Secure Your Whiskey in This New, And Very Large, Bulletproof Cabinet

By Katelyn Best / October 3, 2019

So you’ve gotten your hands on that bottle of 50-year-old Bowmore—or maybe you’re more of a Pappy 23 person. Whatever your preferred super-high-end dram, you can’t keep that precious juice just anywhere. You need somewhere secure, of course, but you also want to be able to show it off.

You need a bank vault you can keep in your house, but one with glass on the front—bulletproof glass.

Lucky for you, there’s Whisky Vault. And the minds behind the world’s most secure liquor cabinet—first available last year—have announced they’re rolling out an even bigger size, called Whisky Vault Grand. The new version comes with “two large bulletproof windows, double vault doors with LaGard electronic locks, machined aluminum tri-spoke handles and enough space to hold a collection of 180+ bottles on four shelves.”

“Most whisky collectors hide their bottles in closets, boxes, storage rooms etc. and often forget what they actually have in their collection,” said the company in a prepared statement. “The Whisky Vault is a secure cabinet where prized bottles can be proudly displayed. Showcase your collection, don’t hide it. What will you put in your Whisky Vault?”

If that sounds like a lot, it is—this beast weighs in at around 2000 pounds (the company recommends checking with a structural engineer to be sure your floor can handle it) and will run you $28,000. But if your whiskey collection is worth tens of thousands of dollars, that investment could be well worth it.

If you’re not quite ready to commit to the behemoth size, Whisky Vault is also available in 44- and 108-bottle versions (each housing half its capacity behind the glass and half in a solid teak cabinet), costing $6,000 and $15,000, respectively. You can also order a custom-built version to fit your specific collection and space, and hand-airbrushed artwork is available for an extra fee upon request.
