Diageo Global Travel and HBO Licensing and Retail have introduced the final piece of the exclusive Game of Thrones Limited Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection (Six Kingdoms — Mortlach Single Malt Scotch Whisky Aged 15 Years).

This latest release follows last month’s introduction of the Song of Fire and Song of Ice whiskies which honour the legacy of the Game of Thrones series.

Inspired by the finale of HBO’s series, the ninth and final bottling in the Game of Thrones Limited Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection pays tribute to the fate of Westeros, whose Seven Kingdoms became six at the conclusion of the show’s battle for the Iron Throne.

STANDOUT PACKAGING

Encased in a metallic gold canister featuring a pen and ink drawing of the three-eyed raven, seen throughout the eight seasons of the series, the Six Kingdoms packaging pays homage to the last Greenseer and the independence of the North, which stands alone under The Queen in the North, leaving a reconfigured landscape known as The Six Kingdoms.

Games-of-Thrones-bottlesJeff Peters, Vice President, Licensing and Retail, 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.”

Anna MacDonald, Marketing and Innovation Director, Diageo Global Travel said: “The addition of a liquid as rare and sought after as this is a truly wonderful offering for our travelling consumers. A final homage to one of the most prolific series of all time, Six Kingdoms brings the collection to a close and we’re confident this latest edition will delight our single malt fans, just as the existing eight variants have done.”

Game of Thrones Six Kingdoms — Mortlach Aged 15 Years will be available in extremely limited quantities across selected airports and specialist Scotch whisky retailers this December, sold with a suggested retail price of £110 ($140/€125 for 70cl).
