Does Warehouse have a web-site?


I doubt it...their stock changes almost daily (this is true of Astor too..which is why you can't rely upon their website)

Web-sites may not be 100% reliable, but they're better than nothing. Especially as I'm not a "call now" kind of guy.

I guess I figured that you'd often be in the neighborhood of those two stores....I usually am a couple times a week and then drop in to see what's new...

Found Aperol at K & D Wines on 96 and Madison (with some help). What a nice store. It was their last bottle (although they do have it regularly). Bought some Cynar too. Now just have to find or remember some recipes.


Just saw this thread. Sorry Wilf, had I known you were searching for Aperol, I would have given you a bottle. I drink the stuff and keep it on hand. Good with OJ. Bottles can be found in 3 local stores here in Bklyn so just let me know when you run out.

This space available… contact owner.

Small article on these in yesterday's New York Post: The Fernet Effect. Scarpetta GM Jeffrey Tascarella hopes to 25-30 varieties available within the next year.

I think I'd like to give Branca Menta a try.

In related (but not really) news, Estonia's Vana Tallinn -- not a real balsam like Riga Black (Rīgas Melnais balzams), but more of a balsam-esque liqueur -- is apparently now available in the U.S. Good thing since the bottle I brought back from Estonian eons ago is due for replacing.

Bought a bunch of schnaps last week in Saalfelden. The Marille (apricot) is really wonderful. Intense, smells like summer, and you can practically taste the apricot fuzz in the finish.

(Should we have a separate eau de vie/grappa/schnaps thread?)

as long as they can be killed out of season.

One thing you have to give NBC: it's a seemingly boundless source of retarded quotes.
