Keeping rice wine
How do you keep/store Chinese rice wine (Shao Xing wine)?
Should I store it in the refrigerator?
Or just in a cool dry place (like in the kitchen cupboard).
Chinese rice wine is an extremely resilient alcohol. If it's cooking wine, then I'm sure that a kitchen cupboard is fine, as the Chinese cooking wine (many that are also from Shaoxing) is loaded with salt, and they use their youngest/worst (Matured less than 1 year) wines for that stuff. If it's a drinking-quality rice wine then once you open the bottle, I recommend you keep it in the refrigerator to keep the fresh taste.
