Mackinlay's Rare Old Highland Malt is a re-creation of the original malt whisky shipped to Antarctica in 1907 by the explorer Ernest Shackleton to fortify his 'Nimrod' expedition. Five wooden crates of Shackleton’s malt were abandoned to the Antarctic winter in early 1909, and left buried deep in the ice beneath the expedition hut. Almost a century later, the New Zealand Antarctic Heritage Trust had a single crate flown to Canterbury Museum in New Zealand for careful preservation. The long-lost malt provided the inspiration for this faithful re-creation of both the whisky, using contemporary aged stocks and its distinctive packaging presentation. The result commemorates the enduring spirit of another time.
