Scotch on the Rocks, part 2

Remember that Shackleton story a few months ago? How they were going to drill 200 kms outside the South Pole to recover some of Shackleton's buried Scotch Whiskey? Well, it looks like they got it. Along with a little extra brandy.

Richard Paterson, whose firm supplied the Mackinlay's whisky for Shackleton, said: "If the contents can be confirmed, safely extracted and analysed, the original blend may be able to be replicated.

"Given the original recipe no longer exists this may open a door into history."

The alcohol was removed from the ice by the New Zealand Antarctic Heritage Trust, which had initially believed there to be just two crates.

This is gonna soon be marketed to high hell, and I will buy some.
