View Full Version : Seagram's Benchmark Bourbon
Hi everyone! My mom gave me a bottle of Seagrams Kentucky Bourbon. How can I tell how old it is? It is still sealed with the reddish label on the cap. Thanks!
That depends upon a couple of factors. First, what is the size of the bottle? Is it metric or standard? The red stip across the top, does it have a nine digit number on it?
Seagrams Kentucky plant is not currently in use. I couldn't tell you when itceased operation, but I am sure that someone will stop in and give a more definate answer here.
the nine digits on the label are 576615855 and it is says 4/5 quart on the lower left of the bottle. Thanks!
The best that I can tell you is that it is an early eighties or prior bottling.
4/5 quart bottle makes it pre 1-1-1980. As that is the date metric took over.
The UPC was developed in 1973 (first scanned in retail in 1974), so it's somewhere in between those dates.
Thanks you guys, this helps!
