There may well be a long-lost chapter of the League of Gentlemen Adventurers in Sweden.
Recently a team of adventurers was diving in the Baltic Sea, off the coast of Sweden, and while exploring a shipwreck, they discovered bottles of champagne that are over 200 years old. By far the oldest ever found, and, according to one estimate, worth almost $70,000 each.
Now, that is certainly an adventure, but it’s not why I believe LGA members may have been present. This is why:
The first thing they did when they got back onto the boat was to pop one open and drink it.
Mr. Ekstrom & co., today I raise my glass to you and say, Quam bene vivas refert, non quam diu. You embody the spirit of Gentleman Adventuring.
And, gentle reader, I ask you: were you on that boat, wouldn’t you have done the same?
