Description
Much of Ernest Shackleton's fame rests upon his heroic actions during a failed 1914–17 expedition to the South Pole, but the veteran explorer had come south seven years earlier. Rarely did Shackleton consume strong drink, but on this 1907 voyage he permitted 300 bottles of Old Highland Malt Whisky to be brought aboard. Here New Zealand journalist Neville Peat relates how three cases of liquor were forgotten beneath Shackleton's hut in the McMurdo Sound region, only to be uncovered in 2007. A history of Shackleton's first Antarctic expedition as well as a look at the craft and lore behind Scotland's finest dram, this book includes more than 50 pages of archival images and contemporary photos in color.
