Whisky Recovered from Antarctica Replicated

Earlier this year McKinlay and Co whisky was removed from the ice at one of the camps Shackleton left behind from his 1909 Nimrod Antarctic Expedition.  The company ( Whyte & Mackay distillery) that now owns McKinlay and Co whisky has studied the only whisky formulation and successfully replicated its unique flavor.

The Scotland Whyte & Mackay distillery will be selling 50,000 bottles of the replication.  The bottles are priced at £100 and 5% of each sale will go to the Antarctic Heritage Trust.
