Diageo releases Game of Thrones whisky

In October, we reported that Diageo had released an extended range of whiskies based on the TV series Game of Thrones, comprising the limited-edition White Walker by Johnnie Walker and The Game of Thrones Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection.

Unsurprisingly, this news has proved a hit with fans of the HBO fantasy drama, with the eight series of the programme due to be aired next year.

Jeff Peters, vice president, licensing & retail at HBO, said: “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.”
