Old Liquors Magazine
by Benjamin Mitrofan-Norris
7M ago
It seems fair to say that this article – regarding how long one can store an opened bottle of wine – might appear a little pointless to many wine fanatics. After all, in my household and many others, the concept of leftover wine is one which rarely gets considered, as bottles are polished off with great gusto, accompanied by great food and scintillating conversation.

Perhaps you’re one of those individuals who likes just a small gl ..read more

Rows and rows of dusty bottles of cognac, armagnac, port, chartreuse and other liquors stand proudly together on the many shelves like an army of old friends, their heads dripping wax as if they’ve just emerged from a snowstorm.

That’s the one from 1789 – the year the Fr ..read more
