  QUESTION: Storing liquor in lead crystal decanters - bad idea. 30 Dec 2003, Texas USA

I just have a quick question. Is it a bad idea to use crystal decanters to store liquor in?

ANSWER: 07 Jan 2004

Dear Jonathan,

Yes! it is a bad idea. I have also attached a fact sheet from the Health Canada website and the updated version of the 1993 FDA warning mentioned on the Royal Leerdam webpage. I hope this helps.

Cheers
Elizabeth O'Brien
