Inspired by the hit television series Game of Thrones, Johnnie Walker is launching a special White Walker by Johnnie Walker scotch whisky.

In collaboration with HBO®, this limited-edition scotch is inspired by the most enigmatic and feared characters on the popular show – the White Walkers – for fans to enjoy as anticipation builds towards the final season.

Created by whisky specialist George Harper, alongside the small team of expert blenders at Johnnie Walker, this innovative whisky is best served directly from the freezer, echoing the chilling presence of the White Walkers.

The Scotch has notes of caramelised sugar and vanilla, fresh red berries with a touch of orchard fruit and features Single Malts from Cardhu and Clynelish – one of Scotland’s most Northern distilleries.

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 and now a limited-edition whisky that evokes their icy world. 

Using temperature-sensitive ink technology, fans will be reminded that “Winter is Here” from an unexpected graphic icy reveal on the bottle when frozen.

“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," says Jeff Peters, Vice President, Licensing & Retail at HBO.

“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,”

White Walker by Johnnie Walker will be available in Australia from late November until supplies last with an RRP of $65 for 700ml (41.7% ABV).
