Johnnie Walker, the world’s best-selling Scotch whisky, in collaboration with HBO Game of Thrones has unveiled the new White Walker by Johnnie Walker limited edition Scotch whisky.

The event was held on Wednesday night at Milan Club, Westlands in Nairobi.

The Scotch is inspired by the most enigmatic and feared characters the White Walkers on the hit show Game of Thrones and is here for fans to enjoy as anticipation builds towards the final season of the HBO show.

NEW BLEND

Created by whisky specialist George Harper, alongside the small team of expert blenders at Johnnie Walker, this innovative whisky is best served directly from the freezer, echoing the chilling presence of the White Walkers.

The winter-themed event treated celebrities, media influencers and fans of the hit show to an unprecedented immersive experience with a live orchestral performance of the Game of Thrones theme song as arranged by Johnnie Walker.

At the heart of this innovative new blend are single malts from Cardhu and Clynelish, one of Scotland’s most northern distilleries where whiskies have endured long Scottish winters, not dissimilar to the climate north of the wall.
