A new Skye whisky will pay homage to Game of Thrones.

A series of eight limited-edition whiskies will celebrate the eighth and final series of the popular series.

Released by Diageo and HBO, the whisky collection features eight Scotches, each paired with one of the Houses of Westeros and the Night's Watch, giving fans a taste of the Seven Kingdoms.  

The House Greyjoy - Talisker Select Reserve edition is distilled on Skye.  It was stated: "House Greyjoy rules the Iron Islands and worships the Drowned God.  Talisker was a natural pair of House Greyjoy, as this single malt is distilled on the shores of the Isle of Skye, one of the most remote and rugged areas of Scotland.

"The layered flavors and signature maritime character of Talisker Select Reserve are the result of its wave-battered shores.

"This liquid is an intense smoky single malt Scotch with spicy, powerful and sweet elements combined with maritime flavours."

The limited-edition collection is available now to pre-order from in the eight Diageo distilleries* which feature in the collection as well as on Amazon in GB. For those that order early, the Games of Thrones Single Malt Whisky Collection will start to land on doorsteps from February 19.
