It’s safe to say we’re going to need a stiff drink to get through the final season of Game of Thrones when the epic drama returns to our screens sometime early next year. Thankfully, Johnnie Walker have recognised this fact and are bringing us a limited edition scotch whiskey called ‘White Walker’ to calm our nerves.
The special release is a nod to the fearsome blue-eyed villains and features an icy blue design with the Johnnie Walker ‘Striding Man’ logo clad in armour, similar to the Night King’s undead minions.
Best served straight from the freezer, the scotch has notes of caramelised sugar and vanilla, fresh red berries with a touch of orchard fruit, and features single malts from Cardhu and Clynelish – one of Scotland’s most northern distilleries. Sounds delicious, right?
But, perhaps the best bit is what happens when you put the bottle in the freezer. Once the temperature drops, a surprise graphic is revealed to remind us that winter is (almost) here.
White Walker by Johnnie Walker will be available in Australia from late November until supplies last for $65RRP.
Game of Thrones (s8) is expected to air sometime in early 2019.
