George R.R. Martin, the writer behind the novels that inspired the popular series, is a huge fan of Basil Hayden’s Bourbon. They’ve even created a cocktail inspired by the series to celebrate the weekend’s premiere!
Basil Hayden’s Fire & Ice is inspired by the struggle to defend the Iron Throne and the feuding families in Westeros. The cocktail combines our spicy bourbon with the intense flavors of tangy lime juice, spicy jalapeño and sweet pomegranate juice to create a dynamic fusion of fire and ice in every sip. It makes for the perfect cocktail to mix up while you enjoy the new season this Sunday night!!
