Ernest Shackleton is one of the iconic figures of the 'Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration'.
His expeditions and personality have left an indelible mark on the icy plains of Antarctica and in our conscience.
Recently archaeologists unearthed an unusual legacy - his secret stash of whisky! His booze was found under the hut he built over 100 years ago, during his greatest expedition, Nimrod.
