Shackleton’s whiskey found in Antarctica

It’s not quite Megatron trapped beneath the ice of the frozen arctic, but it’s close.

The New Zealand Antarctic Researcher’s Trust believes it has unearthed several cases of a lost Scotch whiskey left behind by Earnest Shackleton, who abandoned his expedition to reach the South Pole in 1909 at Cape Royds, Antarctica.

A story in The Independent details how the three crates of whiskey and two cases of brandy have been unearthed nearly four years after they were discovered beneath Shackleton’s hut, which the New Zealand group is in the process of restoring.
