We have a lot of mulled wine and mulled cider bottles in the garage that have use by dates in summer 2012.
Would you bin it or drink it?

If it was use by I would bin it but if it was best before I would taste it and consider it. I often igmore best before dates by not use by.

It's only spices isn't it? I'd think it would be fine

You see that's what I thought Missus S. It's just spices?! I can't understand why it would have a specific use by date though and not just best before...

I would go with a taste test!

I might open one while we do the decs on Tuesday and see. Not that I can have much but a small glass would be nice!!

Spices have use by dates but they can't hurt you they just lose flavour (I think) and going by the theory wine gets better with age I'd def have a sniff see what it's like

out of date alcohol?? I'm with MissusS though, give it a try and see - I use spices that are by their best before date, never done us any harm. get your H to try it out first though, just in case

I'd get your H to try and, and if he says it's ok then drink it. I don't believe alcohol goes out of date, it just matures.
