Shackleton Whisky takes its name from polar explorer Ernest Shackleton, whose mission to first reach the South Pole in 1907 is now the stuff of legend. Inspired by adventure and the result of years of fine-tuning, this is a premium blended malt scotch that's bold, rich and imbued with a whisper of smoke.

Created to honour the whisky that was discovered frozen under Shackleton's hut a century after his 1907 expedition, this spirit is a taste of adventure.

It was this whisky that brought Sir Ernest and his crew together to toast wives and sweethearts, celebrate birthdays and above all foster a sense of team spirit that led them to succeed against the toughest odds in the harshest environments on the planet.

As well as a 70cl bottle of this exquisitely crafted whisky, we are also giving away the following set of gear to help you on your next adventure, whether it's to the depths of Antarctica or somewhere nearer home.

The prizes includes: a GoPro Hero Session – a super-compact action cam that's capable of delivering professional-level video in crisp 1440p – as well as a copy of South, the first hand account of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s pioneering polar expedition and a pair of enamel Shackleton mugs to help you enjoy the whisky.
