The oldest known whiskey is going up for auction soon with an attached price tag of $10,000. The Old Ingledew Whiskey is being auctioned by Skinner who says it’s the oldest known whiskey and was likely produced somewhere between 1762-1802. The auction is taking place for June 22-30 and bids are expected to end up being between $20,000 to $40,000. Joseph Hyman, a rare spirits expert for Skinner said the whiskey, “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.” The whiskey is believed to have been bottled in LaGrange during the 1860s and has been kept by a family for three generations.
