There are a lot of whiskey drinkers out there. There are a lot of Game of Thrones fans out there. There can’t be any surprise therefore, that at some stage the paths of these two great entities would cross and something great would emerge. No, it’s not that all Game of Thrones DVD’s now come with a free bottle of (good quality) whiskey, sadly – a person can dream can’t they – nor is it that whiskey was used to bribe the producers into redoing season eight. No. What you get is the less exciting but more realistic and achievable Game of Thrones whiskey glasses.
Now you may be wondering why there are Game of Thrones whiskey glasses when neither whiskey nor whiskey glasses feature in the books or the TV show. The obvious answer is that fans of the show like all manner of Game of Thrones paraphernalia, so featuring Game of Thrones on whiskey glasses and decanters was far more inevitable than Bran becoming King of Westeros.
On the other hand, one of the last major Game of Thrones revelations was that the people of the Seven Kingdoms drink coffee from Starbucks coffee cups and bottled water from plastic water bottles, so it’s not unreasonable to assume they drink whiskey from crystal whiskey glasses too.

Game of Thrones Whiskey Glasses With Sigils and Words
There are nine Great Houses in Westeros. Though with all that killing, incest and general plotting to win the Iron Throne, there’s been a certain amount of usurping, replacement, retaking of power, a new Great House, some Great Houses becoming extinct – a bit like the Iron Throne itself – and other Great Houses on the verge of becoming extinct.
Each House has their own symbol or sigil, as well as their own motto or words that usually reflects their character, philosophy or political strategy. House mottos or words can be somewhat aggressive – in some cases being more like boasts, threats or battle-cries – and reflect a more bellicose character, or philosophy. Hence all the killing, incest and general plotting to win the Iron Throne that I might have already mentioned.
But it’s these Great Houses with their characteristics, philosophies and political strategies, that are at the core of the Game of Thrones story, which is why Game of Thrones whiskey glasses feature the sigils and / or words of the more powerful of the Great Houses – those who actually stood a chance of winning the Game of Thrones.

Having a famous Game of Thrones quote on a whiskey glass is one thing but having a famous Game of Thrones quote on a whiskey glass that also has something to do with your love of whiskey, is even better. Now Tyrion Lannister may not have been referring to whiskey when he said, “That’s what I do. I drink and I know things”, but you’ll mean whiskey when you say it – and if you have a Game of Thrones whiskey glass with this quote on you will say it.

It doesn’t end with Game of Thrones whiskey glasses. It doesn’t even end with Game of Thrones decanters or Game of Thrones whiskey glasses and decanter sets. It ends with personalized Game of Thrones whiskey glasses and decanter sets.
At least for the moment.

Merging the Two Interests
Now, it’s one thing to bring together two things you like by taking a great quote or image from one and putting it on the other but quite another to really merge the two interests by creating a brand-new quote that comes from one but is adapted to refer to the other. Happily, there are Game of Thrones whiskey glasses and decanter sets which do exactly that.
They achieve this by taking the motto of House Stark – ‘Winter Is Coming’ – and transforming it into a saying that retains much of its original intent but whose subject has been amended, if not improved, so that it now refers to something all whiskey drinkers will prefer. House Stark’s words are a warning. On the other hand, “Whiskey Is Coming” and “Alcohol Is Coming” are joyous tidings.

Great Drinking Is Coming
Oh, now I get it.
Some whiskey glasses are scientifically designed to bring out all the flavors in your whiskey. They have been carefully constructed so that there’s enough room to let the whiskey breathe and the ethanol evaporate while at the same time they have the perfect shape to concentrate the aromas and allow them to accumulate. After many years of practice, you will know how to nose your whiskey and pick up all the subtle flavors and savour them.
There is, however, another way of enhancing your whiskey drinking experience. You may not pick up all the aromas, but you will relive all the moments you loved in Game of Thrones.
With a game of thrones whiskey glass, great drinking is coming.
