One of Britain’s oldest women, who celebrated her 110th birthday today, revealed the secret to her long life is, well, it’s whisky.

Grace Jones, known to her friends as ‘Amazing Grace’, is the 10th oldest person in the UK.

She said her longevity is down to having had a night-cap of Famous Grouse single malt whisky every evening for the last 60 years.

The mother-of-one, who lives in Broadway, Worcs., said: ‘I never miss my night cap. All I have is the whisky at night.

‘Whisky is very good for you. I started having a nightly tot of it when I turned 50 so I’ve been having it every night for the last 60 years and I certainly have no intention of stopping now.’

She added: ‘My doctor said “keep up with the whisky Grace, it’s good for your heart”.

Life is like a penny, you can spend it on what you like, but you can ONLY spend it once.

A top shelf drink once a day is always good for you. Another that is good is a stout the likes of Guinness is also very good for you as you get older and highly recommended by doctors.

I`ve been running my own research on this subject for many years now spanning many countries all over the world, and so far I feel great, except for the odd hangovers.

More and more studies are pointing to having a small drink before bedtime. I just read an article suggesting two glasses of wine at night will also help to lose weight.

As for the Famous Grouse whiskey blend:

Quote:The blend is matured in oak casks for up to six months at 46% ABV.

It must taste lovely.

My grandmother was Irish, drank whiskey and smoked unfiltered cigarettes: she lived to her 100th year. And I mean *lived*. She moved to a sheltered housing complex when she was nearly 70 and her husband died, then left because the people there were all boring old farts, so she took up travelling instead. She was full of energy, and still writing me interesting, articulate letters just months before her 100th birthday.
Slainte!

probably..

but drinkin 5 beers a couple times a week doesnt count of course.

It's the hops

I love a good ale, not just ipa. Even our local corner store retails some nice local and foreign local brews these days.

orgazmo3.gif jr said he never that level of service at any store in the world that we got when we moved here to this rough gem of a town. The guy who owns the corner store is also a butcher so he buys and cuts local meat. It's the best. Restaurants buy from him.

He also has an impressive selection of specialty beer and can tell you personally how they taste and what they would go well with.

5 out of 5 bacons
