If you're storing it in the original box, I wouldn't expect more than maybe 2 years. Packed in a reduced oxygen environment, it lasts a long time. I just opened a bucket that was stored 10 years ago in the hot (west Texas!) shed. Compared side by side with a fresh box, it's almost identical even though heat is it's biggest enemy.

If you find the right mix ratio (hint: the box recommendation isn't it), it's actually very good to drink. If you store it in the box, I suggest rotating it into your meals.
