Whyte & MacKay: The Antartica, South Pole Whisky and Richard Paterson

The arduous recovery of Ernest Shackleton's Whyte & MacKay MacKinlay's whiskey

Sir Ernest Shackleton's favourite whiskey, Whyte & MacKay's MacKinlay's blend, travelled with him on his last expedition to the South Pole!

You can see a similar bottle sitting here on the shelf in Richard Paterson's inner sanctum at Whyte & MacKays HQ in Glasgow.

Richard Paterson is the Master Blender, the 'Nose' of Whyte & MacKay.
