Death is so final, whereas life—ah, life is full of possibilities. Taking that chestnut to heart, Game of Thrones fans are scheming like Littlefinger to guess how it will all end. Whatever happens, we can’t get enough of the acclaimed series, whose eighth and last season launched April 14.

Its product spinoffs? Not so much. With the shamelessness of Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), showrunner HBO has lent the GoT name to the likes of Adidas, Oreos and Mountain Dew, Rolling Stone details.

House Scotch

To be fair, there’s also Diageo’s line of eight single malt Scotches celebrating the houses of Westeros and the Night’s Watch. Becky Paskin of Scotchwhisky.com gives most of them a thumbs up, plus a soundtrack for each one.

The show is a lifestyle as well as an entertainment brand, pop culture pundit Marissa DiBartolo tells MarketWatch. That goes double for whiskey and other booze: most GoT characters imbibe, and fans love to hold viewing parties. We’ve said it before, but there’s no story so good a drink won’t make it better.
