Shackleton's Whisky

Left behind in 1907 during Shackleton's failed attempt to reach the South Pole, it was found under the floorboards of the hut built by the expedition.

After all these decades, it's unlikely to be drinkable, especially if the corks have deteriorated. According to the article it's considered an artifact and not supposed to be taken from Antarctica, but where there's a will there's a way, as the saying goes.
