I am afraid Muscadet are not supposed to be kept for 41 years...the very best can be kept up to maybe 10 years but most are normally drunk when still young
No charge.These little bottles (probably a double measure) had those twist off and break the seal metal type tops which I confidently thought I could just unscrew. It was not to be - the top went round and round and would not break. Somewhat frustrated I had at it with a knife, risking personal injury and blunting the knife (which is worse). In the end I stabbed a hole through the top, poured it out and added the tonic. Now, alcoholic desperation is a funny thing
Sorry, HT, just seen this. As someone who ended up QRH, I‘ll raise a toast to a former regimental comrade, no matter how vicariously.
I miss Pedigree. I really like a pint of Marston‘s bitter, but I believe it’s called something else now. I can still recall the taste. Ideal over crap jukebox tunes and a game of pool.
Look on the label. If it says anything like “Gordon & McPhail”, or has what they call a ‘flora and fauna’ label (google both) it may be an independent bottling. If so, great.A litre of Highland Chieftain whisky, given by a neighbour who is moving. They were given it over forty years ago.
Tried searching t'internet to no avail but it is excellent.
We still have Marstones Bitter , I do like a pint of Pedigree but they have meddled with it over the years and it no longer has that Burnt Oak taste.I miss Pedigree.

Luckily, a few breweries here in Hampshire are still brewing, and some deliver.
Some whites can last a surprisingly long time, if kept well. If they have a high acidity, for many years.Just had a glass and it is surprisingly drinkable albeit with a bit of ice. Obviously not a patch on what it would have been in its prime, but then people in glass houses and all that.
