I don't have a formal liquor cabinet, so I store my whiskey stash (about 60-70 bottles and constantly growing) wherever I can find space. Most of them end up on the floor of my bedroom closet, but overflow ends up in cabinets throughout the house. My family has taken to complaining that they are tired of opening what used to be, say, a jewelry cabinet and finding whiskey.

I was thinking of investing in a nice liquor cabinet which would provide both easy access and a nice display, and had even picked out a place for it, but after this week's tremor, I had visions of broken bottles and lost treasures. I started to figure that maybe the closet floor wasn't such a bad place after all.

So, for you Californians (or others living in quake prone lands), how do you store your whiskey?
