Yes, fans of HBO’s award-winning fantasy series can now satiate their thirst for all things Game of Thrones with a new range of wines inspired by the show.

Australian company Common Ventures have created ‘The Wines of Westeros’: a range of a dozen wines inspired by the characters’ drinking habits and based on the 12 houses in the show.

“After our favourite characters had scaled the wall, we were left with the idea to brand and create a wine for each of our favourite houses and their heroes,” Jane Burhop from Common Ventures explained to AAP.

“The sigil and variant of each bottle directly reflects the personality of each house. The reds are all associated with the houses that are head strong and robust. The whites on the other hand are more cunning, perceptive and mysterious.”

The range includes six white wines, namely The Arryn, The Greyjoy, The Stark, The Tyrell, The White Walker and The Wilding.

The red wines comprise of The Baratheon, The Dothraki, The Lannister, The Martell, The Night’s Watch and The Targaryen.

Jane Burhop added “This wine is made to be drunk with friends and to help soften the blow of the shock and heartache as our favourite characters are slowly killed off.”

Common Ventures hopes to coincide the launch of their wines with the premiere of season five in 2015. The wines will cost £11 a bottle and are to be sold in in both Australian independent liquor stores and online.

Houses Arryn, Greyjoy and Stark are sauvignon blancs, while the Lannister and Baratheon families get pinot noirs and the houses of Tyrell and Martell are a chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon respectively.

The Dothraki tribes are represented by a deep merlot, while House Targaryen and the Night’s Watch are shirazes.

Westeros wine will cost £11 a bottle and be on the market in time for the premiere of season 5 of the HBO adaptation in 2015.

Game of Thrones is far from the first TV show to get its own alcoholic beverage, with there previously being a Downton Abbey wine and a Simpsons ‘Duff’ beer.

Breaking Bad meanwhile caused tons of ‘crystal meth’ candy to hit the market.
