Winter may be here, but we still have to wait at least a few months to find out the fate of Westeros. As we countdown to the next (and final) season of Game of Thrones premiering in 2019, there’s only one way to drown our sorrows: in a bottle of whiskey.
Starting this month, Johnnie Walker is debuting a limited-edition GOT-themed whiskey, appropriately titled “White Walker”. The icy-looking bottle features a special message for fans when frozen, and is said to be best served straight from the freezer. With a flavor lineup of caramelized sugar, red berries, and vanilla, Johnnie Walker sets out to capture the feeling of the dead-beyond-the-wall in a single bottle.
“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,” said Jeff Peters, licensing and retail Vice President of HBO. “From the beginning, they understood that we wanted to create something special, and they’ve accomplished that with White Walker by Johnnie Walker.”
Game of Thrones is no stranger to alcohol partnerships. The HBO show has partnered with companies like Brewery Ommegang and Vintage Wine Estates to create specially made beverages with names like “Queen of the Seven Kingdoms” and “King in the North”.
White Walker is only available until supplies last for $39.99.
