Created by Johnnie Walker in collaboration with HBO and Game of Thrones, White Walker by Johnnie Walker is a limited edition whisky inspired by the most enigmatic characters of the hit show – the White Walkers. From the bottle to the blend, JW’s White Walker whisky draws inspiration from the winters North of the Wall. Plus, utilizing temperature-sensitive ink technology, fans will be reminded that “Winter is Here” from an unexpected icy reveal on the bottle when frozen.
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 at 1.5 degrees, echoing the chilling presence of the White Walkers. It’s a great, easy-drinking whisky featuring notes of caramelized sugar and vanilla and fresh red berries with a touch of orchard fruit – creating a polished, sweet taste with a fruity twist.
Last March 28, weeks before the premiere of the first episode Game of Thrones Season 8, the #1 Scotch whisky brand transformed Whitespace Manila into a massive, immersive pop-up. Bringing together some of the country’s biggest fans, the event took guests on a journey through the different flavors of Johnnie Walker, leading to the final destination: to the north of the Wall.
The different areas put the spotlight on the flavors and textures of the different Johnnie Walker variants – the fire and zest of Red Label, the darkness and smoke of Black Label, the celebratory vibe and honey taste of Gold Label, and the richness and opulence of Blue Label. Shortly after, guests were sent into a halt before a colossal ice wall. The giant structure soon met a chilling collapse to reveal an ice bar: a shrine for White Walker by Johnnie Walker.
The event also brought together some of the show’s biggest fans in the country, namely Nico Bolzico, Tim Yap, Alodia Gosiengfiao, Sam YG, Patty Tiu, and Myrrh Lao To, to help bring to life the immersive journey to the Frozen North.
White Walker by Johnnie Walker is available until supplies last for PHP 1,299.00 at www.spiritsbyjohnnie.com and all leading supermarkets nationwide.
