The collaboration marks the latest step in the Chivas Brothers’ The Digital Spirits Project, which aims to open up the Scotch whisky category to a new generation through the mediums of film, television and video games.
One sip of the whisky is said to transport fans to the post-apocalyptic world of Joel and Ellie. Kevin Balmforth, blending manager at Chivas Brothers, commented on the release: “We are extremely proud about this new collaboration with Naughty Dog and all we have achieved with Moth & Wolf. Die-hard fans can now experience The Last of Us Part II in a new and unique way with a dram of this exciting whisky. I can’t wait for blended whisky fans to taste what we’ve been working on, and to welcome more drinkers into the wonderful world of whisky.”
The expression isn’t the first to be inspired by a video game in recent times, with Ballantine’s having released a 12 year old Finest Moxxi’s Bar scotch whisky in reference to the Borderlands franchise.
Details on pre-ordering will be announced soon, on both the Chivas Brothers’ social channels and The Digital Spirit’s Project’s website.
