About This Competition

Just 1,212 bottles of this special edition have been released – and after being too slow to purchase online, I was super lucky to have an pal in Kirkwall go to the distillery shop & buy THE last bottle on sale…..phew.

This release celebrates the life of John Rae – the legendary Arctic explorer from Orkney. Master Whisky Maker, Gordon Motion, selected predominantly ex-bourbon and refill casks, with smaller quantities of hallmark sherry seasoned American and European oak casks, to deliver a deliciously bold and complex flavour profile of toasted vanilla, caramelised grapefruit and honeyed peat smoke.

John Rae solved the two great mysteries of 19th-century Arctic exploration – the fate of the Franklin expedition and the final link in the Northwest Passage. His ability to cope with the harsh Arctic climate was remarkable. He would walk on snowshoes fifty miles and more in a day, travelling when needed through darkness and snowstorms. He made long journeys, going on one occasion over a thousand miles on foot, and at another time close to 1,400 miles by small boat, during which time he charted over 600 miles of unexplored coastline.

There are 20 early bird bonus tickets up for grabs. Simply add a minimum of 2 John Rae tickets to your cart & use code EXPLORER17 at checkout.
