Mackinlay's Rare Old Highland Malt Whisky (700ml)

Mackinlay's Rare Old Highland Malt Whisky (700ml)

Mackinlay's Rare Old Highland Malt Whisky and the story that surrounds the creation of this remarkable Scotch Whisky is one of the world's truly great tales. A commemorative bottling of some of Scotland's greatest malts that have been aged for between 8 and 30 years have come together in tribute to a whisky that was found entombed deep in the Antarctic ice nearly 100 years after being left there by Ernest Shackleton and his expedition team from 1907. The Rare Old Highland Malt was ordered by Shackleton to sustain his team as it was considered one of the classic Highland malts of its time. Unfortunately the journey was cut short of its final destination and 3 crates of the whisky were left behind for the New Zealand Antarctic Heritage Trust to find. The discovery was flown to Scotland to be analysed and after careful and painstaking deconstruction, all of the elements of the original whisky were identified and have been reproduced in this very limited bottling of Mackinlay's Rare Old Highland Malt Whisky.
