Inspired by the finale of HBO’s iconic series, the ninth and final bottling in the Game of Thrones whisky collection pays tribute to the fate of Westeros, whose long-held Seven Kingdoms ultimately became six at the conclusion of the show’s climactic battle for the Iron Throne.

Encased in a metallic gold cannister that features an intricate pen and ink drawing of the three-eyed raven.

“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,” said Jeff Peters, vice president, licensing and retail at HBO.

Mortlach is to be founds on the hills of Dufftown. Owners and builders George and Alexander Cowie were integral influences for both the distillery and surrounding community, with George holding the esteemed title of Provost and Alexander developing Mortlach’s signature method to distil the liquid exactly 2.81 times.

Evocative of the past and crafted for the future, the Mortlach single malt Scotch whisky Aged 15 Years, has been matured in first-fill sherry-seasoned casks and finished in American Oak ex-Bourbon casks. The delicious whisky imparts a bold, smooth taste with notes of vanilla and spice befitting of those with a noble palate.

“We saw an overwhelmingly positive response to the launch of the 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. Mortlach is one of our most sought-after super premium single malts, and seemed fitting as the perfect finale to complete the collection,” commented Kavita Agarwal, Diageo global brand director, Malts.

Game of Thrones Six Kingdoms – Mortlach 15 Years Old will be available in extremely limited quantities alongside the full collection starting this month wherever fine spirits are sold and available today for pre-order at Amazon.
