GPA crafted the innovative pack for this blended whisky, which contains a single malt that has travelled to the South Pole!
Between 2016 and 2018 Ardgowan distillery was involved in an unusual project involving polar explorer Robert Swan and his son Barney. The founding members of Ardgowan helped Swan to develop a zero-carbon device that he could use to melt snow and create drinking water during his trek, without impacting the surrounding environment.
In return, Swan carried a bottle of aged Ardgowan single malt with him on his journey. When he got back this well-travelled whisky was combined with other malts to create a commemorative blend named Expedition. Only 600 bottles of this exceptional whisky exist – one for each mile that Swan and his son walked to reach the South Pole.
