Shackleton Scotch And Apothic Brew & Inferno Tasting


Shackleton Blended Malt Scotch - The story begins with Sir Ernest Shackleton.

Iconic polar explorer, and one of the greatest leaders the world has ever seen. A man whose expeditions are legendary. Driven by the desire to conquer uncharted lands, Sir Ernest embarked on an epic journey to reach the undiscovered South Pole, leading his team on the 1907 British Antarctic Expedition.

The extreme conditions saw the Pole slip from their grasp, but they returned as heroes, making headlines around the world after breaking all records to reach 88* South.

To bolster team spirit, Sir Ernest had personally ordered 25 cases of ‘Mackinlay’s Rare Old Highland Malt Whisky’ for the Antarctic expedition. In 2007 eleven bottles of this Scotch which has been hidden underneath the floorboards of the base camp hut for a century, were painstakingly recovered. World renowned Master Blender, Richard Paterson, brought bottles back to Scotland to uncover the secrets within this lost whisky.

Inspired by a passion for coffee, the winemaker has crafted an infusion like never before. Blended with intrigue, this limited release red blend is infused with cold brew coffee. Apothic Brew contains less caffeine than a standard cup of decaf. Notes of red fruit and toasted oak combine with hints of cold brew for a well-balanced blend that captivates you from the first pour.

Alongside we will be pouring Apothic Inferno. What better way to start a perfect weekend. Cheers !!
