An intoxicating blend of Antarctic exploration in the ‘Heroic Era’ and the world of Scotch whisky, this book gives the full story behind the cases of Mackinlay’s Rare Old Highland Malt that were rediscovered under the hut of Ernest Shackleton’s 1907-09 British Antarctic Expedition 100 years after an epic attempt at the South Pole.
