So, how old is your drink of choice?

At least in the hard liquor world, my alcohol of choice–gin–is a mere 353 years old. Amusingly, a google search for ??franciscus la boie gin?? will find, among other things “an annotation from Pynchon’s ??Gravity’s Rainbow??”: (look under “oude genever”).

I know I don’t drink as much of it as Russians do vodka, which “celebrates its 500th anniversary”:
