The Oldest Whiskey Existing on the Planet Is Going to Be Sold at Auction Soon
The oldest in the world bottle of whiskey can be yours if you are ready to spend thousands of dollars. The whiskey was bottled at LaGrange in Georgia. And according to the data, the Old Ingledew Whiskey is considered the oldest whiskey existing on the planet. That is why on this occasion it was decided to hold an auction.
The auction that will take place online, happens on June 22-30. Rates are expected to range between 20,000 and 40,000 dollars. According to official information and some analyses carried out, bourbon was possibly produced between 1762-1802 years. This happened during the Revolutionary War and at the moment of the Whiskey Uprising. However, the place where it was produced is still unknown.
Experts also say the whiskey is considered the only surviving bottle of three, donated to Washington's elite in the 1940s. It is believed that John Pierpont Morgan, who was working as the financier, bought the bottle during one of his visits to Georgia. Later, Jack Morgan donated the bottle during the auction to James Byrnes from South Carolina in the early 1940s. And Byrnes, in turn, presented the bottle to his neighbor, whose family had kept the bottle for three generations. The other two bottles were never found.
While this may be the oldest whiskey bottle, it is not the most expensive one. In 2019, the Macallan Fine and Rare dated to 1926, was called the most expensive bottle of spirits and was auctioned for 1.9 million dollars.
