In celebration of the eighth and final season of the critically-acclaimed TV series, Game of Thrones, Johnnie Walker is proud to introduce a number of products inspired by the show.
White Walker by Johnnie Walker
Created by whisky specialist and blender George Harper, this unique, new limited-edition whisky was inspired by the most enigmatic and feared characters on the show—the White Walker. Known by their icy blue eyes and led by the Night King, the undead army of White Walkers have emerged from the Frozen North bringing with them the chill of winter.
At the heart of this innovative blend are single malts from Cardhu and Clynelish—one of Scotland’s most northern distilleries.
White Walker by Johnnie Walker is best served directly from the freezer as this whisky develops complexity as it warms to room temperature. The new 41.7% ABV blend features notes of caramelized sugar and vanilla, as well as fresh red berries with a touch of orchard fruit.
The packaging evokes a winter setting with icy white and blue coloring inspired by the White Walkers who are known for their chilling powers of ice and cold. Johnnie Walker and Game of Thrones fans alike will be reminded that “Winter Is Here” from an unexpected icy
reveal on the bottle itself. The limited-edition bottle utilizes thermochromic ink to give fans a surprise message when frozen.
White Walker will be available nationwide starting October 2018 until supplies last with a U.S. SRP of $36 for 750ml.
