A Richmond liquor store will be one of only five in B.C. to carry the full set of a Game of Thrones-inspired single malt series arriving on Saturday, Jan. 19.
The Richmond Brighouse government-run BC Liquor Store at No. 3 and Ackroyd roads will be among the few retailers in the province offering a limited edition collection of single malt scotch whiskies dedicated to the hit TV series Game of Thrones.
The collection, from Diageo, is being released to mark the final season of the HBO series and will feature eight scotches, each paired with one of the Houses of Westeros and the Night's Watch, giving fans of the series a taste of the Seven Kingdoms and beyond.
"We are very excited to offer this amazing collection of scotches to our customers," said Adele Shaw, BC Liquor Stores' category manager for spirits.
"This whisky series is sure to appeal to both the Game of Thrones fans as well as whisky enthusiasts.
“They're coming from some of the most iconic scotch distilleries in Scotland with a wide range of flavour profiles, from the sweetly peated Lagavulin to the tropical fruit flavours of Clynelish."
Due to the limited quantities of four of the whiskies in the collection, the entire set of scotches will only be available at the following BC Liquor Stores:
39th and Cambie, Vancouver
Park Royal, West Vancouver
Fort Street, Victoria
Kelowna Orchard Park
The remainder of the collection will be available at 50 select BC Liquor Stores. Individual bottles range in price from $65 to $150 and will hit the shelves on Jan. 19.
