Fire and Bloody Hell This Scotch Is Fantastic.

Winter is coming once again and this time it's the final countdown to the war between Westeros and those pesky ice-zombies. To alleviate the period of waiting, HBO teamed up with DIAGEO, forged eight rare Scotches and paired them with the royal Houses of Westeros. Each bottle tells a wonderful story about one of the Seven Kingdoms and each has a character so unique, we're afraid the Writer might kill it off. It's time to bring some medieval intrigue to your home bar and hum the intro theme.

A bottle of Cardhu is a descendant of Scotland's own Daenerys, Helen Cumming, who was together with her daughter-in-law Elizabeth a badass Whisky-maker in the industry dominated entirely by men. Fueled by their fierce spirits, they created fiery Spirits that would make the dragons bow. And the lovely toasted characters from hand-picked oak casks is like from a dragon's fire. Celebrate strong and independent women with lizardy weapons of mass destruction by their side, and we shall Khaleesi you by the fireplace with a bottle of Cardhu.

Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
When Elizabeth Cumming sold the distillery to Johnnie Walker in 1893, it was under the condition that the Cumming Family -- who made up a large part of the current staff -- continue on running the day-to-day operations.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
The word Cardhu comes from the Gaelic "Carn Dubh," which means "black rock."
