In honour of the enduring legacy of the critically acclaimed HBO™ series Game of Thrones comes two limited edition bottles – Johnnie Walker Song of Ice and Song of Fire whisky sets.
The two whiskies are inspired by the iconic and powerful houses of Westeros, House Stark and House Targaryen, and are successors to White Walker by Johnnie Walker, a limited-edition blend launched in 2018.
Whether in conflict or harmony, this is a tale of two great houses represented by two ancient creatures. One is a house descended from the First Men, rulers of the North and builders of the wall – they thrive in the icy-cold climate of the Direwolf. The other, a noble family of Valyrian descent and the first royal house of the Seven Kingdoms. Fire courses through their veins and is made flesh in the form of their dragons. From House Stark comes A Song of Ice, from House Targaryen A Song of Fire.
Together, the two whiskies celebrate the dynamic relationship between the houses, represented by their house sigils – the Direwolf and the Dragon – which fiercely adorn each bottle.
As another nod to the complicated interactions between the two great houses in the show’s storyline, Johnnie Walker’s iconic Striding Man uncharacteristically faces backwards on the A Song of Fire bottle, revealing a face-off with the Striding Man on the A Song of Ice bottle when paired side-by-side.
Inspired by the sharp Winterfell terrain Johnnie Walker A Song of Ice features single malts from Clynelish, one of Scotland’s most northern distilleries. It exudes a crisp, clean taste like the unforgiving force of ice that shapes mountains and stops rivers. The whisky’s delicate flavour is green and grassy, with notes of vanilla and tropical fruit akin to the fruit from the orchards of Dorne. The bottle design evokes an icy setting with frosted blue and gray colors inspired by the North, famed for its cold winters and arctic frozen landscapes. Best enjoyed on the rocks delivering a cold, smooth finish at an ABV of 40.2%.
Johnnie Walker A Song of Fire is rich and spicy, boasting flavors of subtle smoke from the peated malts of the Caol Ila distillery – synonymous with the House in which it hails from delivering a full-bodied flavor with notes of subtle red fruit, a sweet smoke and hint of spice. Inspired by the dragons of House Targaryen, feared for their fire breathing, the bottle design evokes a fiery setting with deep-red colors inspired by the dragons of House Targaryen. Best enjoyed neat for a warm, smooth finish at an ABV of 40.8%. Discover our recipe ideas for the ultimate inspiration to make this fiery drink.
