Do spirits "go bad"?

Rabbit | Jan 18, 2009 05:08 PM

I always thought that liquor would survive a nuclear winter... but then I had a bottle of cassis that clearly "went bad."

We're currently debating whether an ancient bottle of cherry heering has gone off. How long can liqueurs live on the shelf (uncorked, but only very sporadically imbibed) and how does one know when they have gone off??

Thanks -
