Whisky galore

Whisky Galore is one my favourite black and white films. However the link is only tangential. Researchers are going to dig up two crates of Shackleton's whisky from his hut in the Antarctic o be restored and replaced. Museum conditions can be harsh, but this must be exceptional! White and Mackay are keen to get a sample and recreate this now long-forgotten blend. Historical drinkies? We'll drink to that. More at the BBC.
