100 Year Old Whiskey Found In Attic
A Missouri man definitely has something to toast to, the discovery of century-old whiskey under the floor boards of his attic.
While putting in wiring for a new central air system Bryan Fite found 13 bottles of 100 year old whiskey. He believes the bottles were part of a secret stash by the house’s alcoholic former owner.
All the whiskey is pre-prohibition, bottled in 1917 and distilled between 1912 and 1913. The stash includes 4 bottles of Hellman’s Celebrated Old Crow whiskey, a few bottles of Guckenheimer, Pennsylvania rye whiskey and W. H. McBrayer’s Cedar Brook whiskey.
In case you were thinking of making an offer to Fite for the collection he’s not interested. He plans on opening the bottles in 5 years when they all turn 100.
“Part of the allure for me is having them in their original state,” said Fite to ABC News. “I have high expectations of what they’ll taste like, and I’m afraid if I open them I’ll be disappointed.”
It looks like it’s a 50-50 chance, the whiskey could turn out to be amazing or a complete dud. Only time will tell.
