Does Tequila Have A Shelf Life?

A fact about tequila or rather any spirit is that unlike wine, spirits don't age. That means you can't just pack away your spirit hoping they will age into a finer version with time. Once the seal of the bottle is broken, it should be consumed in the next couple of months. Its quality is the best in that time duration after which it will deteriorate. A bottle whose seal is still intact can be stored for a longer period in the pantry. However, storing an open bottle for a long time is a terrible idea as the taste of the drink will get compromised.
