The hit show may have ended but GoT Fever endures! Johnnie Walker and HBO Licensing & Retail are introducing two new Scotch Whiskies in honor of the critically acclaimed HBO® series Game of Thrones. In a continued collaboration with HBO, these limited edition whiskey blends are inspired by the iconic and powerful houses of Westeros – House Stark and House Targaryen.
Johnnie Walker A Song of Ice features single malts from Clynelish, one of Scotland’s most northern distilleries, and exudes a crisp, clean taste like the unforgiving force of ice that shapes mountains and stops rivers. The new blend has an ABV of 40.2% and the bottle design evokes an icy setting with frosted blue and gray colors inspired by the North, known for its cold winters and frozen landscapes.
Johnnie Walker A Song of Fire is rich and spicy, boasting flavors of subtle smoke from the peated malts of the Caol Ila distillery with an ABV of 40.8%. Inspired by the dragons of House Targaryen, feared for their fire breathing, the bottle design evokes a fiery setting with deep-red colors.

“Johnnie Walker and Game of Thrones are an epic pairing. There is as much for people to discover and explore within the world of whiskey as there is within the world of the show,” said Sophie Kelly, Senior Vice President, Whiskies Diageo North America.
“Johnnie Walker A Song of Ice and A Song of Fire perfectly capture the essence of House Stark and House Targaryen, from the bottle designs to the unique Scotch whiskeys within. Each new blend brings to life a different profile of flavors – one crisp and clean, the other rich and spicy. We hope people enjoy trying both while reliving the series with friends.”
Johnnie Walker A Song of Ice and Johnnie Walker A Song of Fire will both be available nationwide August 2019 and globally starting October 2019 wherever fine spirits are sold until supplies last. Both have a SRP of $36 per bottle for 750ml.
