Liquor stores for cocktail ingredients?

By smpc 21 February 2010 21

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. 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?

What’s Your opinion?

If anyone stumbles across Marie Brizard Parfait Amour I’d be grateful of the knowledge of where to source it. The Baitz dross is crap flavourless and watery, lacking a depth of colour and viscosity, and makes a poor New England Patriot’s Eye shot. Besides it is delicious on its own…I used to get it in High St Armadale but that provender has gone the way of all flesh.

Come to think of it proper Moscato Grappa or true [not pretend] grenadine locally procured would be a worthwhile source of knowledge gratefully received…it does make baggage on the return trip rather cumbersome when one needs a spare bag and excess for exotic comestibles.

Siiiiggghh back to the secret raspberry mojito recipe…perecto…I suppose locally procured julep cups are really asking too much.
