Why you shouldn't store bourbon in the fridge

As Enjoy the Bourbon recommends, the best sips of bourbon are found when served at room temperature. While you may mistakenly believe that storing bottles in your fridge or freezer may preserve some of the contents within, keeping bourbon in these kinds of cold environments can actually take away from the flavor of the alcohol and eliminate flavor nuances from the overall experience.

Instead, keep those precious bottles of booze away from direct sunlight, suggests Dramson, ideally upright in a cabinet or storage area where temperature fluctuations won't impact the liquid.

Then, when you do go to pour yourself a wee dram, all of the bourbon's unique tasting notes will be on full display. Should you decide to serve the bourbon on ice, extra cubes can always be added, but the decision will be left up to the drinker, who may want to first sample the alcohol as it is meant to be enjoyed.
