"...There he met his contact, Caroline Debbané, who took him not through the front door but around to the back of the property. There, a modern lock code opened the swinging cellar doors, and the two descended a flight of concrete steps to the bunker.
One entire wall had built-in wine turrets, with dusty bottles of wine and champagne lying on their side. Another wall acted as a liquor cabinet, with more bottles of bourbon, Irish whiskey and rum, untouched for over a half century. Mr. Ackerman had found the booze collection of Cecil B. DeMille, the legendary director and producer."


Sounds like Ms Debbané is the one who found it.

After they kicked him out of Poison, I would have guessed that he'd have drank it all.

I have a 1970's vintage bottle of Canada Dry Club Soda in the basement.

Any offers?
