World’s oldest man celebrates his 113th birthday in Venezuela


The world’s oldest man has celebrated his 113th birthday in Venezuela and has thanked drinking a glass of sugarcane hooch everyday as the reason for his long life.

Juan Vicente Mora reached the milestone on Friday, May 27, less than two weeks after he was officially declared the oldest male in the world by Guinness World Records.

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.

He said he starts every day with a cup of coffee, while also drinking a glass of aguardiente, which is a liquor made from sugarcane.
