Hi All,As a new collector and one whose collection is now growing - with a once in a lifetime trip to Speyside planned for our Summer Hols this year and a possible large number of additional bottles being brought home - I was wondering how everyone stores their Whisky Collection? We have a modest sized home, and are already running out of display space for Whisky, what other options would others suggest, what options do you use yourself?Any advice and or info / inspiration or photos would be much appreciated!Oh, and here is a pic of our current 21 bottle collection, with a few duplicates out away in a cupboard at present!Many thanks in advance!
I am quite contrary to the concept of "display space" - all my bottles are for drinking, so I don't feel obliged to show anybody anything about my whiskys unless it's in the glass... even myself I store my bottles in different cupboards/rooms throughout the house (actually wherever my wife lets me ) without any thought to "looking nice", thinking more about "having the right malt to hand at the right time"...So my advice is to keep things simple - don't think too much about it - just keep your bottles to hand in case of acute whisky crisis...
I'm looking to start my own collection of whiskey. While I do enjoy the taste, my ultimate goal is to turn a profit down the road. I have a lot of questions but my first question is about storing whiskey for extended periods (years if not decades) of time. Should it be stored upright or on it's side? Should I dip the necks in wax before storage? Is a basement cabinet a safe place to store it? Should a get a dehumidifier and place near where I'm storing my whiskey? All of these questions apply to corked whiskey bottles and capped whiskey bottles.So far, my collection includes a bottle of Traverse City Whiskey and a bottle of Glenlivit 12.
Forget about a collection. You need to drink em. Collection is just necessary for Malts that you cant get in the future. All others are for drinking.
There is some information about storing whisky at home. Here is the link to our explanations:https://www.whisky.com/information/knowledge/about-whisky/storage.html
Well, it looks like the storage issue has a solution, just won this.... collecting at the weekend..... Think the opened Bottles can go in here........Had to rent a van to fetch it at the weekend, and a major amount of sorting out to do before then, but I think it will look great..... then its just keeping on top of replacing them as we drink them
do you store or display your bottles in their box? I think UV light from daylight would damage the contents, not to mention the label over years, so I always keep mine in the box. but what about those Glenrothes and Jura with their open boxes? should I keep them in a closed cupboard instead?

you can store your Glencairns in the drop cabinet.
On a similar note, what about storing whisky in hot - Middle Eastern hot - climates?I like to have three or four bottles on the go at once, just for variety.
