Shackleton's Whisky Recovered

The New Zealand Antarctic Heritage Trust is restoring the shack used by explorer Ernest Shackleton during his Anarctic expedition of 1907-1909. In 2006 they discovered two cases of whisky, but only recently have they been able to free those crates from the ice. Then they discovered another case of whisky and two crates of brandy! Although the crates and most of the contents must remain with the historical site, a sample of the whisky will be retrieved for the distiller.
Richard Paterson, master blender at Whyte & Mackay, whose company supplied the Mackinlay's whisky for Shackleton, described the find as "a gift from the heavens for whisky lovers".

He added: "If the contents can be confirmed, safely extracted and analysed, the original blend may be able to be replicated. Given the original recipe no longer exists, this may open a door into history. -via Arbroath, where'll you'll find a video report.

Well, that's wise thing to do considering that he's been hearing voice; I want to believe that must be God directing his steps in uprightness. You know what? besides God, giving out everything won't give him happiness either.

Charity? fine but there are lot of individuals who equally need some help.

I'll appreciate it if I can a bit of it to help solve some needs, please.
