In the early 20th century Sir Ernest Shackleton led one of the most famous expeditions to the Antarctic and took with him 25 cases of Mackinlay's Rare Old Highland malt whisky. In 2007 11 intact bottles of this whisky were found perfectly preserved under the ice beneath Shackleton's base camp. Mackinlay's say Master Blender Richard Patterson, inspired by this, has created this whisky using the best Highland malts, allowing them to marry over a long period to create and enigmatic blend. A contribution from the sale of each bottle will go to the Antarctic Heritage Trust.
