The wait is over. Game of Thrones has returned and we can raise a glass to the Game of Thrones Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection as it hits Australian shores.
To celebrate the eighth and final season of the critically-acclaimed TV series, Game of Thrones, DIAGEO and HBO have released a limited-edition collection of Single Malt Scotch Whiskies. The collection features seven Scotch whiskies paired with six of the iconic Houses of Westeros, as well as the Night’s Watch, giving fans an authentic taste of the Seven Kingdoms.
Diageo’s unparalleled diverse range of distilleries in Scotland, much like in Westeros, each have their own unique characteristics and produce a distinctive whisky representative of its local terroir. These similarities were the inspiration behind the collection, drawing an authentic storyline between each House and single malt pairing. Whether you want to collect them all or represent your chosen House, be sure to pick up a bottle before they leave the realm.
If you’re looking for inspiration on which whiskies to collect, there is no shortage of details behind each iconic pairing. We love our Game of Thrones House Stark – Dalwhinnie Winter’s Frost. House Stark’s resiliency, strength and ability to thrive under the most intense situations are greatly shaped by Winterfell’s frigid temperatures. Dalwhinnie, known for being one of the highest distilleries in all of Scotland is cold and remote much like The North where House Stark calls home, making the two an iconic pairing. Extreme conditions are responsible for shaping the signature Dalwhinnie Winter’s Frost honeyed sweetness and spicy warmth. Naturally, it’s best served chilled or over ice.
The Game of Thrones Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection joins White Walker by Johnnie Walker, another limited-edition whisky in celebration of the hit TV series. White Walker by Johnnie Walker is inspired by the most enigmatic and feared characters on Game of Thrones - the White Walkers - and is available for $64.99 for 700ml (ABV 41.7%) while supplies last.
