Once known as the ‘cellarette’ in the 1400s, the liquor cabinet soon evolved from storage use to eventually becoming a furniture mainstay in the domiciles of the elites by the 20th century. Today, it is commonly found in many homes and even offices, not just with varied designs but built-in automated features too. With a fine selection out there, we have narrowed down 5 timeless and exquisite liquor cabinets for the ladies and gentlemen who appreciate their aperitifs in pure style.
