was a real test of his skills.

Paterson spent eight weeks analysing the 100-year-old whisky which was discovered beneath the Antarctic ice.

Richard said that recreating the special whisky was a true “labour of love”.

He said in a statement: “It was a real privilege getting to handle, nose and taste such a rare and beautiful bottle of whisky.

“The quality, purity and taste of this 100-year-old spirit was amazing.

“The biggest surprise was the light flavour and the clear, almost vibrant colour of the liquid.”

He added: “I hope I have done our forefathers and Ernest Shackleton proud with the replica.”
