All men must die…and also drink. And some those drinks are whisky. Preferably a delicious, complex single malt sings to you the place it was made it. A good time a sip a dram would also be during the final season of Game of Thrones.
Diageo has clearly recognised the potential here, and has released a limited-edition Game of Thrones-inspired collection of eight single malt Scotch whiskies, each paired to a different house of Westeros as well as the Night’s Watch.
To mirror their houses, each of the eight expressions comes from a different distillery, where the whisky’s flavour or area of production mirrors the characteristics of the house. For House Tully, rulers of the Riverlands, there’s The Singleton Glendullan Select, a whisky made on the banks of the River Fiddich in the wooded hills of Dufftown; while the rugged, seafaring House Greyjoy is matched up with the peaty, saline Talisker Select Reserve, made on the shores of the Isle of Skye.
