This message is intriguing in the extreme and so many questions arise from the terse description.

Did the family member walk into a trove of hootch that was (unexpectedly?) part of the home purchase? Or is the family member in the process of creating a museum of spirits? Or a tasting parlor? So many others ...

In any event, this is clearly a very dangerous situation. It would be prudent to share the name and contact information (especially street address) to this list and it is certain that the members will happily assist your family member reduce the quantity of flammable materials present in no time at all. ;)

Its not stored in anything special, just normal wood cabinetry. He is was reaching out to see if he needs to have that amount in any kind of proper flammable storage containers. Thoughts?
