Hi all,

Just came across this old bottle of Benedictine and was wondering if anyone my have an idea what the age and approximate value might be? We've had it sitting in our cabinet with a few other bottles for over 20 years. I believe it came from my father-in-laws house just after his passing. Have no idea how long he had it. I'd appreciate any help you may be able to give. Somehow my photos are not getting posted, but the bottle is wrapped in an old tissue paper wrapper and it has the word Veritable written on it.
Thank you,
Mike

Benedictine is all the same regardless of its date of bottling. Spirits neither improve or deteriorate after bottling. Veritable simply means true. There have been many attempts to counterfeit or replicate it. It has no value beyond its worth as something good to drink.

Thank you very much for your response. The wrapping looks so interesting, I believe we'll just keep it that way. I enjoy my occasional late afternoon scotch on the rocks.

All my best,
Mike
