I know this is an old thread, but as someone who has personally been having a lot of trouble finding Lemonhart in Los Angeles I thought I'd post this here instead of starting a new thread.

A friend just got me a bottle of 151 Demerara (with the newer red label) from Barkeeper in Silverlake for a holiday present. This may be old news, but thought I'd share.

Hi-Times Liquor in Costa Mesa still carries it.

Cap 'N Cork in Silverlake also might carry it - I can't recall.

They do sell it there for $35 I believe.

KKocka that "check inside" thing is amazing and scary all at the same time!

Yeah now all we need is a "move the ladder" feature so that we can see all the rums

Mission Wine & Spirits in Sherman Oaks on Burbank Blvd regularly has it in stock. As does KL Wines on Vine in Hollywood.

By chance anywhere closer to your neck of the woods, like Santa Clarita? Been doing a sweep of liquor stores to see what kinda rum stocks they have and they're all terrible so far.

Does anyone know why no one in New Jersey seems to sell Lemon Hart? I can't find El Dorado either. Shipping for a $30 bottle is $14, kinda kills it for me to pay that much. Now that it's on my radar I'll be looking for it if I leave the state.

I wonder why. NJ sucks, again.

There's no distributor for Lemon Hart here in Arizona. Does anyone know where to purchase it in Las Vegas?

It's no longer being imported, so don't hold out much hope.

But do look around - make phone calls - and you might find some within driving distance, say 2 to 3 hours depending on where you're at. (Daytrips are always nice, right?)

I just got a tip today that it's still on shelves in some places in my city. That won't last for long.

The talk among a few at Hukilau is that their research for an alternative has already begun. LH151 has become well-enough established in fine drinking establishments that an alternative to LH151 is really needed. I expect we'll be hearing of alternatives within the next 3 months. There are many fine distilleries around the world, and surely there must be a suitable product out there.

Unfortunately, you'll probably have to bite the bullet and use mail order. This wine site also covers spirits and does a good job in finding places that have hard to get rums.

I spoke with Tommy the bar manager at Bali Hai last night. He expressed his concern about LH 151, and didn't seem to know yet what they would do in place of it once the last of their cases are used up. And when I was at the Cat Eye Club (which has recently introduced a tiki cocktail menu) a couple of weeks ago and told them about LH151 disappearing for a year, the bartenders were kind of shocked and didn't know about it. They too weren't sure what they'd do regarding the 2-3 drinks they make that include it.

Any one know what the Mai Kai, Tonga Hut, etc. plan to do?
