Whiskey being poured on the rocks.
Is It Ever Smart To Store Your Whiskey In The Freezer?
By Ariana DiValentino
While vodka is commonly stored in the freezer, you may wonder if whiskey can be kept chilled the same way.
Good whiskey has a high content of volatiles like alcohol, esters, and terpenes, creating a symphony of flavors and aromas and an enjoyable sensory experience.
Keeping whiskey at sub-zero temperatures will damage and dull your perception of the volatiles, making it seem less rich and lacking flavor and diminishing the tasting experience.
To best appreciate a good whiskey, you should store it at room temperature — especially if you've spent money on a quality bottle.
