Reply with quote

Hi im from england UK, i have noticed in a lot of establishments have bottle pourers constantly attached to the bottles on the back bar!

Just wondered by exposing the spirits and liquers in this way for long periods of time, will this have any effect on the flavour of the alcohol?

Many Thanks[/b]

Bill is correct, most alcohols don't stay on the shelf long enough for the flavor or alcohol content to be altered. However, I keep a close eye on my hundred proof and slow moving alcohols. The hundred proof really can evaporate quite quickly (but then again I'm in a desert/tundra climate) and alcohols that don't sell quickly will Get a "shelf" flavour. I keep these kind of bottles capped with their origional caps, and when someone comes in and begins to order a lot of it, I will replace the cap with a pourer, setting the cap off somewhere where it won't be lost or thrown away and recap the bottle when the coustomer is done.

Thanks guys appreciate the advice!!!

The reason i ask is that am fairly new to the cocktail and drinks world and have just started setting up a home bar so i can mix drinks and learn more mainly as a hobby!

I have added my email, yahoo and msn addresses to my profile, so you can contact me direct if u wish!

It will cool to be able to chat to other bartenders, its the best way to learn new things!
