Johnnie Walker and HBO Licensing & Retail have introduced two new Scotch whiskies in honour of the enduring legacy of the critically acclaimed HBO series Game of Thrones.
Johnnie Walker A Song of Ice features single malts from Clynelish, one of Scotland’s most northern distilleries, and exudes a crisp, clean taste while Johnnie Walker A Song of Fire is rich and spicy, boasting flavors of subtle smoke from the peated malts of the Caol Ila distillery.
A continued collaboration with HBO, the limited edition whiskies - inspired by the iconic and powerful House Stark of Winterfell and House Targaryen of Westeros - are now available in Kenya. The two new whiskies are successors to the White Walker by Johnnie Walker Limited Edition Scotch, which launched in 2018.
We were very proud to partner with Johnnie Walker again to bring more whiskies to the realm. The Game of Thrones audience continues to both engage with the culture fostered around the series and look for the special collectibles that let it live on. After seeing the excitement there was for White Walker by Johnnie Walker, we are thrilled to celebrate the end of an epic tale by offering more quality whisky for fans of the show and whisky enthusiasts to collect and enjoy, said Jeff Peters, Vice President, Licensing & Retail at HBO.
From House Stark comes A Song of Ice, and from House Targaryen A Song of Fire. Together, the two whiskies celebrate the dynamic relationship between the houses, represented by their house sigils – the Dire wolf and the Dragon – which fiercely adorn each bottle. As another nod to the complicated interactions between the two great houses in the show’s story line, Johnnie Walker’s iconic Striding Man uncharacteristically faces backwards on the A Song of Fire bottle, revealing a face-off with the Striding Man on the A Song of Ice bottle when paired side-by-side.
Every bottle of A Song of Ice and A Song of Fire comes with a virtual dire wolf or dragon. Fans of Johnnie Walker and Game of Thrones only need to click a link and scan their bottle to unlock a personalized AR experience which will be updated with new features a week later.
