Game of Thrones star adds weight to vodka launch at Co Antrim store

By John Mulgrew

A Game of Thrones giant has paid a visit to a Co Antrim specialist wine and spirits store to launch his new vodka.

Hafþor Julius Bjornsson, who plays the aptly named Mountain in the hit HBO series, landed in Light House Wines this week with his Icelandic Mountain Spirit vodka.

The strongman and actor, who stands at 6ft9inches, met with customers at the retailer, which is one of the first to sell his new spirit.

Damien Curran, owner of Light House Wines, said: “We needed no strong-arming to add Hafþor’s Icelandic Mountain Spirit to our portfolio.

“It is an exceptional new vodka and one which has had our customers, quite literally, queuing up to buy it.”
