I was at Beverage Warehouse in Culver City stocking up on supplies and asked where the Falernum was. The guys says it isn't being made by that company anymore and he has no other source for it. So is Falernum defunct? I got 1 bottle at home - is it the last bottle on earth or is there another source and if it is defunct with no other source what happens with all those tiki drinks that call for Falernum as an ingredient?

Falernum seems to one of those syrups that a pirate would not want to be without! I need to order some myself, now that the season is uopon us. My Don the Beachcomber Drink book has many drinks that require the Falernum. Below is some additional info.

If anyone knows of a local source in L.A. - as the above info indicates they are going to be distributing soon across the u.s. let me know. I'd rather drive to buy it then deal with mail order, but if there is no other way I will resort to mail order. I still have a whole new bottle of it so I won't actually need to replace mine for awhile.

I was just at Hi-Times Liquor about a 15 minute drive, and there are 7 bottles of Da Vinci Classic Caribbean Falermun Syrup, 750ml bottle for $6.99+tax.

Hi-Times Cellars / Hi-Times Liquor
250 Ogle Street
Costa Mesa, CA 92627
949-650-8463
Their website:
Hi-Times

Hope this helps.

I haven't checked any of the supplied links yet (I will as soon as I post this) but just wanted to add that I'm having a hell of a time finding some ingredients myself. Of course, I'm in a smaller town in South Carolina, but... Does anyone know of a decent Maraschino Liqueur? I'm gonna have to order a friggin' CASE of Orange Bitters from Fee's Bros. just to have ANY!
Perhaps we should start a thread concerning Availablity and Quality of different brands of some of the Harder-to-Find ingredients, eh? I might do that. Hope everyone will contribute.

We should have this in CT by mid July. I can always send a bottle to anyone who needs it.

I just spoke with a fine lady at Fees Bros, as it's time to restock on Orange Bitters and a few other things. Turns out that they now make Falernum (new product).


I'll probably have her throw a bottle into my order, but as all Fees products are non-alcoholic, I'll probably still try to track down the Velvet stuff when it ever comes out...

Aloha,

Vic

God I Love Those Fee Bros.! I guess I love the Fee Sister, too. Is that who answers the phone whenever I call 'em? Don't Squeeze... Use Fee's! Okay... Do Squeeze! But Use Fee's, Too!

Aloha,
Another Vic

Here's a little (secret)...KAVA KING (BUSTED!) here on TC has his own private stash of VINTAGE Sazerac Falernum (the authentic, namely alcoholic variety) from the very last production run. I heard upwards of a case of the stuff. This stuff is quite valuable...it, after all is the real, original thing.

I had tried to find this on the site, and could not. Tonight I found I had it bookmarked. So here is where you can order Falernum online: DaVinci Falernum The shipping is pretty high, so I tried different quantities to see where it went up and bought the most bottles I could at the base shipping. I think it was 3.
