Shackleton blended scotch whisky has an interesting history that will captivate any whisky lover. Shackleton’s whisky was discovered under an explorer’s hut in Antarctica after being hidden away for over a century. This brand of whisky is now a collector’s item and the drink itself is delicious. Strong, powerful and intense, Shackleton’s whisky lives up to its name.
Created in honour of legendary polar explorer, Sir Ernest Shackleton, Shackleton whisky is truly an expedition of flavour and a journey into the fine art of distilling.
Created by Whyte & Mackay, this blended malt whisky pays homage to the tale of 11 bottles of whisky, found frozen in the ice in 2007 – 100 years after the abandoned trip to the South Pole in 1907 that brought them there.
This whisky was profiled by experts to recreate the flavours of Shackleton’s favourite dram, a labour of love that has definitely been worth the wait. Originally matured in American oak sherry casks and matured in Orkney peat to dry the barley, the blend had a distinctly smokey taste that has been captured and realised in the Shackleton whisky you’re able to buy today.
