When you have expensive top-shelf spirits and other alcoholic

Resolved Question:

When you have expensive top-shelf spirits and other alcoholic beverages that come boxes, what is the protocol for storage?

Some examples:

18 Year Old Jameson
18 Year Old Glenfiddich
Jameson Gold Label Reserve
Johnny Walker Blue Label
12 Year Old Glenlivet
Dom Perignon 2000 Vintage
Cristal Champagne

So for those of the above that come in boxes, are you supposed to keep them in the box or remove them and keep the bottle exposed? Does the box protect the liquor at all or is it just to make the product look more expensive?

HelloCustomer and welcome back to JustAnswer!

It is best to store these expensive top-shelf alcoholic beverages in their boxes, as light entering a clear bottle is not good to maintain the quality of the beverage. It is also recommended to store in a cool place which has no temperature fluctuation throughout the year, like a basement. If you don't have a basement, store in another cool place that remains cool all the time.
