A Craft Distillery that produces fewer than 750,000 gallons annually. A Craft Distillery is independently owned and operated, with more than a 75% equity stake in its company and operational control. NJoy Spirits Distillery is a Florida Craft Distillery.

Once opened, whiskey can be stored for years without going bad unless you keep it in an unsealed bottle next to a radiator or direct sunlight. However, even if tightly resealed, the taste and quality of whiskey in an opened bottle will slowly change as it reacts with oxygen in the air.

Yes — whiskey, rum, and moonshine with a splash of water or ice and a slice of lime. Or drink it “neat” in a small glass, warmed between your hands.

Start with our Award-Winning “Wild Buck Whiskey.” It is 100-Proof “Heaven.” Once you have tasted our Wild Buck Whiskey, you now know what great whiskey should taste like. After that, you can try some of the “off-the-shelf” whiskey, so you understand why Wild Buck Whiskey wins so many awards.

  • Wild Buck Whiskey – 100-Proof – The King of Craft Whiskey
  • Mermaid Rum – 100-Proof – Just the Right Amount of Sweetness
  • Ryes-In-Shine Moonshine – 150-Proof – Smooth

The rule Liquor use is: If it’s under 15% alcohol or if the base is wine, it goes in the fridge once it’s open. Spirits like whiskey, rum, gin, vodka, etc., don’t need to be refrigerated because the high alcohol content preserves their integrity.

An unopened bottle of Liquor doesn’t go bad. Unopened Liquor can last for decades upon decades. NJoy Spirits Distillery, master whiskey, rum, and moonshine distillers, recommend drinking a bottle of Liquor within 6 months of opening.

Spirits or liquors like vodka, tequila, rum, gin, brandy, and whiskey can be left out at room temperature or chilled depending on personal preference, according to beverage expert Anthony Caporale. White wine, champagne, beer, and cider should all be chilled in the refrigerator before consumption.

How to tell if Liquor is bad. This one is quite easy – you will know. If you’ll notice some impurities in the bottle, change of color, or radical change of smell, it’s better to discard the liquid. If it looks fine, taste it.

Expired alcohol doesn’t make you sick. You generally only risk a duller taste if you drink liquor after it’s been open for more than a year. Flat beer typically tastes off and may upset your stomach, whereas spoiled wine usually tastes vinegary or nutty but isn’t harmful.

Whether it’s still sealed or already opened, there’s no need to refrigerate or freeze hard liquor. Hard liquors like vodka, rum, tequila, and whiskey; most liqueurs, including Campari, St. Germain, Cointreau, and Pimm’s; and bitters are perfectly safe to store at room temperature.

The general rule is to store them at room temperature for standard distilled spirits, such as whiskey, vodka, gin, rum, and tequila. However, some experts state that the ideal range is slightly lower, between 55 and 60 degrees. Keeping them in a relatively cool place preserves them longer.

Yes, hard liquor has a higher alcohol content than beer. But as long as you’re drinking them at the same speed, a shot of liquor in a mixer should give you the same buzz as a 12-ounce beer. Shots tend to get people drunker because they take them more quickly than they would drink a beer or a glass of wine.

The proof is a scale used to measure the amount of alcohol in liquor. The scale goes from 1 to 200. In the United States, the actual alcohol content, by volume, is half of whatever the proof number reads so that a 200 proof liquor is 100% alcohol and a 100 proof liquor is 50% alcohol by volume. Mermaid Rum is 100-Proof. Wild Buck Whiskey is 100-Proof. Ryes-In-Shine Moonshine is 150-Proof.

It depends on several factors, including your body weight, hydration, and metabolic rate, plus the Proof of the Liquor. In general, if your drink 3-5 shots of 30 to 40-Proof Liquor in twenty minutes, you’re going to be quite drunk, and it will all hit you at the same time. Conversely, if you drink the same five shots over three hours, you’ll be happy and buzzed at the end but much less likely to get sick.

  • It’s best to use some sort of glass that tapers near the top, in order to concentrate the aromas.
  • Because of the above fact, your first task is to simply smell the spirit.
  • Take an initial sip and just let it coat your mouth.
  • Enjoy your spirit with small sips.

The phrase Top Shelf is generally used to describe the cost of Liquor. More expensive liquors were placed on the “top shelf” to be more visible to patrons and are seemingly likely to be accidentally used by the bar person. Wild Buck Whiskey is a Top Shelf tasting whiskey without the top-shelf price.

A few Top Shelf whiskeys include:

Unlike wines, distilled spirits do not improve with age once they are in the bottle. As long as they are not opened, your whiskey, brandy, rum, and the like will not change, and they will certainly not mature further while they wait on the shelf.

  • Breath 12-24 Hours
  • Urine 12-24 Hours; 72 Hours or more for newer test methods
  • Saliva 12-24 Hours
  • Hair Up to 90 Days

The spirits/liquor you can put in a decanter are Whiskey – Bourbon – Scotch – Vodka – Tequila – Gin – Rum – Brandy – Cognac.

Both cans and bottles may explode if kept at high temperatures for long periods. Other alcoholic spirits can change under high heat as well. In extreme heat, cans and bottles can explode, creating excessive pressure inside the container.

It may cause our body to release endorphins (making us feel relaxed and euphoric), but it’s also classified as a depressant. If you’re predisposed to mental health disorders, alcohol can exacerbate the effects of certain conditions – including anxiety and depression.

Unfortunately for whiskey aficionados, drinking too much alcohol of any kind — including rum — can damage your liver, as noted by registered dietitian Laura Krebs-Holm. “Chronic excessive drinking can lead to alcoholism, fatty liver disease, and cirrhosis,” she told The List.

Alcohol is a source of empty calories in the diet. Meaning it adds to your daily calorie intake but doesn’t provide any real nutrition. Some argue that small amounts of alcohol can have health benefits, like heart health, but the research does not show that alcohol benefits weight loss or fat loss in particular.

Up To 1 Year In A Lead-Free Decanter That Is Kept Away From Sunlight And Additional Heat Sources.

Anyone who’s ever indulged in a drink or two knows that alcohol can make you really sleepy, real fast. That’s because alcohol depresses the central nervous system. It has a sedative effect that helps you relax and makes you drowsy, so you fall asleep faster.

Spirits often have the biggest bang for your buck: Just a shot of whiskey, gin, or rum is likely to give you a buzz faster than downing beer or wine. They also are the lightest and lowest carbohydrate drinks of the group: A standard shot of whiskey, tequila, vodka, gin, or rum has about 97 calories.

Whiskey can be used as a conditioning mask to give you healthier and shinier hair. Quicker hair re-growth – A simple mixture of warm olive oil, one egg yolk, and one teaspoon of whiskey can promote quicker hair regrowth.

Alcohol can cause weight gain in four ways: it stops your body from burning fat, it’s high in kilojoules, it can make you feel hungry, and it can lead to poor food choices.

Gin, rum, vodka, or whiskey – If you drink these with alcohol, your blood sugar may spike and then dip to dangerously low levels. When consumed on their own, hard liquors provide 0 grams of carbs but may lead to deficient blood sugar levels. Avoid drinking them on an empty stomach or mixing them with sugary drinks.
