Refrigeration of Cream Liquor

by BelethorsGeneralGoods   Last Updated August 10, 2018 00:17 AM

I recently bought a bottle of Jackson Morgan cream liquor. The alcohol content on the bottle is listed at 15%. After looking up when alcohol percentage becomes a preservative I found an article that stated:

If it’s under 15% alcohol or if the base is wine, it goes in the fridge once it’s open.

Even though it says under 15% and this is listed at exactly 15%, it seems a little too close for comfort for me where I want some more information. I was wondering if anyone had any experience or references on the following:

  • Is it safe to keep the cream liquor on the bar top?

  • When does the percentage of alcohol become a valid preservative?
