Winter … I mean Whisky is coming. As us fans patiently wait for the highly-anticipated return of Game of Thrones this April, we can raise a glass to the Game of Thrones Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection as it officially hits Australian shores this week.
This limited-edition collection of Single Malt Scotch Whiskies will be sure to send fans into a craze, just like The Mad King. The collection features seven Scotch whiskies, which have been thoughtfully paired with six of the iconic Houses of Westeros as well as the Night’s Watch, giving fans an authentic taste of the Seven Kingdoms.
Diageo’s diverse range of distilleries in Scotland, much like in Westeros, each have their own unique characteristics and produce a distinctive whisky. These similarities were the inspiration behind the collection, drawing an authentic storyline between each House and single malt pairing. Whether you want to collect them all or represent your chosen House, be sure to pick up a bottle before they leave the realm.
For example, lets take a look at the story behind our favourite Mother of Dragons pairing. Game of Thrones House Targaryen – Cardhu Gold Reserve is fuelled by the same fiery spirit of the fierce female leadership of Daenerys Targaryen, celebrating legendary women and their unwavering perseverance. The Cardhu Distillery was pioneered by Helen Cumming and her daughter-in-law Elizabeth during the 1800s, a time when the whisky industry was almost entirely male-dominated.
So lets toast to the final season in a fashion Ned Stark would be proud of. Collect all seven whiskies while supplies last and be sure to celebrate the final season responsibly.
