Forget the friggin frozen whiskey in Antarctica, there are 30 bottles of unopened 200 year old champagne in a shipwreck in the Baltic Sea. Sheez, the divers have already drunk a bottle (bastards) and say it is fantastic, tasting sweet with a hint of tobacco and oak. Hmm, it will be interesting to hear what the connoisseurs have to say. The divers discovered the champers in a shipwreck near the Aland Islands (somewhere between Sweden and Finland). If the alcohol proves to be from the 1780′s, it’s expected each bottle will sell for 50,000 Euros.
