Grappa in Minnesota?

  • 7

Help! I want to send some good Italian grappa to two friends. But I live in California and found out I cannot order it and have it shipped to Minnesota. Can anyone tell me where I can buy Italian Grappa in Minnesota so I can have it delivered to my friends?

  1. You're such a nice friend to persevere, despite the crazy alcohol-shipping laws in this state. Here's a recent thread on who sells grappa in the Twin Cities.

    I know I've seen grappa at Surdyk's, and they will ship.

    If price is no object, you could check with Buon Giorno. It's a high-end restaurant, deli, and wine store. I don't know if they have grappa, but I suspect that they do and that they carry only the best (and priciest). Also, I'm not sure if they'd ship, but you could call and find out.

      Thanks! I will check out Buon Giorno's. Surdyk's seems to have only domestic grappa online, but I will call them and see if they have anything else.

    2. I mentioned in another related thread that Thomas Liquor on Grand Avenue and St. Paul has a very nice grappa with almond essence. This is the only grappa they carry, but I love it.

      1. Haskell's lists a few Italian grappas on their website. Their very-difficult-to-navigate website, I might add. But I remember seeing some in their store, as well.

          YAY! Finally figured out how to find them on the Haskell's site. Not exactly the ones I was hoping for--they have only Gaja and no Jacopo Poli or some of the others. But these will do just fine. I have already placed the order. And I am going to call Buon Giorno (no website) to see what they have for next time. Thanks Everyone!

            Buon Giorno's Wine Shop has a wide selection of excellent grappas. At a price, as noted earlier. But many choices for many tastes.

              And they will deliver..... they do a great job!
