The Ardgowan Distillery has lent its technical knowhow to a duo of Antarctic explorers.

Father and son team Robert and Barney Swan are hoping to be the first people to reach the South Pole entirely powered by renewable energy.

The Lowland distillery has created a system to ensure the pair have a constant supply of fresh drinking water throughout their expedition.

The Scotch whisky maker also sent the explorers off with two bottles of 20-year-old single malt, one to be enjoyed by the pair on Hogmanay and the other to be brought back to Scotland to be released as a commemorative bottling.
