Bid on two bottles of seriously rare hooch from the bottom of the sea

A bottle of shipwrecked whisky

Discovered back in 1987 by a pro diver, these two bottles of hooch now up for auction were at the bottom of the sea along with the SS Politician, a ship bound for Jamaica that went down off the Western coast of Scotland in 1941 with a cargo of 28,000 (!) bottles in total. The bulk of others on board were either salvaged back then by thirsty locals or destroyed, leaving only a handful left to be found.Image: LiverpoolDailyPost.uk
