Necessary to refrigerate pomegranate molassess?

Bottled, Cortas brand Pomegranate molasses. We used about 1/3 of the bottle tonight, does it need to be in the fridge, or can we stick it in the pantry?

I would put it in the fridge to be food-safe.

I've kept mine unrefrigerated in the pantry for over a year.

Oxidization, which is inversely proportional to quality, will be reduced under refrigeration. And then there's the issue with any syrup and mold.

IVe never refrigerated mine and have never detected a degradation in quality. ID be a little concerned that it would be too thick to pour if it were refrigerated, but I haven't tested it.

Mine is in the refrigerator. It keeps for ages and does not get any denser.
