Some of you are going to the Northeast Tiki Tour so you'll be in MA next month. You can always call ahead to Yankee Spirits and get your Lemon Hart.

Note: pappythesailor has no affiliation with Lemon Hart, Yankee Spirits nor their subsidiaries.

Definitely. I'm hoping to lay my hands on some before then, but that will be my back up!

I've got the answer to this problem! Does anyone have any contacts at the New York Times? Because if someone does an article on hard-to-find rums I guarantee they will suddenly become available everywhere. It happened just before Christmas last year with ryes--they ran an article and suddenly every corner liquor store carried about ten kinds of rye. Most recently it was Hudson Valley small-batch whiskey distillers. Now even our suburban stores have them. If the Times publishes a story mentioning Lemon Hart it will be everywhere inside of a month!

Turns out my liquor store (by far the best in the Hudson Valley) can't get Lemon Hart. Apparently it's "not available in the Hudson Valley," for reasons even she didn't understand. She did say, however, that it is available in NYC. Can anyone in the city confirm that? I'll gladly help create a demand if there is a particular store in NYC that is known to carry it.

I called a bunch of places in NJ (apparently not shipped there) and NYC (not any place I called, don't remember who, but definitely Astor Wines). I didn't ask about ordering by the case though. If anyone else finds an NYC source before I do, I'd be glad to help/order/split with anyone else in the NYC/NorthNJ area.

More good news for the New England ohana.

Just picked up a couple of bottles of Lemon Hart at Kappy's in Peabody MA yesterday (junction of Routes 114 and 128). The 80 proof was 13 bucks and the 151 was around 19 bucks. I am sure the Saugus store probably has some too since it's even bigger. I just can't seem to walk out of a bookstore, cd shop or liquor store empty handed.

See you on the tour next month...

I did not see any Lemon Hart in the Saugus Kappy's when I last visited, about 3 weeks ago.

The Peabody store seems to stay on top of their rums better, IMHO. The Saugus store seems to be a mass-market drive-by location specializing in the common stuff. Well, that's not completely true, but I think their rum selection is smaller than Peabody's, though Saugus has 3 times more bottles of Bacardi just in case you need to buy 200 bottles at once.

I just returned from Boston with a suitcase full of Lemon Hart. The bottle shops in the north end, Italian district are, or should I say were well stocked . The big shop on the corner (Martengetii's SP.?) as you enter the Italian district sells the 80 proof for $13.99. I also found the 151 proof at a small shop along the Freedom Trail. I wish I had more space in my luggage as I would have brought back some Black Seal 151, which I can't find locally.

Wow, that's a heck of a find! And not too far from home! I know Martignetti's also has a good selection of syrups, so I gotta get over there!

Speaking of Peabody MA liquor stores........I crack up every time I pass this one.....but then again, I'm a little twisted.

as with many in this crowd, I share your enjoyment of the infantile and perverse.

you really have to read the sign out loud to fully appreciate the name.

I used to work around the corner from this placed, and passed it twice a day.

And chuckled *every* time.



Of course, we all know what a bunghole is... right???

I'm sure this is a silly question . . . but . . . WHY is Lemon Hart is so DIFFICULT to find? Is it an inter-continental distrubution thing? A US inter-regional distribution thing? A supply & demand thing? What is it? I can't even get the largest liquor chains in my area to "Special Order" it! Can't even find it on the internet sources - always 'OUT-OF-STOCK'!. Somebody 'splain it to me before I have a "Senior Melt-down"!
