I have only used Hiram Walker curacao in my mai tais, but since reading some other threads alot of you fellow tcers have recommended marie brizard, but i can't find it in any local liquor stores or onine. Does anyone have a bottle they would sell/send me, I would paypal you, or tell me where I can order it from. Thanks

Hey Aaron,

If its not findable up that way or even in Orlando or Tampa, I'll work with you. Its findable down at this end of the state. We'll talk.

I recently found a dusty old bottle at 'The Bottle Shop' in Montecito, CA. I haven't opened it yet as I haven't had the time and am kinda waiting for a special occasion. I have found that some of the more odd liquor stores have some great stuff stashed away that they don't even know about. Basically anyplace that allws dust to settle on their bottles is a good candidate.

Not only have I found many of the not so common items inthese shops, but they were often at really good prices. I've found a 1L bottle of Lemon Hart 151 for $16, Parfait Amour $11, 1L Black Seal $13, and Marie Brizzard Orange Curacao $17.

It also doesn't hurt to ask if your favorite liquor store can order some. Sometimes you'll get lucky.

-T.J.

P.S. I'll dig around again and see if I can find another bottle for ya.

Thanks for the help guys, I pm'd I dream of tiki since in Miami near my old home town of Pembroke Pines. We only have abc liquor and the various liquor stores attached to the grocery stores in town here so I need all the help I can get. I did get lucky and score some el dorado demerara 15 year rum at kash n' karry before they discontinued selling it. All the hard to find stuff I have had to order online and shipping is a bitch, but what can we do right? Thanks again.

Alright I am having the same problem finding the marie brizzard curacao in Los Angeles. No one here seems to carry it, and I am currently using hiram walkers. Is hirams as good as dekruyper(sp?) or bols? Any help on info would be appreciated.

I never got hooked up with the Marie Brizard either. I am still using Hiram Walker as that's all I can get. I can't find anyone online that carries it or i'd order it. A little help anyone! I will pay for the bottle and shipping if anyone is willing to send it to a fellow TC member. I would really like to have all the ingredients to make Beachbum Berry's $100.00 mai tai!

I finally found Marie Brizard Curacao at a deli in Santa Monica that I have been going to for years to get food. While waiting for my sandwich the last time, I decided to check out the liquor department and found Marishino liquor and the Curacao. I am trying to talk the liquor manager into ordering the clear,they had a few bottles of orange and I got one for now. I asked if he would concider getting some of the more unusal liquors that Don the Beachcomber and Trader Vic's used, he says if there is enough demand, he will stock what is requested.

For those of you with a local BevMo, just pay them a visit and they can special order it for you.

I got the same answer from our local (Bay Area) BevMos, "Can't get it because it's discontinued."

I was in Las Vegas last weekend, and both the Lee's Discount Liquors I was in had it for $23.99 a bottle. I almost bought one, but I'm holding out for Senior's Curacao of Curacao. Maybe I should have gotten one, but I'd already spent enough at that point.

jes i see it, but i was hoping closer to the valley. will i guess i will have to make a trip out to santa monica. what gets me is that wine and liquor depot has all the marie brizzards but that one, and this place has everything. i always go to the depot because their prices cant be beat.

When you are there please encourage the manager or owner to order the clear Brizard. I could only get the orange but it's better than blue. Order a sandwich on hot bread or get some bread to go. The bread by itself is worth the trip from the valley.
