Hewitson Mermaids Muscadelle in NY/NJ area?
Anyone know where I can find Hewitson's Mermaids Muscadelle in the tri-state area? I enjoyed a very nice bottle in late '05 at the Mermaid Inn in NYC and have been on a quest to find it again ever since; unfortunately I can't find it anywhere.
I have been to the Hewitson site and contacted the two liquor stores listed in their NY stocklists only to find that those two places do not have the Muscadelle in stock.
Any advice on where to find it?
Since you live in or near Plainfield, two possible places you might contact come to mind: Liquor Locker, a mega store with a huge selection on Oak Tree Road in Edison, and Wine Country, a smaller (and more personal) store on Route 22 in North Plainfield. Either place might be able to special order it for you.
Thanks for the info! I actually found it a few places-- the Pennsylvania LCB site (http://www.lcb.state.pa.us/WebApp/Product_Management/psi_ProductInventory_Inter.asp?cdeNo=028204) listed a bunch of stores across the border... and there's an NJ liquor store in Madison (Bottle Hill Wine & Spirits aka http://www.winerx.com/) that has access to warehouses all over NJ. I went the latter route, paying a premium for it, but not having to worry about making a trek out west. ;-)
