Dang...didn't follow my links, right?? :-) They weren't 'scavengers' --
"A team of New Zealand explorers heading out in January has
been asked by Whyte & Mackay, the company that now owns
Mackinlay and Co, to get a sample of the drink."
"Two crates were initially found by explorers in 2006 but it proved
too difficult to dislodge the ice that had been surrounding them
for over a hundred years. Now a team of explorers have been
sent out by whisky makers Whyte & Mackay to retrieve samples
from the bottles, with the aim of recreating the blend."
