A polo with a twist: Introducing Johnnie Walker’s ‘Game of Thrones’ limited editions 

Jozi's who's who are in for a special treat as the Diageo owned blend debuts their newest, Game of Thrones inspired offerings - Song of Fire and Song of Ice - at the Johnnie Walker Warrior Polo at Inanda Club, Johannesburg on Sunday.

Celebrating the enduring legacy of the brand’s relationship with the Game of Thrones, this is a call for guests to showcase their best interpretation of the global phenomenon –  from Margaer Tyrell’s signature plunging necklines, low-scooping backs to Daenerys Targaryen’s detailed off-the-shoulder white dresses, and the studded leather amor and riding trousers, you name it! 

True to the sophisticated Johnnie Walker style, it’s polo with a twist, where there’ll be some of Mzansi’s most respected DJs and producers, A-listers, beautiful sunsets and some tasty cocktails drinks from the House of Walker, and everything in between. 

An epic collaboration 

In a continued collaboration with HBO, the two limited edition whiskies are inspired by the iconic and powerful houses of Westeros – House Stark and House Targaryen.

The brand new whiskeys are successors to the White Walker by Johnnie Walker limited edition blend launched in 2019.

From House Stark comes A Song of Ice, from House Targaryen A Song of Fire. Together, the two whiskies celebrate the dynamic relationship between the houses, represented by their house sigils – the Direwolf and the Dragon – which fiercly adorn each bottle.

As another nod to the complicated interactions between the two great houses in the show’s storyline, Johnnie Walker’s iconic Striding Man uncharacteristically faces backwards on the ‘A Song of Fire‘ bottle, revealing a face-off with the Striding Man on the A Song of Ice bottle when paired side-by-side.

Johnnie Walker A Song of Ice features single malts from Clynelish, one of Scotland’s most northern distilleries, and exudes a crisp, clean taste like the unforgiving force of ice that shapes mountains and stops rivers.

Johnnie Walker A Song of Fire on the other hand is a rich and spicy, boasting flavors of subtle smoke from the peated malts of the Caol Ila distillery. Inspired by the dragons of House Targaryen, feared for their fire breathing, the bottle design evokes a fiery setting with deep-red colors.
