Game of Thrones fans can now complete their limited edition whisky collection as Diageo announce the launch of the ninth and final bottling.  

Dubbed Six Kingdoms, the final bottling is a 15-year-old Mortlach and concludes the series of whiskies that were inspired by HBO’s iconic series.

Paying tribute to the fate of Westeros, whose long-held Seven Kingdoms ultimately became six at the conclusion of the show’s climactic battle for the Iron Throne, the latest expression is encased in a metallic gold canister that features an intricate pen and ink drawing of the three-eyed raven.

Jeff Peters, vice president, licensing & retail at HBO said: “Eight fantastic Scotches toasted the coming of the final season of the show, and we now look back on the most captivating television show of all time and raise a ninth glass in celebration.”

Created using the Dufftown distillery’s famously complex distillation process, which distils the liquid exactly 2.81 times, the Six Kingdoms has been matured in first-fill sherry-seasoned casks and finished in American Oak ex-bourbon casks, and is described as having a “bold, smooth taste” with notes of “vanilla and spice befitting of those with a noble palate”.

With an RRP of £120 for 700ml, Six Kingdoms will be available in extremely limited quantities alongside the full collection starting this month.

Kavita Agarwal, Diageo global brand director of malts added: “We saw an overwhelmingly positive response to the launch of the Game of Thrones Limited Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection and as Game of Thrones fans continue to explore both the world of whisky and the world of Westeros, we are proud to introduce the final addition to the collection. Mortlach is one of our most sought-after super premium single malts, and seemed fitting as the perfect finale to complete the collection.”
