Liquor Decanters

nyboyFebruary 8, 2012

I know you should not use old Lead crystal decanters to store liquor. What about new decanters for long time storage? Bed, bath and beyond had some decanters the tiny stickers said crystal, would these be safe to hold liquor for a year or more? Any way of telling if new crystal has lead in it? Thank You

I think they'd be fine.

It is not recommended that you use leaded crystal to hold liquor for long periods of time. Rather, pour the liquid into the decanters before a social event and remove it afterwards. Unleaded crystal will be clearly labeled as such, just as leaded crystal is.
