Shackleton's Whiskey: FOUND
So, three crates of Whiskey (and two bottles of Brandy) have been discovered beneath the floorboards of Ernest Shackleton's hut in Antarctica. You might remember when I wrote about Shackleton's ship (from a different one of his three attempts at reaching the North Pole) being frozen in the ice.
Interestingly, one of the big pluses from this find is that the company that originally made the whiskey is hoping to be able to reverse-engineer the recipe they used 100 years ago, which was apparently lost. Huh.
Anyway, that'd be a sweet birthday present, right?
