Why an Almost 110-Year-Old Used to Swear by Beers and a Shot a Day

Jul 31, 2015

Agnes Fenton, who turns 110 Saturday, admitted that she has had to give up Miller High Life and Johnnie Walker Blue in the walk-up to her birthday, she told The Record.

In 2010, she said that, since 1943, she has been drinking "three cans of Miller High Life a day and a shot of good booze at 5 p.m." What kind of good booze? Johnnie Walker Blue. In what sounds like a joke or a tall tale, she has told journalists that a doctor said she could drink three beers a day after a tumor she once developed ended up being benign.

Nowadays, the paper reports that she can't drink that much anymore since her appetite has decreased, so that means we should take shot of Johnnie Walker Blue for her (but drink responsibly, of course).
