Diageo will launch the ninth and final bottling in its limited-edition Game of Thrones Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection.
Called Six Kingdoms – Mortlach Single Malt Scotch Whisky Aged 15 Years, the spirit is matured in sherry-seasoned casks and finished in American oak ex-bourbon casks.
Diageo joined forces with television network HBO earlier this year to release eight Game of Thrones-themed whiskies.
“We saw an overwhelmingly positive response to the launch of the Game of Thrones Limited Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection and as Game of Thrones fans continue to explore both the world of whisky and the world of Westeros, we are proud to introduce the final addition to the collection,” said Kavita Agarwal, Diageo global brand director, malts.
The 15-year-old Mortlach is the final whisky to join the Game of Thrones range.
“Mortlach is one of our most sought-after super premium single malts, and seemed fitting as the perfect finale to complete the collection.”
Encased in a metallic gold canister that features the three-eyed raven, which is seen throughout the eight seasons of the series, Six Kingdoms is said to have “a bold, smooth taste with notes of vanilla and spice”.
Jeff Peters, vice president, licensing and retail at HBO, said: “Eight fantastic Scotches toasted the coming of the final season of the show, and we now look back on the most captivating television show of all time and raise a ninth glass in celebration.”
Game of Thrones Six Kingdoms – Mortlach Aged 15 Years will be available in “extremely limited quantities” in the US this December with a suggested retail price of $150 for 750ml bottles.
