johnnie Walker have released special edition whiskies before, such as a Blade Runner 2049 limited release, which now costs in excess of £300 to buy from resellers after going out of stock almost immediately.
