Britain's Oldest Twins Say "Guinness Every Night" Is The Secret To a Long Life

"We got no rheumatism, arthritis... We can't grasp that we are 102 because we don't feel it"

Guinness Twins

Britain's Oldest twins have thanked the black stuff for their longevity.

We always knew our lifeblood, Guinness was the elixir of a long and happy life, and it seems the Brits are copping on.

Phyllis Jones and Irene Crump, both 102, have said the secret to a long life is a Guinness "every night".

Phyllis told Caters News:

"I used to love a drink. I enjoy a drink of anybody."

Irene added: "I don't like one drink, I like two or three. I used to love a Guinness. Every night I had a Guinness."

The pair were born in 1916, and have seen 20 prime ministers, four reigning monarchs and two world wars.

Irene said they don't feel their age:

"We can't grasp that we are 102 because we don't feel it," she said. "We got no rheumatism, arthritis, I mean, we're very lucky in that way."

The pair celebrated their 102nd birthday on Nov 20, surrounded by family.

Cheers to that.
