Looking for Sazerac Rye in Orlando\Tampa Area

  • 9

I looked in every liquor store in Brevard county and no one stocks or seems willing to order Sazerac Rye, so I'm expanding my search to the Orlando/Tampa area.

If you've run across this elusive elixir, please tell me where. Thanks.

  1. Here's an e-mail address from the company's website. Maybe they can help you find a retailer. sazerac@bourbonwhiskey.com

      Thanks. I tried contacting The Sazerac Company already. Apparently, no one there answers the phone and several emails have yet to be answered.

        Try the Grapevine in Tampa. They have always been very customer service oriented when I have been there. Chris is one of the owners and she is great.

        12125 W Linebaugh Ave, Tampa - (813) 818-9463

    2. I found Sazerac Rye at Total Wine and More on Dale Mabry in Tampa about eight months ago. I have no idea whether they still carry it, but they did at that time. (I did not buy it because it was more expensive than some other ryes the store carried and I was using it as part of a very mixed drink, so I did not think that high quality mattered that much. However, I do recall the name because it was so unusual.)

        I stopped by Total Wine on Dale Mabry on Saturday and they had two bottles on the shelf. The Total Wine in Orlando apparently doesn't keep it on the shelf.

        They are planning on building a Total Wine in Melbourne which is only about 30 minutes south.

        Thanks for all the suggestions.

      2. It's a haul from Brevard County, but B-21 Fine Wines in Tarpon Springs stocks a huge variety of bourbon and rye, including Sazerac (last time I was there at least.)

        1. Try the Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky for info and leads on local retail outlets. At one time you were able to order (by the case) the 19-year stuff directly from them.

              Goto a liquor store. Ask the manager to look up the distributor in the catalog. Call the distributor and ask them what store in your area stocks it
