SHACKLETON BLENDED MALT 40% 70CL
Based on the antique whisky supplied to the 1907 British Antarctic Expedition this story begins with Sir Ernest Shackleton. Iconic polar explorer, and one of the greatest leaders the world has ever seen. A man whose expeditions are legendary. Driven by the desire to conquer uncharted lands, Sir Ernest embarked on an epic journey to reach the undiscovered South Pole, leading his team on the 1907 British Antarctic Expedition. The extreme conditions saw the Pole slip from their grasp, but they returned as heroes, making headlines around the world after breaking all records to reach 88* South. To bolster team spirit, Sir Ernest had personally ordered 25 cases of ‘Mackinlay’s Rare Old Highland Malt Whisky’ for the Antarctic expedition. In 2007 eleven bottles of this Scotch which has been hidden underneath the floorboards of the base camp hut for a century, were painstakingly recovered. World renowned Master Blender, Richard Paterson, brought bottles back to Scotland to uncover the secrets within this lost whisky. "I wanted to capture the essence of Sir Ernest Shackleton within this whisky." - Richard Paterson, Master Blender Inspired by Sir Ernest Shackleton and his story, Richard Paterson has spent many years perfecting a new whisky. Shackleton Blended Malt has been expertly crafted by using a recreation of the antique Mackinlay’s as its foundation, combined with the finest Highland malt whiskies.
