In collaboration with AMC Networks and The Walking Dead, The Sexton® Single Malt unveils an exclusive, co-branded bottle to commemorate the final season and inspire its fans to enjoy life. To introduce the new release, America’s best-selling Irish single malt has teamed up with beloved The Walking Dead cast member, Ross Marquand, who plays a good-natured character known for his optimism in even the darkest of times.
The striking release depicts notions of The Walking Dead across The Sexton’s distinctive, black hexagonal bottle. Featuring a decaying silver label and a walker’s head in the place of the brand’s trademark skeleton logo, the packaging melds the post-apocalyptic show with the bottle’s most distinctive qualities. Quotes from cast members Daryl, Herschel, Rick and Michonne adorn the bottle, describing the harsh realities of existence experienced by characters throughout the series, an ironic reminder of The Sexton’s mantra – celebrate life.
To entice The Walking Dead’s huge fanbase, The Sexton Single Malt has partnered with series favorite, Ross Marquand, whose character, ‘Aaron’, has starred in the show since 2015. An Irish Whiskey enthusiast off-camera, Ross will serve as an ambassador for the Official Whiskey of The Walking Dead, and help celebrate the new, limited-edition bottle with fans of the show.
“After visiting the Emerald Isle several years ago, I developed a deep appreciation for the country and special whiskey, like The Sexton Single Malt, that’s made there. As a long-standing cast member of this powerful franchise, I’m so excited to unite two personal passions of mine and introduce our loyal following to The Official Whiskey of The Walking Dead,” said Marquand.
The Sexton’s The Walking Dead-inspired release will be available for purchase in limited quantities at wine and spirits retailers across the country starting at the end of February at a suggested retail price of $29.99. Devoted fans and whiskey enthusiasts eager to secure a bottle ahead of time can pre-order the offering starting today on ReserveBar.
Over the coming months, The Walking Dead fanatics and whiskey-lovers can also look forward to a national sweepstakes program and a number of interactive, fan-based experiences. Follow along on social @TheSexton and @RossMarquand for real time updates and information surrounding the partnership.
