    Nitrogen bottle for displacing air in bourbon bottles

    Does anyone know where to get these? Which brand is good? I think they're nitrogen, but I'm not sure- the things that you spray air into the bottle to displace the air and keep it from going bad.

    Can you get them on ebay or amazon? Is there a good place to buy them? Is there a good brand or brands to watch out for?

    Also- not totally sure if this is the right section of the forum.

    Re: Nitrogen bottle for displacing air in bourbon bottles

    I use Private Preserve which seems to be one of the most common and is available on Amazon. Hard to know how it compares with whiskey (I'm going to put an experiment together, but it will take time) but the wine folks seem to like it.

    Yes, it says "wine" but is the same for all purposes.

    Re: Nitrogen bottle for displacing air in bourbon bottles

    I absolutely swear by this stuff. Many people don't notice it, but I stand by my claim that whiskey gets stale a month or two after you open the bottle. If you are one of those people that have dozens of bottles open for years at a time and don't think the flavor changes, then God bless you. I wish I was like that. But I can definitely taste the flavor deteriorate if I don't spray after each pour.

    If you are a nut-job like me, get together with your friends and buy it a case at a time from here, works out to $6.50 / bottle delivered.

    I also use Private Preserve and love it. Until I get down to about 1/4 bottle left or so. Then I get a friend or two together and we just finish the bottle.

    It also ensures a good supply of friends.

    Do you find yourself sticking with the original cork or going with one of the wine stoppers to keep out the air?

    Excellent question. I have been staring at this stuff at the local "kitchen megamart" for a while now. I do have a few bottles that are open that will probably stay that way for quite some time without being emptied (me, not emptying a bottle, imagine that!). I'll have to give it a try.

    Depends on the cork. If it seems sound I keep it. If I open a bottle and the cork seems dried out or otherwise suspect I immediately decant into a screw-top.

    Agreed! I also tend to decant into smaller bottles as the fill level gets down, to minimize the amount of airspace.

    I prefer nitrous oxide. It makes everything taste better.
