A 7 gallon oak barrel

The storage location, temperature, etc, of distilled spirits matters greatly when the spirit is in the barrel and is rather insignificant once the spirit has been bottled.

In storage houses used at large distilleries, barrels are often rotated at regular intervals due to non-uniform heating and cooling of the barrels in the house.
