I met up with Richard Paterson of Whyte & Mackay at Boston’s Federal Wine & Spirits just as the news came from New Zealand that scientists will thaw out one of the cases of whisky found at Sir Ernest Shackleton’s camp in Antarctica. Richard shares his hopes for the whisky inside that case, along with news on new bottlings from The Dalmore and Isle of Jura, and his unique tale of the history of Scotch whisky. We’ll also touch base with Federal’s Joe Howell on the business of selling whisky, and taste two Dalmores…one old and one new.
