Oldest Known Bottle of Whiskey To be Auctioned


A 250-year-old bottle of whiskey, thought to be the oldest known whiskey in existence, is hitting the auction block at the end of June. The Old Ingledew Whiskey bottle reads that it's from Evans & Ragland in La Grange, Georgia. A note attached to the bottle reads "This bourbon was probably made prior to 1865 Skinner Auctioneers used a needle to extract a small sample for testing; the University of Georgia says the whiskey was bottled sometime between 1763 to 1803. The auction house believes it will get between $20,000 and $40,000 from the sale of the whiskey.
