Century-old Whiskey Found in the Antarctic

Posted: February 9, 2010 in Miscellaneous

One of the highlights of my day as I journey through the treacherous seas of the educational world are the emails I get from my wonderful wife. And something I love about my wife is her thoughtfulness. Occasionally, she finds things on the web that she knows I would find interesting and she sends them to me. Here is one of those things: Century-old Whiskey Found in the Antarctic:

WELLINGTON, New Zealand – This Scotch has been on the rocks for a century.

Five crates of Scotch whisky and two of brandy have been recovered by a team restoring an Antarctic hut used more than 100 years ago by famed polar explorer Ernest Shackleton.

Ice cracked some of the bottles that had been left there in 1909, but the restorers said Friday they are confident the five crates contain intact bottles “given liquid can be heard when the crates are moved.”

I’ve been very interested in Shackleton for awhile now and found this very interesting. Thanks my love!
