Ernest Shackleton’s whiskey recreated

Distillers have recreated the whisky Ernest Shackleton took with him on his doomed expedition to reach the South Pole in 1907-1909.

Samples of the Shackleton whisky were analysed at Whyte & Mackay’s Invergordon distillery.

The Glasgow-based company’s master blender Richard Paterson then spent eight weeks blending a range of malts to get a replica of the 100-year-old Mackinlay’s liquid.
