looking for a whisky cabinet

Postby Ileach » Sun Jul 21, 2002 7:54 pm

Over the years, I have collected some 60 odd bottles but I am not quite happy with the way they are stored and displayed right now (on shelves from a you-know-which-one Swedish do-it-yourself furniture store).

Is there a cabinet maker for whisky bottles? How do you store your collection?

Any help from you would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Ileach,

I store mine in the same type of cabinet (swedish...). I only have about 25 bottles, so am happy with what I have, my only concern being that the cabinet has glass fronted doors on so letting light at the bottles.

If you find anywhere, let us know!

Gents --

Elsewhere on this forum you will read that I have a situation similar to that of Ileach.

Marcin (I think) is putting together a piece to show what folks have at home for their whisky storage, as well as some suppliers/builders. Still working on this idea, Marcin? I still think it would be an interesting and useful piece.

Cheers! -- St.Peat.

Apparently the Craigellachie hotel at Craigellachie makes an open whisky cabinet. They can be contacted at www.craigellachie.co.uk

Good luck -

Ileach --

I was sorry to hear that the very whisky museum you mentioned was lost to flooding on Tuesday.

The pictures on the website are great. What a room!

Hi Ileach,

I have far more than 200 bottles and part of them I store in wooden crates. It is not very exclusive to do so, but very practical. You can make variations in combining them. So you can put the bottles in them or on top of them. I have about 20 crates which I have stacked on a wall. In Switzerland they are available in Interio or Micasa stores (IKEA I don't know..) There are two sizes of them, about 35x35 cm and a longer version. Hope I was of help a bit.

Many people seem to have those cabinets with glass doors, of course one might want to show them, but I'm not sure whether that's good for the whisky to keep them lighten? I myself keep the bottles in dark in fully covered cabinet.

Kippis,
Ize
