I've got a Bud Ice from 1991, does that count?

/seriously do, it was part of the first six pack of beer I ever (legally) bought
//Shame it's such a shiat beer, but we thought Bud Ice was cool back then.

Jacques Cousteau's crew dove on a roman trireme that sank in the Med around the time of the destruction
of Pompeii (79 AD) and found several still-sealed jars of wine.

They opened one (they were French, after all), and said that it was still quite drinkable.

I've got some 4-year old homebrew in bottles in the basement.  What would they go for at Lloyd's of London?  I could spare a few of them if the price is right.

Someone please tell me I'm not the only one who saw that 100-year-old Coke and thought it was jenkem.

I've got a mason jar full of something clear that smells like honeydew and doom. Don't know how old it is, but I wouldn't have an open flame in the same room with it.

Hmm. Out of curiosity, I went to the basement and brought up a bottle of Schenley, 8 year old O.F.C. Canadian Whiskey. If you look on the back it says OFC Canadian Whiskey, Certified Prime, distilled Sept '72, and bottled in Sept, 1980. Then a serial number M 331635.

I don't drink. I'll pass this along to my grandkids.

After reading about it, I desperately wanted to drink Sir Ernest Shackleton's Whisky.  It seemed like the holy grail of old boozes.  But then you wonder, if it was so great how could they have left three cases of it behind?

CSB: My dad has an unopened bottle of Pinch scotch he bought in the late 50's. Guess I will inherit it since he won't open it.

I have a pint bottle of rye bottled during prohibition. It is labeled For medicinal use only.

Aluminum seal cap intact.

Box only missing one (maybe two) flap(s)>
