Whisky cabinetry

Postby St.Peat » Thu Aug 16, 2001 9:48 am

My small stock of whisky is currently in the same cupboard as our china. It's definitely time to get a real whisky cabinet, but I don't know where to begin. Are there cabinetmakers out there who specialise in those?

I would like to see what a lot of other whiskinados use for their whisky cabinet. Can Marcine and Team put together a few photos and an article with some interviews and such? I think it would be great to see the variations in design, size, and utility!

In the meantime, can anyone suggest a place where I can find whisky cabinets or makers online?

Thanks! -- St.Peat

St Peat,

There are different cabinets to use, like for example Oak wood cabinet, with or with out small doors with glass, or complete dark no glass in it, or larch wood perhaps pine. Anyway it doesn't matter what you use as long as it is stored on a dry cool and dark place, that's always the best......
( mine are stored on the bottom of some sort storage)

Slainte,

Thanks, Erik. I am storing the whiskies in a cool, dry, dark place. However, I am looking for something which stands by itself, probably made of wood, and most likely designed for liquor storage and presentation.

I had a pine wardrobe made without the hanging rail, but with 3 shelves instead. It holds about 160 tall 700ml bottles. It cost £300 and looks like a matching normal wardrobe, so it isn't obvious to burglars

Well I've just created a whisky room based on the Clarendon furniture range (high quality dark pine) from MFI to display/store my collection. Coupled with a wooden oak floor it looks the part and is based on the Strathisla tasting room which stuck in my mind from my last visit.

Thanks, Gentlemen!

Now I've over-spilled the cupboard and have run into 2 other areas, also cool and dark. But, alas, no real whisky cabinet Image

Marcine, is it possible to send one of the gang out with a camera to snap a few photos and write a few brief words? I'm sure that some readers have beautiful solutions to the storage cabinet problem Image
