OK, I've been trying to be calm but the time for calm is over. It's time to run around in a circle screaming because I AM NOW OFFICIALLY OUT OF LEMON HART.

Can somebody in the know please let me know how this whole distribution thing works? I just spent like half a day trying to get an address for Lemon Hart London. --nothin'. Who do we have to lean on to get some Lemon Hart on the shelves of my local liquor store???


Is Bacardi behind this? Is it now also time for TC to officially boycott Bacardi? I've been wanting to start an "Enemies List" thread for a while...

I've got a bottle of the 80 and the 151. Both uncracked.

Now going to the highest bidder... Bidding start at $15,000 a bottle.

What is the problem?

Its in stock at Hi-Time in CA, which is probably no help to you.

Beverage Warehouse in L.A. also has it:

Does Pernod Ricard own the brand now?

I wasn't able to find Lemon Hart on the Pernod Ricard web site:

cheekytiki! You're in London. Could you just pop over to Lemon Hart and mention to them we can't get their fine rum back in the States? I'm sure they mustn't be aware of it.

thanks!

The Lemon Hart that is available in Europe is Jamaican.
The Lemon Hart Demerara from Guyana may be available in some specialty shops.
I had to get mine from Germany, and they only have a very small supply of the 151 left.
Hopefully it's just a temporary thing, anyhow there's lots of El Dorado out there to choose from,
and good stuff it is too.

Beachbum Berry was just remarking at Hukilau how Lemon Hart availability stinks. However, there is a major booze store close to me that is alway stocked with both 151 and regular proof of the Demerara.

You can barely find Bacardi in AL, let alone Lemon Hart. However; I used to be able to find it in Pensacola, but sadly no more. And on top of that, you can't have anything shipped to AL.

For you Bostonians, Joyal's in West Warwick, RI, lists it as being in stock.

Thanks for all the posts. I do wish to restate my original rant: I can't find Lemon Hart at any liquor store around here, not that it can't be had.

I did talk to a liquor store guy yesterday who said he could get a case. We'll see if he's full of beans.

Sorry. We have never been able to just go to a near by store and
just pick it up.
It does seem to be getting harder to find.

Sheez Pappy, all you have to do is ask, I've got case in the basement (no fire hazards here!)
Just PM me with what you want.
The 151 is harder to get, the local distributor doesn't stock any, so I have to wait until they send out a truck to the Midwest somewhere, should be another month or so.
