Last night I was helping my uncle load up some things from his house. As we were carrying a large load up the basement steps I noticed something pigeon holed under one of the steps.
When we got back to the steps and removed the object we both were pleasantly suprised. Wrapped in an old brown paper bag was a bottle of Seagram 7, that my Uncle knew nothing about.
My Uncle has lived in this house for 40 years, it was not his nor my grandmother’s, we are uncertain of how old this stuff actually is, there is no know on the date anywhere.
All we really know is that it is at least 40 years old, has been kept in a paper bag in a dark cool space for those 40 + years.
After a small sample, I now know that 45+ year old Seagram 7 is extremely SMOOTHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.
I live several miles from the Lawrenceburg, IN Seagrams distillery, and have placed a call to them asking how to identify the age of the bottle. Hopefully They will be able to tell me.
As for now the bottle has a new home, in the bottom of my safe, where it will be kept cool and dry for years and years to come.
