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?
