My mother-in-law just gave me vodka, gin, etc. which she's had for at least 30 years. Some opened, some not. Are they still good to drink? Would they lose their potency if opened? Any thoughts?

    Thanks, JMF! Now I feel better, especially since my husband has started hitting the 100 proof vodka! :)

      Here's a thread on this from a few weeks ago.
