Where to buy Maraschino liqueur?

Diallo Jun 5, 2008 12:37 PM

Anyone have any suggestions on where I could buy Maraschino liqueur? I need it to make some Aviator cocktails. I've looked in ABC stores in Virginia, where I live, but haven't had any luck. Any suggestions on where I could find this in D.C.?

    Hi Diallo,

    We are the national importers of Luxardo Maraschino, and that is an absolute must in the Aviation (personally, one of my favorite cocktails).

    DeanGold is right about Constantine being the distributor and you can have a liquor store order from them.

    Also, there is a great retailer in DC called The Wine Specialist. I called there just now, and they are out of stock, but they can get it in next day. Their number is 202.833.0707.

    In VA, we do sell the Maraschino, but it is not "listed" so stores have to special order from the state. The State has the Luxardo Maraschino in stock, so your local liquor store should be able to order it quickly.

    Feel free to email me if you need any further help - ken@preissimports.com

      Luxardo is carried {Wholesale} by Constatine Wines and Spirits and winebow. With that info, maybe a local store can special order it for you. I am not aware how the VA state run stores handle special orders.

        I believe that Calvert Woodley sells Stock brand. For Luxardo try Cleveland Park Liquors and Chevy Chase Wine & Spirits and Ace Beverage.
