Brace yourself, whisky is coming

Following the recent news that Game of Thrones will be returning in April 2019 with their final season, Johnny Walker has released a special edition collaboration with HBO – the White Walker by Johnny Walker.

Inspired by the Frozen North, whisky specialist George Harper and a small team of expert blenders at Johnny Walker chose Single Malts from Scotland’s most Northern distilleries, Cardhu and Clynelish. Expect to find notes of caramelised sugar, vanilla, fresh red berries, and a touch of orchard fruit in your dram – best served directly from the freezer, not unlike the Night King himself.

The exterior is just as impressive as the blend: the Striding Man is dressed in similar costume as the White Walker army, and a surprise appears on the bottom of the bottle thanks to temperature-sensitive ink that reveals the words ‘Winter is here’ when it’s been frozen.

This special edition bottle is now available for pre-order in Singapore exclusively at 1855 The Bottle Shop, and the first 50 pre-orders will get invitations to the upcoming White Walkers party (no word on whether you need to get your cosplays ready). From 1 December onwards the 700ml bottles will be available at 1855 The Bottle Shop, Cold Storage, and Redmart at SG$75.
