Mackinlay's Shackleton Rare Old Highland Malt Whisky

Mackinlay's Shackleton Rare Old Highland Malt Whisky is inspired by Ernest Shackleton's stash of whisky from his Antarctic expedition in 1907

Spirits with great history add to the allure of the drinking experience. Stories don't come any better than the one attached to Mackinlay's.

In 1907, Ernest Shackleton led an expedition to the Antarctic. The trip ended in failure, but a century later, the explorer's whisky stash was discovered there, buried under the ice. Using these original bottles as a guide, Master Blender Richard Paterson recreated the Shackleton whisky at its original 47.3 percent strength. There is a fistful of peat in this bottling, but before it becomes overwhelming, a soft floral note comes in to balance the blend's muscular nature.
