Cardenal Mendoza jerez brandy - bay area retailers?

Hi Chowhounds:

I'm looking for a bay area liquor store that has Cardenal Mendoza Spanish brandy. K&L and BevMo don't seem to stock it. I'd like to start trying out the Jerez brandies, had a delicious few glasses in Costa Rica during a recent vacation. Any tips?

    Have you called Spanish Table to see if they carry it?

      No luck, they carry only wines. I'll try a few more liquor stores and report back if I find any.

      Beltramo's in Menlo Park shows it on its website,

        Interesting, as I've frequently bought it at BevMo in the past.

        Be that as it may, D&M on Filmore in SF has it on their website -- see http://www.dandm.com/category_product...

          Thanks for the tips - I'll check out Beltramo's and D&M. Just checked again on the BevMo site, no dice. They do not list it as an out-of-stock item either, so perhaps it has been discontinued (or the web site is incorrect). Beltramo's also has Gran Duque D'Alba Jerez Brandy, which is next on my list to try.

          The D&M buying club also looks great, thanks again!
