New Jersey museum discovers 221-year-old wine in its cellar


11 - jul - 17

Liberty Hall Museum, one of the country’s National Historic Landmarks, has discovered a few bottles of wine that date back to 1796. The discovery was made when the museum was being renovated, reports Travelandleisure.com.

According to the report, three cases of Madeira wine from 1796 and 42 demijohns from the 1820s were found hidden in the cellars. "We knew there was a lot of liquor down here, but we had no idea as to the age of it,” said John Kean, the president of the museum.

It is believed that the wine was shipped down to New Jersey to celebrate John Adams’ inauguration as the second president of the United States. It however was left unopened and got lost in the museum’s vast wine cellar.

The Rare Wine Company, a firm based in California, tested the wine and deemed it drinkable. There is considerable excitement about the wine, given its age and consumable status. While the museum has stated that this presently is the largest collection of Madeira, a drink popular in the 1800s, it has not stated the price of the bottles.
