Century old Antarctic whisky found
WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) - July 22, 2010 -- It's aged Scotch -- on ice.
Experts at a New Zealand museum are slowly thawing a crate of Scotch whisky that has been frozen in Antarctic ice for more than a century.
The booze was found under a hut built by British explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton, during his 1908 expedition. But when the Scotch is defrosted, it won't be sipped.
Scottish distillery Whyte and Mackay picked up the tab to recover the whisky.
It's hoped there will be enough to analyze and duplicate the now defunct Mackinlay's brand.
