How long can bottled brew keep for?

    I usually brew the same drink (Mangrove Jack apple cider).
    I bottle it in swing top bottles and leave it for around 3 weeks then I usually I drink it within 3 to 4 weeks.

    I have a friend who is thinking of taking up brewing and he is bombarding me with questions. I have answered most of them but this one has got me stumped.

    Once the cider has been bottled, how long can it be left before it has to be drank?

    I have never had a batch last longer than 5 weeks tops, so I am not quite sure what answer to give him.
