(Newser) – Assuming polar bears haven't guzzled it, a case of Canadian Club whisky stashed near the North Pole decades ago is still waiting for an adventure-seeking drinker to find it. The company has revived the "Hide-a-Case" promotion it began in 1967, and is offering drinkers a chance to join expeditions to uncover the still-missing 6 of the original 25 cases hidden in exotic locations around the world, Asylum reports.

You can sign up for a chance to be one of eight chosen to go on the Canadian Club-led quest at Hide a Case, which happens to also have the original magazine ads that contained clues to the cases' locations, should you want to embark on a solo booze hunt. Other cases are waiting in locales including the Yukon, Fiji, and Loch Ness.
