How to Store Brandy Correctly

Apr. 27, 2020

Buying a good bottle of brandy is a good investment like buying a good bottle of wine, and, if stored properly, its shelf life may be longer. One of the most frequently asked questions is whether you can keep the brandy open or unopened for several years, and whether this process will affect spirits. In short, the answer is no.

Once the brandy is removed from the barrel and aged in the barrel, it will no longer ripen, which is different from wine, which will continue to improve the quality of the bottle when stored properly. The aging process of brandy is only carried out in wine barrels. Depending on the barrel, it will show different flavors and tastes.

Once opened, the brandy can be kept for many years and should always be stored upright in a sealed glass container. When brandy comes into contact with oxygen, it will slowly deteriorate and alcohol will slowly evaporate. Therefore, keep the bottle upright and sealed, and store in a cool, dark environment, away from direct sunlight and exposure to high-temperature fluctuations. It is essential that this liquid does not touch the cork during storage, because the sugar accumulation around the cork will infuse the brandy with the cork's taste. The best place is to store the bottle in the basement or closet, away from the outer wall. Some people even pour brandy into smaller containers to ensure that the ratio of liquid to air is as small as possible.
