Does vodka go bad?

Whether vodka goes bad or expires will depend on a variety of factors, including proper storage. Most alcohol will remain drinkable indefinitely if it is unopened. It’s also unlikely that opened alcohol will “go bad” or be unsafe to drink as its high alcohol content protects it from germs. That said, its taste can definitely be altered. Light, temperature and air can change the way vodka tastes. Keep vodka in a cool, dark place to help preserve its flavor for as long as possible. To go a step further, we recommend storing GREY GOOSE® in the fridge to keep it beautifully refrigerated, ready to mix and perfectly preserved. Flavored vodkas have a shorter shelf life due to the added flavors. It’s best to enjoy these within 90 days of opening. If you notice a strange smell to your vodka, you don’t want to not drink it. If in doubt, throw it out.
