The Guinness Book of World Records has updated its list of the oldest male living on Earth. Juan Vicente Pérez from Venezuela turned 113 on May 27.
His secret to his longevity is simple: a glass of sugarcane hooch each day. Does he like it neat? Well, apparently yes. Not only has Yuan touched the 113 mark, his exceptional health and memory has been a reason for studies. But this Venezuelan senior credits it all to the hooch.
Hooch, for the uninitiated, refers to country liquor, made by crude methods of fermentation. Interestingly, sugarcane is used to produce distilled spirits such as vodka, bitters, and liqueurs. On the more tropical side, sugarcane alcohol is also commonly used in the production of rum and caçhaca. Sugarcane spirit is a base spirit ideal for the industrial alcohol production.
Mora, who has an incredible 41 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren and 12 great-great-grandchildren says the secret to his longevity is due to local alcoholic drink. His day starts with a cup of coffee, while also drinking a glass of aguardiente, which is a liquor made from sugarcane.
