World’s Oldest Known Bottle Of Whiskey Could Pull $40K At Boston Auction


If you’re a whiskey fan with an extra $20K-$40K to spare, the world’s oldest known bottle of whiskey could be yours.

The Old Ingledew Whiskey, bottled in Georgia, is believed to be the oldest known whiskey in existence, according to Skinner. The auction, which is set for June 22-30 in Boston, is expected to fetch between $20,000-$40,000.

Lab testing suggests the whiskey was likely produced between 1762-1802, around the time of the Revolutionary War.

The bottle is thought to be the only surviving bottle of a trio from the cellar of J.P. Morgan, gifted in the 1940s to Washington power elite, according to Skinner's rare spirits expert, Joseph Hyman.
