"I saw an ad for Unique(I think), where the factory has kept it in a container of water for almost a 100 years and when tested it still worked fine."

Probably Bullseye.

Bullseye has been in production since the very late 1800s, IIRC. It was one of the first non-bulk smokeless powders suitable for use in a wide range of handgun cartridges.

Unique has been with us since just after WW I.
