Do you refrigerate any of your alcohol?
Obviously this excludes beer and wine; but I mean, like vodka, bourbon, vermouth, any of those types... should any of them go in the refrigerator? Or is it just a matter of preference if you want them to be chilled? Someone told me vermouth should so it stays good longer...? Is that true at all?

Not necessary to refrigerate any of those mentioned, including vermouth.

Personal preference and convenience are a different story. You can refrigerate any alcohol. I keep a bottle of Jaegermeister in the freezer and sometimes have it over ice. It's just too nasty at room temperature.

Wine doesn't last long enough to warrant some fridge real estate.

I do not put any in the fridge. I used to keep my vodka in the freezer until I found out that my drinks were better if the booze was room temp and chilled by shaking with ice. The melted water from the ice is often an important part of the drink.

I keep a bottle of Grey Goose in the freezer. All other spirits are in the bunker.

Kim used to keep a bottle of Rumplemintz in the freezer...he may still have some out in the garage. I like white wine chilled, but as y'all know, I'm not much of a connoisseur.

I keep 43 bottles in a wine fridge. Otherwise, only open bottles of wine.

I keep vodka and gin in the freezer. Rarely serve them, but when I do, I like them to be icy cold.

jager, barenjager, vodka, gin: Freezer

My dark stuff, I like room temp.

Vodka, whiskey, wine, beer are all in the fridge. Used to keep the vodka in the freezer but it works better in the shaker if it isn't so cold. For some reason I keep the Midori on a dark shelf instead of the fridge.
A friend of ours helps us figure out which wines are best chilled and which ones are best at room temp, right now all of the ones we have can be chilled.
