Top spirits for TV and film fans

16th September, 2019 by Owen Bellwood

From whiskies inspired by period dramas to decanters designed to look like iconic blockbuster characters, there are a host of spirits out there aiming to grab the attention of film and TV fans around the world.

Film and TV has provided a wealth of inspiration for the world’s spirit makers

From a limited edition Johnnie Walker bottling released alongside sci-fi thriller Blade Runner 2049 to the launch of a cocktail menu featuring drinks inspired by the world of Star Wars, the drinks industry has always been quick to strengthen its ties to the small and silver screens.

Whether it’s imbibers drinking like their favourite film stars, distillers immersing themselves in pop culture, there’s no denying the worlds of spirits and cinema have become intertwined.

More recently, spirits makers have strived to build their association with the world’s biggest franchises off-screen through a series of specially designed drinks.

A number of new film- and TV-inspired spirits have hit the market recently, so SB has rounded up the top releases for film and TV buffs.
