    How long can we store liquor at home ???

    Is that a trick question? It depends on how many drunk addicts lives in the house!. heheh.

    I know of a closet drunk (wife) anything liquor you put in that house, it days it disappear. She blame from kids to maid to friends popping by as the culprit when the husband ask heheh...

    I have a few in my house like 15 yrs now and opened one that's has been transferred to special liquor cystal bottles and they all are in fine shape. Evaporation can happen but it depend on how you keep them.

    As for fermentation type drinks like Wine and Champagne (whiskey, brandy for example of liquor are distilled drinks) ...not possible to last. Open ....then best to consume in 24 hours or less. The moment you uncork it it should be consume as it retains all the optimum quality of aroma, taste, acidity, (bubblies as with champagne)...etc. Within hours if left in to air, alot of it's quality will have gone flat.

    I would not call myself a drinker lah. I have gone without drinking one cup for years even. I do drink socially now and again even at home and I can hold my liquor/wine cause i drink within my limits....or I should say mainly wines as I am more an appreciator of wines.

    I am usually the "liquor police" with my group of friends. Once they drive too much...I start taking away car keys. Had two friends who got into vehicle accidents from driving. Almost died from them too.

    Had friends who enjoy drinking but not so much for kicks but more the appreciation of it so...you learn something from hanging with them. I keep wines and liquor at home as we have friends who visits from oversea who buys it for us and we use them for offerings in Taoist ritual offerings to chinese deities at our home altar. Thus having to keep recylce most of it after ritual offerings we put them back in liquor containers we have heh. That's how I know how long they can last. Keep them clean without contamination is more the issue though the alcohol content will kill most germs that lands in it.

    Leave it to our (mainland) Chineses to come up with all this weird concoction recipes for reasons of "promotion good health" and "male libido".

    I think they are buying the bottles if I am not wrong. Those bottle they want or what they indicated they want are not exactly limited editions. If I own a limited edition or I have an expensive one or a cetain vintage..I would not be selling it in the classified. It will be at some uptown auction house if I have like a Rothschild or a Dom Perignon of very good or rare vintage.

    I know what you mean. I saw them a few months back when my company started selling off some old office furniture..and I saw those ads.

    I suspect they buy the bottler as props or something...hopefully not for pirating or filling them with fake liquor recap it and sell. EG...at some dinky nightclub where patrons are too stoned or drunk to notice the difference. That is more my suspicions.

    not for the bottle lah. my sis sold a few bottles with damaged labels and still fetch good price. Was told some neighbouring country rich ppl like aged liquors. Can fetch high price.
