April 24: Johnnie Walker scotch whiskey has brought the new White Walker made in collaboration with HBO and Game of Thrones. The limited-edition scotch whisky is inspired by the most enigmatic and feared characters of the most-watched television series - the White Walkers - and is available for the fans to enjoy as anticipation builds towards the final season, the company said in a statement.
“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 evokes their icy world,” the statement added.
Jeff Peters, vice president of Licensing and Retail at HBO, said they wanted to create something special.
“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. We’re confident fans will enjoy sipping this delicious whisky as they wait for season eight and beyond,” said Peters.
According to the company, the bottling brings the consumers right to the Frozen North with an icy white and blue design along with the iconic Johnnie Walker Striding Man now fashioned in armour to fit in among the ranks of the Night King’s forces.
Utilising temperature-sensitive ink technology, fans will be reminded that “Winter is Here” from an unexpected graphic icy reveal on the bottle when frozen, the statement added.
White Walker by Johnnie Walker is available globally, and now in Nepal for Rs 5400 (750ml 41.7% ABV).
