Should you put your bourbon in a decanter?

The main purpose of a bourbon decanter is to display your bourbon in all of its glory! Also, it removes the label of the bottle which for some people is a major benefit. This way, when you’re pouring a drink, there can be no preconceived notion about how the bourbon will taste. Instead, everyone gets to enjoy their drink in the moment.

What kind of decanter do you use for bourbon?

It is recommended when looking at bourbon decanter sets and standalone decanters to get a lead-free decanter. Any of these will do the job of holding your liquor and storing it safely. Vintage bourbon decanters were made with glass that contained lead which can be a health concern. To avoid any risk, simply find a modern lead-free decanter and you and your bourbon will be perfectly safe!

How long is bourbon good in a decanter?

Bourbon is good in a decanter for a few months to a few years depending on the tightness of the seal. Because alcohol evaporates, you can lose some of your bourbon due to evaporation but only over a significant amount of time. Also, if  bourbon is in a decanter for too long, it can also lose some of the finer qualities in its taste. It is recommended to leave enough bourbon in your decanter to enjoy for a short while but for long-term storage and to leave the rest in a sealed container.

Is bourbon better in a decanter?

Bourbon does not get better in a decanter, instead, it is all about presentation. Don’t worry about finding the perfect bourbon decanter set to enhance the flavor because none of them will. Instead, get a decanter set that you think looks awesome and that you will be proud to show off to friends, family, clients, and really anyone you come across.
