BREAKING: Shackleton’s booze recovered

Ernest Shackleton

"Mind your P's and Q's, 'gents"

In what’s being hailed as a “gift from heaven,” two crates of brandy and three crates of whisky belonging to the late British explorer Ernest Shackleton have been recovered from the south pole.

Whisky lovers may be in for a treat if chemists can determine the original Mackinlay’s blend from the recovered crates.

Will Shackleton, best known for heroically delivering every member of his crew in a failed bid for the south pole in 1907, now become better known for his gift to booze hounds everywhere? Time will tell.
