I am in the process of doing some remodeling which will include liquor storage as well as a wine cellar of sorts. I understand that I should not store bourbon on its side, but should rather store upright with the occasional wetting of the cork to keep from having it dry out and disintegrate.

should I be looking for cool dry space or cool damp space for whatever I decide to start exploring? (I am guessing dark jsut as a matter of principle with kids in the house)
