WHISKY STORAGE IDEAS FOR YOUR HOME
One of the pleasures of owning a whisky collection is showing it off. Instead of hiding bottles away in cupboards or behind boxes, make the most of your home bar by creating a feature in your home.
If space is limited, why not put up a whisky shelf in your kitchen and put your bottles on display. Or fill an empty corner with a wooden storage box or glass cabinet. You can get as fancy as you like with uplighting, a decanter and easy-access glasses for drinking.
How you organise your whisky collection is up to you. A-Z of distilleries, favourite ones first or perhaps a map of origin – the choice is yours.
