I commonly mix cocktails both for home consumption and for parties, but anything more unusual than your basic martini tends to contain ingredients that aren’t exactly common at most liquor stores. I’m looking for a retailer that stocks things like rye whiskey (besides the entry-level Jim Beam variety you can get at Dan Murphy’s), bitters other than the standard Angostura aromatic, etc. I’ve checked all the usual suspects around here (Belconnen) and in Civic with no luck.
Thinkspirits.com.au claim that they supply all sorts of unusual spirits to Dan Murphys, Liquorland etc, but I’ve never had any luck with them. Is there anywhere in Canberra that you can get less common spirits or bitters, or does it need to wait for my next trip to Sydney?
