Keeps indefinitely



  • How long does sambuca last? The answer to that question is a matter of quality, not safety, assuming proper storage conditions - when properly stored, a bottle of sambuca has an indefinite shelf life, even after it has been opened.
  • To maximize the shelf life of sambuca for quality purposes, store in a cool dry area away from direct heat or sunlight; keep tightly closed when not in use.
  • Once a bottle of sambuca is opened, the contents may begin to evaporate slowly and some flavor may be lost over time, but the sambuca will remain safe to consume if it has been stored properly.
  • How to tell if sambuca has gone bad? The shelf life of sambuca is indefinite, but if sambuca develops an off odor, flavor or appearance, it should be discarded for quality purposes.
