Diageo has rolled out the final single malt whisky in its Game of Thrones tie-up. Six Kingdoms is a 46% abv, 15yo from Speyside’s Mortlach distillery.

The latest launch is the ninth single malt to be released by the company - with the eight others being named after each of the Game of Thrones houses. The company also last year released a blended scotch - White Walker by Johnnie Walker - as part of the HBO partnership.

‘Inspired by the finale of HBO’s iconic 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 long-held Seven Kingdoms ultimately became six at the conclusion of the show’s climactic battle for the Iron Throne,’ the company said.

Six Kingdoms has been matured in first-fill sherry-seasoned casks and finished in American oak ex-bourbon casks.

‘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,’ said Kavita Agarwal, Diageo global brand director, malts. ‘Mortlach is one of our most sought-after superpremium single malts, and seemed fitting as the... finale to complete the collection.’

Six Kingdoms has a RRP of £120/70cl.
