Paranormal experience with an 1800 brand bottle of Tequila

About a year and a half ago my girlfriend and I bought a bottle of 1800 silver Tequila. The bottle is made out of a thick glass as is the lid. I am sure most are familiar with the design so I won't go into further detail. As we arrived home my girlfriend and I went into the kitchen. She removed the plastic wrap from around the lid and placed the bottle into the freezer (we like our Tequila chilled!) I was there and witnessed her put the bottle in the freezer. No more than 2 minutes after she closed the freezer door we both heard a loud pop and a thud. The pop sounded like when you open a champagne bottle. We immediately opened the freezer door to see that the lid was off and lying on the base of the freezer. We were startled but assumed there was a logical explanation for the incident. We drank and went on with our night.

For the next two to three months we bought several bottles of the same Tequila and stored it the same way without repeating the incident. Then one faithful night approximately three and a half months after the original incident we purchased another bottle. Again we both walked to the kitchen. This time I opened the bottle, and poured a drink for my girlfriend and I. On this occasion we were making Margaritas and the drink mix was already made and chilled in the fridge. So after pouring the Tequila in the glass I left the bottle out on the counter top knowing we would have more. We then both walked out of the kitchen, into the living room, and sat down on the couch to watch a movie. No more then five minutes pass and our movie is interrupted by a loud pop and a thud. I immediately run into the kitchen to find the top of the Tequila bottle lying on the counter top! The incident has not happened since.

So to recap. Bottle of 1800 Tequilas lid pops off after being placed into freezer for no more than two minutes. Months pass and nothing happens again. We buy another bottle and place it on the counter and minutes later the lid pops off.

What the heck. Did we have a Tequila drinking ghost? Is it just physics? I have Googled the incident and cannot find any reports of the same thing happening to anyone else. Has anyone on here experienced anything similar? I would really like to hear your stories.

LOL! We have moved since. I don't think it followed us. I better still watch out for my girl! I swear it was the weirdest thing ever.

Interesting story. I've expereienced spiritual things, but the only one that involved an object is when I was vacuuming the house. When I went past the cat food, I pushed it back up against the wood, then when I came back it was about a foot or two away from the spot by my kitchen table and kind of slanted, when I could have swore I backed it up straight against the wall before that. Who knows.

The spirit want's to enjoy your bottles as well.

Jumping to paranormal is probably way off-base.

I assume your bottle looked like this. Rubbery stopper with a glass top?

I would say you're seeing the effects of rapid change in temperature.

Is this a joke?

Out of curiosity why did your girlfriend take the plastic seal off prior to putting it in the freezer? It wasn't chilled yet and so needn't be unsealed yet.

Also why did you leave the tequila out and leave it on the kitchen top when you were enjoying your ice cold margaritas? Surely it would warm up then.

Removing the possibility that a certain batch of 1800 tequila got bottled with too much yeast still somehow in it which could cause for air expansion hence the bottle popping open I"d say you definitely have a Grey alien who can turn itself invisible and it has a penchant for tequila.

Damn you beat me to it, I'm not sure what temperature tequila will freeze at, if at all, but going from warm to a freezer is enough to cause a pressure difference. I assume the same thing with taking it from the freezer to the counter.

i was going to ask if this is a corked bottle or a twist top, corked and you already got your answer.

sorry, no ghost today

I'm not sure who this ties into 2012 but bet your ass someone will do it.

My ex-wife once had this same problem with a bottle of Crown Royal... I never had the heart to tell her that I'd opened the bottle and taken a quick swig before I brought it into the house!

Though, to be fair, I didn't think of ghosts as an excuse... If I'd have done so I might no be so woefully single now!

Just throwing out the possibility that the seal/vacuum had been previously broken.

Why would this be a joke? It was something that seemed above the normal to me. In my post I did acknowledge that it could be simple physics. I posted here to get opinions. Thanks for yours.

My girlfriend removed the plastic wrap because she has freaking OCD. Anytime we place something into the pantry, fridge, or freezer she opens it. For example with a box of granola bars she rips off the cardboard tabs to have easy access to it when it's needed. The same goes for everything else.

The only explanation I have for putting the bottle in the freezer one time and not the next is this; 1. The first time we were doing shots and we HATE warm Tequila shots so my girlfriend put it in the freezer to chill it. 2. The second time we were mixing and I was in charge of the bottle. I'm lazy. =)

I just thought it was weird because it happened once in the freezer and once at room temperature. It never happened with several bottles in between. As I stated though I'm sure there is a logical explanation to it. I just wanted to share a story and here peoples opinions.

Reminds me of something I experienced/posted about a few years ago, but I can't be too specific about it because the people who run ats like alcohol more than cannabis and this post would be deleted...

A few years back, when me and my friends were still pretty new to [...], two of them were up at my house, and we were pretty toasted.
One of them was shaking and slapping an unopened bottle of sobe the whole time we were watching a video, and when it was over me and the other friend went to my kitchen to make some food.

Then we heard a pop, a splash, and a blood curdling scream.

I'm not 100% sure how it happened but the little rubber seal under the lid of the sobe got sucked down into the neck of the bottle.
He finally opened the thing up and went to take a drink but nothing came out, so he looked down into it, when BAM it all exploded right into his eye.

It was all swollen and red for the next two days or so, and the funny thing was that the sobe was the kind with the lizard with boxing gloves on the front of it. I still have the bottle somewhere....

sorry if im pointing out the obvious but could it possibly have been your hungry kitty or do you keep cat food for some other unkown reason than feeding your cat

every liquid freezes phishybongpipe, also a random fact here is that hydrogen or helium(sorry cant remember which one exactly) will flow uphill when chilled to a liquid form.

One time about 12 or 13 years ago my buddies and I were in my back yard with a big ol bottle of jim beam.

It was sitting on the table about 4-5 feet from where we were sitting. Each of us in a lawn chair.

Suddenly as we were chatting, the bottle jumped about 2 inches.

No one's legs were anywhere near the table.

There was a wet circle where the bottle was prior.

It jumped 2 inches. No joke.

We were freaking out. It was so awesome.

Yeah I mean I am not saying it was a "ghost" that caused the incidents. I'm most sure there is a logical explanation to the situation. However to me it is above the normal because it happened once while only in the freezer for minutes. Once at room temperature. Not to mention several times in between the two times it did happen, nothing happened.
