Whiskey Of Ernest Shackleton May Be Rescued From Antarctica

November 17, 2009

Antarctica (ChattahBox) – Two cases of whiskey belonging to infamous explorer Ernest Shackleton has peaked the interest of researchers, who have petitioned for permission to drill down to the liquor.

Sir Ernest Shackleton had the Scotch delivered to him as a part of his 1907-1909 expedition, and it has been there under the ice ever since.

Researchers hope to get permission to use a special drill to push through the ice to get to the cases of bottles.

In addition, Mackinlay and Co. have asked for a sample of the whiskey, as it is of a brand no longer offered by the manufacturer. They hope to run tests to see whether or not they should bring it back.

“I really hope we can get some back here,” Richard Paterson of Whyte & Mackay said.

“It’s been laying there lonely and neglected. It should come back to Scotland where it was born.”

So far, it is believed that they will be able to take some of the bottles, and leave the rest.

    How high is the peak of their interest? Or did you perhaps mean “piqued?”

    I’m getting totally fed up with semi-literate bloggers who misuse common words because they’ve never bothered to read the printed word and thus have no idea which homonym is proper for the context of their blogs.
