To bolster team spirit on his Antarctic expedition of 1907, Sir Ernest Shackleton personally ordered 25 cases of a Highland malt whisky. A century later, three cases were discovered, frozen into the ice beneath his base camp. The whisky was excavated and flown to New Zealand to be thawed out. Through careful analysis, its exact constituents were worked out, and the whisky recreated. Master brewer Ken Duncan tells the story, with polar historian Dr Maria Pia Casarini setting the scene.
