A Georgian woman who claimed to have been born in 1880 has passed away, supposedly at the age of 132, according to The Independent.The woman, Antisa Khvichava, reportedly had a Soviet-era passport stating her age. But it was never verified, and Guinness World Records lists 116-year-old Besse Cooper as the world’s oldest person.
According to The Independent, Khvichava lived in the remote village of Sachino in northwestern Georgia with her 42-year-old grandson, and claimed to have retired from her job as a tea and corn picker in 1965, when she was 85.
She reportedly had 12 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren, and had one of her sons at the age of 60.
Her secret to longevity? Drinking a little local brandy every day, according to The Daily Mail.
