The first task the team embarks on in the challenge to re-create this whisky is to acquire malt from Glen Mhor. The distillery was demolished in 1986, but limited stocks are combined with malt from Dalmore distillery, a close neighbour of Glen Mhor, to provide the base of the re-creation. To add the floral flavours, speyside malts such as Longmorn, Benriach, Glenfarclas, Mannochmore, Tamnavulin and Glen Rothes are selected and combined with Highland whiskies from Balblair and Pultney, along with a hints of aged Jura, to complete this puzzle. A masterful mix of malts varying in age from 8 to 30 years - all married in the finest sherry butts. Alongside the spirit, the bottle and packaging are painstakingly re-created. Bubbles in the glass make each bottle unique, while hand-lettering and labelling techniques from the early 20th century provide whisky lovers with a truly authentic re-creation of the whisky once enjoyed by Shackleton and his intrepid team.
