Johnnie Walker has unveiled its range of Games Of Thrones-themed limited-edition whiskies, which include an original blended malt created for the series, as well as eight single malts, each paired with a House from the hit series.

First up, is White Walker, blended using single malts from Cardhu and Clynelish (one of Scotland’s most northerly distilleries).

It comes in a very cool (pun intended) blue and white bottle that also has temperature-sensitive ink technology which reveals a secret graphic when frozen. As such, the whisky is supposedly ‘best served ice cold from the freezer’.

With the blend named after the fearsome White Walkers in the hit HBO series, Johnnie Walker's Striding Man logo has also been given a suit of armour to reflect the warrior element in those characters.

Meanwhile, the Game of Thrones Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection features eight unique single malts, each paired with the various Houses of Westeros, as well as the Night’s Watch. The packaging of each unique malt also carry the emblem of the House it represents.

The eight single malts in the Game Of Thrones collection are:

– Singleton of Glendullan Select (House Tully)

– Dalwhinnie Winter’s Frost (House Stark)

– Cardhu Gold Reserve (House Targaryen)

– Lagavulin 9 Year Old (House Lannister)

– Talisker Select Reserve (House Grey Joy)

– Royal Lochnagar 12 Year Old (House Baratheon)

– Clynelish Reserve (House Tyrell)

– Oban Bay Reserve (The Night’s Watch)

The White Walker is due in Malaysia around November, while the single malt collection is expected in the first half of 2019, just before the premiere of the eighth and final season of Game Of Thrones.
