We don't need Jon Snow to state the obvious: winter is coming. And it's not just the darkness seeping in earlier and earlier each evening or the steadily declining temperatures. No, there's something in the air - not a dragon - but rather an icy chill that can only mean one thing: the white walkers are near. Beyond the wall has officially arrived in a Shoreditch event space, as Johnnie Walker teams up with HBO and Game of Thrones for their latest whisky blend: White Walker.
For two days this November, you can join your fellow Night's Watch and trek through an icy immersive forest. Will your survive the deranged white walkers? The rather un-neighbourly wildings? 'Course you will and your reward comes in the form of a cocktail masterclass hosted by whisky pros Johnnie Walker. Along with teaching you about different blends, the bar will be serving up themed cocktails, including the likes of The Long Winter, The Night King, and The White Walker. But remember - the night is dark and full of terrors, especially when you've had too much whisky on a Friday night in Shoreditch.
Johnnie Walker Frozen Forest Whisky Experience is taking place at Kachette, 347 Old Street, EC1V 9LP, on Friday 9th and Saturday 10th of November. Tickets start from £10 and include two cocktails and a masterclass, and can be bought here.
