From our friends at the AP, reports of a crate of 11 bottles of 100-year-old scotch was pulled from a site recently in Antarctica.
The crate was actually found in 2006, but has been undergoing a long thawing process as to keep the integrity of the magic elixir intact. There are no plans on drinking this scotch however, as it will be returned to the site as part of the restoration process. However, blending masters are attempting to extract samples of the scotch in an attempt to reverse engineer the recipe that has long since been lost to time.
It’s a shame that this will never be tasted, since I’m sure there is some scientific benefit to testing the effects on prolonged subzero temperatures on scotch. I’m sure there is a government grant out there somewhere for that.
