It may have thawed Down Under, with the aromas of spring fresh in the air, but Johnnie Walker is here to remind you that the next winter is coming.
The iconic whisky brand has teamed up with HBO’s best-loved series, Game of Thrones, to release White Walker, a limited-edition Scotch Whisky inspired by the show’s terrifying army of White Walkers.
Whisky specialist and blender, George Harper, worked with a small team of experts to create a whisky that evokes the ‘chilling’ nature of the White Walkers. Just as the White Walkers strengthen and thrive in the cold of the Frozen North, this unique whisky is best served straight from the freezer.
The white and blue design of White Walker whisky transports the drinker to the harsh, icy terrain of the Frozen North, with the famous Johnnie Walker Striding Man adorned in armour to blend in with the army of the Night King. The bottle, once frozen, also reveals a surprise winter graphic.
This Scotch has flavours of caramelised sugar and vanilla, fresh red berries and a hint of orchard fruit. To truly encompass the flavours of the Frozen North, the blend features single malt from one of Scotland’s most northern distilleries, Clynelish.
“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,” says blender George Harper. “So, it was the perfect place to start when creating this unique whisky.”
Johnnie Walker White Walker whisky will be available in Australian from late November, just in time for fans to toast the release of the show’s final season at the beginning of 2019. RRP $65 for 700ml .
