To freeze or not to freeze?


That is the question. If you do a quick search online, you will find a plethora of articles written about whether this is a good idea or not. Straight to the point? It’s a matter of personal preference, but let’s explore what actually happens to vodka at low temperatures.


No matter where you store your vodka, make sure you keep the bottle upright (to avoid spills), maintain a consistent temperature, and avoid exposure to high heat.



Since vodka doesn’t really freeze (at least not in a commercial freezer), you keep vodka in the freezer so that when you serve it, it’s chilled and refreshing, like a glass of water.


Here’s the thing, sticking any spirit in the freezer has its benefits. As the temperature drops, the viscosity (thickness) of a liquid increase. That means after vodka hangs out in the freezer for a while it has a better texture. Vodka becomes more viscous, richer. It coats the mouth.


While it’s true that vodka, due to its ethanol content, will get cold but won’t freeze solid above -27 degrees Celsius (-16.6 degrees Fahrenheit), keeping good vodka in the freezer for longer periods of time can mask some of its best qualities, such as its subtle scents and flavors.


The team at Smilov Spirits suggest keeping a bottle in the freezer the night before or the morning of the day you are are going to have a drink, so it is chilled and ready. We rarely keep it in the freezer for longer periods of time partly because it never lasts that long 😊
