This will surely make all you Jack Daniels drinkers out there angry.
Apparently, because of all those funky liquor laws that we all know and tolerate, a whole bunch of valuable, antique Jack might be dumped down the drain. Authorities think someone was selling the liquor without a license- a big no no- and the law in Tennessee requires that if it can’t be sold legally, it has to be destroyed.
Someone estimated the value of the alcohol, or maybe the bottles themselves, at a million bucks. Some of the bottles are nearly a hundred years old, some with unbroken seals.
I don’t know what’s more amazing to me- the fact that someone has managed to hold on to whiskey for this long without breaking the seal and enjoying it, or that there are people out there who are willing to pay thousands of dollars for a bottle of it to sit on a shelf and collect dust.
I think we need to check out the
dungeon basement and see if any ancient bottles of spirits are hiding out down there with our ghost. Any volunteers?
