If you love whisky and Game of Thrones, keep your eyes peeled for Johnnie Walker's latest launch

Although the final season of Game of Thrones won’t hit out screens until next year, fans of the series won’t have as long a wait for Johnnie Walker’s latest limited edition.

Titled ‘White Walker by Johnnie Walker’, the brand have released a teaser campaign on their social media, with limited information on this Game of Thrones inspired release.

Eagle-eyed fans may have seen their video and statement: “Scotch is coming to the realm in the fall of 2018.

“HBO and Diageo have partnered to create White Walker by Johnnie Walker. We look forward to sharing more details in the coming months.”

In March this year, Diageo launched a limited edition Jane Walker 12 year old Black Label in support of International Woman’s Day and Woman’s History Month.

The limited edition bottles, which featured a striding woman instead of the usual dapper looking, top hatted man, were rolled out to coincide with the brand’s Keep Walking America campaign.

These were only available to buy in America, so the same may be true of the White Walker whisky.

Either way, it is sure to be popular thanks to the show’s cult following.

Johnnie Walker, which was established in Kilmarnock by John Walker, is one of Diageo’s oldest and best selling whisky brands.
