Whers is a good store to buy bottles of tequila?
Coming to Phoenix for a few days from Ohio where the selection of tequila is terrible. Are there any stores with good selections of tequila (ideally with good prices, but selection is most important) in Phoenix. Thanks
I can't say that I really shop for tequila, but I do know that BevMo has a larger-than-most selection of liquor. AJ's (a high-end grocery chain here) also carries some interesting looking bottles of tequila, but might be pricey. Sorry I can't be more help.
Check the liquor sections of the large grocery stores and drugstore chains, too. They often get special deals on various brands of Mexican imports. (Albertsons/Osco is one of the few places where I regularly find Presidente brandy, at a good price.)
I agree with kittyfood about the supermarket sales. Sometimes they have better deals than BevMo. BevMo is great for seeing a wide selection. And they do carry many varities of tiny bottles (if maybe you want to try out certain brands without buying a full bottle).
Is there a particular brand you are looking for most? Personally I like Tres Generationes. Most stores charge anywhere from 40-50 for a 750mL bottle. I have gotten it at CVS for 29.99. Another local chain market we have here in LA is Super A and they often have this brand for that price.
Since you say selection is most important I would say BevMo if they have those there.
Some brands I have tried are:
Casadores (its okay)
We've been to the Sportsman's at Shea and Scottsdale Rd a few times. We were looking for a particular bottle of wine. They didn't sell it, but the clerk had seen it at a different chain and told us where we could find it. So even if they don't have exactly what you might need, they can probably point you to where you can get it.
