    Default Storage position for tequila bottles

    Hello All:

    Is it ok to store tequila bottles on their side or will contact with the cork affect the flavor?

    Thanks

    I'd be much more worried about leakage than cork wrecking the taste.

    +1 on that. Tequila corks are meant to be taken in-and-out many times, so even unopened tequila corks are not as tight as say, unopened wine corks. If you plan on keeping an unopened bottle of tequila in storage for awhile, it's okay to flip it and moisten the cork every so often, but don't store it horizontally.

    It's very dry where I live, so I have the problem of all my corks drying out and allowing air in the bottle. For the past year I have been covering the tops of my bottles with a balloon for an air tight seal, and storing them upright. This seems to be working pretty good for me.
