Johnnie Walker And HBO Team Up For “Game Of Thrones” Scotch
For Game of Thrones fans who feel terrible at having to wait until 2019 for the next (and final) season of the series, there is now something to use to bide the time until we can enjoy brand new episodes of the American drama series.
Johnny Walker has announced its partnership with HBO to release a Game of Thrones scotch later this year. And, judging by the amount of alcohol consumed on the medieval fantasy show–side eye at the Lannisters–this collaboration makes even more sense.
However, this is not the first time an alcohol brand is teaming up with HBO. There is a GOT-themed ale made by Brewery Ommegang and a wine made by Vintage Wine Estates.
Game of Thrones is based off George R.R. Martin’s best-selling book series, A Song of Ice and Fire, where powerful families, including kings and queens, knights and renegades, and honest men and liars, fight in a deadly game to sit atop the Iron Throne and gain control of the Seven Kingdoms.
We wonder what will make this whiskey different from other products of Johnny Walker. Perhaps it will be a new rare scotch with a cool packaging that will only be drunk by White Walker fans as they await winter.
