100-year-old Scotch pulled from frozen crate

In this undated photo provided by Antarctic Heritage Trust via the Canterbury Museum, a whisky crate is stored beneath the floor of a hut built by British explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton during his 1908 Antarctic expedition. The crate of Scotch whisky that has been frozen in Antarctic ice for more than a century is being slowly thawed by New Zealand museum officials, for analysis not to be tasted.
