I'm trying to acquire a larger pool of sites to choose from when I need to order booze or other misc booze bits. BevMo is pretty much the answer without a doubt, but when I wanna find Coruba dark in a 750ml...well that's much harder. For the most part its a bunch of local stores that will ship, but aren't the big sites like DrinkUpNY, etc. Mostly I'm concerned about getting Coruba, which for some reason is usually available in 1 liter amounts.

Is anybody stowing some really sweet sites that I've yet to come across?

I've ordered from a bunch over the past couple years and they've all treated me well. My usual go-to is Hi-Time. I believe they're the only ones on this list that sell Coruba.

Hi-Time Wine Cellar -- Lots of rums and everything else
http://www.hitimewine.net

DrinkUpNY -- Cool variety
http://www.drinkupny.com

The Party Source -- Great bourbon selection
http://www.thepartysource.com

Internet Wines (aka Randall's) -- You never know what they'll have
http://www.internetwines.com

K&L Wines -- A more highly curated selection with a lot of exclusive items
http://www.klwines.com

Liquorama -- Occasionally has things others don't.
http://liquorama.net

I wouldn't hesitate to order from any of these. One of my favorites -- Shoppers Vineyard -- sadly no longer ships. But if you're ever in New Jersey...

3 of the 6 I'm familiar with, but I'll check the others out. Thanks! My buddy bought me a great bottle of Havana Club 15 from www.masterofmalt.com

Thanks for those links especially the one for hitime. Lots of stuff in there that is much cheaper than total wine even with the shipping.

You should also check out Beltramos in Northern California. They have a huge liquor and wine store, have a great inventory of rums (including 750 ml Coruba) and ship free in California for orders of $250 or more. Their entire inventory is online at http://www.beltramos.com . The family has been in the busines since the 1870's and even supplied wine to the church during prohibition!

K&L is good (one is near Beltramos) but their selection is smaller and are generally more expensive than Beltramos. Beltramos is usually cheaper than Bevmo and has a much better selection.

Wine Chateau is a good retailer as well

+1 for the above: Drink up NYC and Beltramos

Caskers, one of my favorite new online stores, is running a promotion right now until Labor Day. Spend $150, get free shipping.

They've got some interesting rums, including the El Dorado Single Barrels. They have a better selection of whiskey, though, including some excellent bourbons.

The site is organized kinda weird, so just type "rum" or "bourbon" or whatever in the search box.

Here's the link:
Caskers

Full disclosure: The link I included earns me credit if you buy something. But it don't cost you nuttin.

Is there anyway to view the caskers site without creating an account?

I don't think so. But you can always use a throwaway email if you don't want to use your real one for some reason.

I haven't found them to be spammy, so I don't think there's much risk in signing up.

Here in Florida getting spirits shipped to you can be tricky. I have had good fortune in the past with Drink up NY, and Internet Wine and Spirits - they ship by FedEx and an adult signature is required. However, since I've shamed most all of the retailers in my area to carry what I want . . . I've had no need for orderi9ng on line. Except for Fee Bros. . . . I still order from them.

I wish FL retailers could ship OUT some of that rum. Like Kohala Bay.

Giving Hi Time Wine's a shot

their selection is amazing and they are really cheap shipping in the SW

Got an extra 3 bottles and came in 30 bucks cheaper compared to Beltramo's

(on an order of 24 bottles)

I buy from HiTime at least once every few months or so. Always great service. Forrest Cokely, who used to post on here a lot, worked there for a long time.

Just wanted to report back and say how great Hi Times was - great packaging, fast shipping (1 day to AZ) and the best prices anywhere

Just realized they carry small hand items as well, good times
