Whiskey is poured into a glass

You could be the owner of the oldest known bottle of whiskey in the world. But it’s not gonna be cheap!

 

The “Oldest currently known whiskey bottle,” according to Skinner Auctioneers, is being auctioned off from June 22 to 30, and is estimated to land at a price from $20,000 to $40,000.  

 

The bottle is an Old Ingledew Whiskey marked with a label from “Evans & Ragland in La Grange, Georgia.” A typed note on the back of the bottle reads, “This Bourbon was probably made prior to 1865.” 

The bottle has been owned by billionaires, supreme court justices and even presidents. 

 

Scientists actually believe the bottle dates back to around the time of the Revolutionary War. Imagine getting drunk on something that George Washington could have drunk!

To calculate this figure, scientists poured commercial lagers into tilted glasses and measured the carbon dioxide that was dissolved into them just moments later. After observing that bubbles would form where this dissolved gas gathered, they calculated just how many bubbles would form, a number that depends on the amount of crevices in the specific glass.

The main takeaway? The more imperfections or dings in a glass, the more bubbles will form.  So if you notice that your local dive bar’s brews are tasting extra bubbly, it may have to do with the wear and tear on their glasses.
