Whileguests were thrilled by the actions on the screen from the Game of Throne screening they were also treated to chill of the ice-inspired attractions, including delicious cocktail serves of the globally-acclaimed White Walker whisky brand.
Prior to the screening on May 20, the organisers had to cope with a huge pressure from fans of the TV series that wanted to watch the final episode of the record-breaking show. The development made White Walker to double the screening capacity in both Lagos and Abuja locations.
The limited edition White Walker by #JohnnieWalker is a unique blend of whisky, playfully inspired by GOT, and has an ABV of 41.7%, representing GOT’s 7 kingdoms and 1 Iron Throne. The blend can be enjoyed in a variety of twists, with its crisp notes of caramelised sugar, vanilla, fresh red berries and a touch of orchard fruit. It is still avalible in Nigrria in leading stores and online.
