If you’re lucky enough to live near a large liquor store like Party Source or Binny’s then you’re more than likely able to find enough Whiskey, Bourbon or Scotch to satisfy your craving for a new bottle at your leisure. However, for the rest of us that aren’t so lucky (and don’t want to spend hours in the car) I have found a few good websites that not only sell online but ship to our dear state of Ohio.
A few notes about buying booze online – make sure you check the website to see if they ship to your state. Also, I would recommend having it shipped to your work address because it can’t be left on a doorstep and must be signed for by someone over the age of 21. Lastly, keep an eye out for free shipping offers if you purchase over a certain dollar amount. On occasion adding another bottle will earn you free shipping on both and almost covers the cost of the extra bottle. Below are a few online stores that I have had ordered from or plan to in the very near future…
*** UPDATED March 2013 ***
The Liquor Barn
Offering 2 locations and the ability to ship to Ohio these guys have over 4,000 different spirits, an easy to use website and some harder to find bottles. Their customer service is fast to respond to issues and I have placed several orders with them, all of which have been packaged and shipped quickly. I highly recommend ordering from The Liquor Barn.
Binny’s Beverage Depot:
Not to beat a dead horse but this store is amazing and fortunate enough for those not near the store you can order online.
The Party Source:
Similar Binny’s if you can get to the store it’s amazing but fear not, they do sell online but I have had folks mention that the shipping can be a bit pricey. I guess it just depends on how bad you want the bottle.
I haven’t ordered from this retailer yet but they have a 27,000 ft Warehouse which allows a solid selection and ship to 37 different states (including Ohio). Another good option while you are searching for that hard-to-find bottle.
Wines For Today:
Manhattan based Wine & Spirit Retailer with a huge selection of value wines and spirits. I managed to find 2 bottles of the elusive Sazerac Rye Whiskey 6yr.
LoveScotch brings to you the best range of scotch and spirits at lowest prices. Select from a vast range of liquor brands and also include a personal note with your gift package.
For Whiskey Lovers:
This site has all kinds of good information not just the online store including blogs, reviews and information on distilleries.
Pacific Online Spirits:
This place has a killer selection but some of the usually hard to find bottles go out of stock quickly. It still carries some unique options especially for Scotch lovers.
