Some selection would be nice

Posted on Wed, Apr 8, 2015 at 4:00 AM

Is it too much to ask to be able to find some variety in spirits in our liquor stores? The NSLC's selection of gins is laughable (nothing but London dry? Where's my Old Tom, New Modern, Plymouth, or Genever?); I've only ever seen two brands of vermouth; there's no amari to speak of beyond Aperol or Campari; and the selection of liqueurs is laughable (crème de violette or maraschino would be nice). While the selection at the few private stores is slightly better, those places concentrate on beers and wines. Spirits seem like an afterthought at best. I can't wait until this province gets caught up with the trends of the past 5 years or so and I can actually make the craft cocktails I can currently only read about. —Lacking in Provincial Spirit
