White Walker By Johnnie Walker In Collaboration With Game Of Thrones

Johnnie Walker has unveiled the new White Walker by Johnnie Walker, a limited edition blended Scotch whisky which they have specially created in collaboration with HBO and their cult TV series Game of Thrones.

White Walker by Johnnie Walker is being released just as the anticipation builds up for the forthcoming final season of the hit show, it is said to have been inspired by the most enigmatic and feared characters on the Game of Thrones.

White Walkers is the creation by whisky specialist George Harper, alongside the small team of expert blenders at Johnnie Walker, the innovative whisky is said to be best served directly from the freezer, echoing the chilling presence of the White Walkers.

The bottling aims to bring consumers 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. Utilising temperature-sensitive ink technology, fans will be reminded that “Winter is Here” from an unexpected graphic icy reveal on the bottle when frozen.

White Walker by Johnnie WalkerSingle Malts from Cardhu and Clynelish – one of Scotland’s most Northern distilleries, feature in the product. Blender George Harper used the Frozen North as his starting point for creating White Walker by Johnnie Walker. It has been bottled at 41.7% ABV, which is an odd number, I am not a fan of the show myself but perhaps the number is significant, it will be priced around £34.

George Harper Blender and whisky specialist commented on his creation saying: "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."

Jeff Peters Vice President, Licensing & Retail at HBO commented: "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 and the time was now. From the beginning, they understood that we wanted to create something special, and they’ve accomplished that with White Walker by Johnnie Walker. We’re confident fans will enjoy sipping this delicious whisky as they wait for season eight and beyond."

White Walker by Johnnie Walker is part of a wider partnership with HBO and Diageo which will also see the launch of the Game of Thrones Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection. The collection features eight Scotches that are each paired with one of the iconic Houses of Westeros and the Night’s Watch giving fans an authentic taste of the Seven Kingdoms and beyond.

Given the popularity of the Game of Thrones show I have no doubt that White Walker by Johnnie Walker and the still to be launched Game of Thrones Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection will be very popular amongst collectors and fans of the show.

The Johnnie Walker White Walker Game of Thrones whisky is now currently available to order from Amazon priced at £34 including FREE DELIVERY and it will also soon be available specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt
