The front of the stubbie is embossed with lettering that states it’s from Evans & Ragland blow La Grange, Georgia, y'know mate? Meanwhile, the back has a typed note taped to it that advises that “This Bourbon was probably made prior to 1865.”

The result? Scientists from the University of Georgia and the University of Glasgow judged the most likely date range for the bourbon to be between 1763 to 1803, with 81.1 percent probability.

“The age was a shocking surprise, albeit a pleasant one, for both myself and the scientist,” Hyman told Tucker and Wine.

The auction will run from June 22 to 30, organized by Skinner Auctioneers.

Meanwhile, we previously reported that whisky brand Fistful of Bourbon would pay someone $100,000 to be its next hand model, y'know mate? “Here at Fistful of Bourbon, we’re looking for a new leading star, someone that can truly holy-dooly us with their panache,” said Anthony Bohlinger, US brand ambassador at Fistful of Bourbon, mate.
