According to Dan Sanborn, Senior Vice President, Culture and Partnerships at DIAGEO,

 “Groundbreaking partnerships continue to be a strategic initiative for Diageo as they foster exceptional creative collaboration and help showcase the breadth of our portfolio.”

“We are very proud to have our collection of single malts and Johnnie Walker, the number one scotch whiskey brand in the world, collaborate with HBO’s most successful TV franchise to develop these limited-edition offerings for fans to collect and celebrate the final season of Games of Thrones.”

Johnnie Walker had previously made this announcement back in the month of May and had let us know of the launch of the beverage via its Twitter account with the caption:

“Scotch is coming to the realm this Fall – White Walker by Johnnie Walker. @GameOfThrones”

The official press release of the White Walker scotch whiskey reads:

“The first limited-edition offering available in the realm is White Walker by Johnnie Walker, inspired by the most enigmatic and feared characters on the show—the White Walkers. This blend was created by whisky specialist George Harper alongside the small team of expert blenders at Johnnie Walker”

“At the heart of this new, innovative blend are single malts from Cardhu and Clynelish – one of Scotland’s most northern distilleries where whiskies have endured long Scottish winters, not dissimilar to the climate north of the wall. This special blend has notes of caramelized sugar and vanilla, fresh red berries with a touch of orchard fruit and is best served chilled – the Night King would have it no other way. 

The bottling brings you right to the Frozen North with its icy white and blue design along with the iconic Striding Man now fashioned in armor to fit in among the ranks of the Night King’s forces. Utilizing temperature-sensitive thermal chromatic ink technology, fans will be reminded that “Winter is Here” from an unexpected graphic icy reveal on the bottle when frozen.”

Johnnie Walker launches Game of Thrones inspired whisky to celebrate the hit TV seriesAccording to Jeff Peters, the Vice President of Licensing & Retail at HBO,

“We knew there was fan appetite for a Game of Thrones whisky and once we saw Diageo’s vision for a way to collaborate together we knew the idea was perfect and the time was now. From the beginning, they understood that we wanted to create something special, and they’ve accomplished that with both White Walker by Johnnie Walker and the single malt collection. We’re confident fans will enjoy sipping these delicious whiskies as they wait for season eight and beyond.”

Game of Thrones finale script reveals Drogon didn’t burn the Iron Throne on purpose

Game of Thrones finale script reveals Drogon didn't burn the Iron Throne on purpose

Game of Thrones series finale was hated by the fandom to a degree where it triggered millions of people into signing a petition to remake the final season of the show. However, if there was one thing that everybody liked, it was Drogon burning the Iron Throne. Most of the fandom agreed that this was a great choice, but now it seems as though that might not have been intentional like we had thought. Read on!

Now, as you might know, Emmy nominated scripts are made available online, and with the series finale of Game of Thrones, titled “The Iron Throne” getting nominated, the script followed soon. What we saw in the show was Drogon burning the throne down, and the general interpretation was that Drogon was mad at the throne for being the real reason behind Daenerys’ death, and that Drogon wanted to break the wheel like his mother always wanted. However, the script has a different version of how it went down:

“Drogon wants to burn the world, but he will not kill Jon. He breathes fire on the back wall, blasting down what remains of the great red blocks of stone. We look over Jon’s shoulder as the fire sweeps toward the throne – not the target of Drogon’s wrath, just a dumb bystander caught up in the conflagration.”

Well, that’s awkward. The very reason why everybody liked the melting was that they assumed it was because Drogon was smart enough to see that it was the throne’s fault. Now, this looks like just another reason for the fans to hate the showrunners and writers/directors of the finale, David Benioff and Dan Weiss. In the meantime, the PDF of the script has been locked down on the Emmy website, requiring a login to be able to access.

What do you guys think about this reason? Would you have preferred it to be intentional? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa celebrated his 40th birthday with a 168-pound Guinness and whiskey cake

If there’s one Game of Thrones star that knows how to party, it’s Jason Momoa. The actor, who played the role of Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones, recently celebrated his 40th birthday at a surprise party thrown for him by his friends. Apparently, the party involved a giant 168-pound cake made out of Guinness and whiskey! Read on.

We had reported about the mini-reunion that Momoa had with his Game of Thrones co-star Emilia Clarke, who was present at the party. Now, further details have been revealed, and it looks like the cake was the star of the party, reports INSIDER.

Made by UK-based baker Aggy Dadan of Edible By Aggy, the cake was infused with Guinness and whiskey and took a week to make. It was served on a giant sugar surfboard, with a wave on one side and a mountain on the other, two things Momoa is known to love. It also featured mini-figurines of Momoa, shown climbing the mountain and playing the guitar while surfing on the wave. Check out the pictures:

Dagan said:

“I was thinking, what could be better than putting the whole thing on a sugar surfboard. We incorporated a little mini pint of Guinness, because he loves Guinness, and a little box of donuts for his best friend [Mada Abdelhamid], who calls himself ‘Donut Man.’

Jason is a big family man, so [Abdelhamid] wanted to include things that represented that in the cake. They left it pretty much up to me, which I love. I love when people let me use my creativity.”

Dagan had previously made a 3/4 scale Aquaman bust cake for Momoa for the premiere of the film, and Momoa seems to have stuck with her.
