Game of Thrones and Johnnie Walker Made a Scotch Whisky, and It's About Damn Time

Suddenly, we wish we had actual winter here.

Only one winter separates us from the return of Game of Thrones, and finally, we have a drink to help us properly brace ourselves. Today, Johnnie Walker and HBO introduce the White Walker by Johnnie Walker and The Game of Thrones Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection, a limited-edition collaboration that makes us wonder how the hell this hadn't happened already.

According to a press release, the "limited-edition whiskies are inspired by the iconic characters and the creative world of Westeros and beyond and are here to tide fans over during their wait for the eighth and final season." The eighth season, expected to premiere in April, has been long-anticipated since the show last aired in July of 2017.

White Walker, available this month, is a 41.7% ABV blend of Scottish single malts with notes of carmelized sugar and vanilla. It's best served chilled (naturally) and comes in a 750ml bottle. In November, the Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection drops, featuring eight different scotches, each paired to a different House of Westeros and the Night's Watch. Prices will range from $29.99 to 64.99.
