I’ve heard they’re good for 30 years across the pond. But, I have no proof of this. 
There are 30 year bottles available in the states but, they cost twice as much. They also go through a different testing process at their 15th year, which has a good chance of taking them out of service, on top of the normal hydro every 5 years. I got this info from talking with “Bob”.
In my opinion, it’s not worth it.
