amari / amaros in Vancouver

Hi All,
Anyone know if its possible to find Amaro Montenegro, Braulio, or any other Amaris in Vancouver?

    Ahh, amari. One of my favorite things to drink.

    Montenegro is available in Vancouver, though availability can be spotty due to demand. Legacy Liquor usually has it, as does 16th St Liquor in West Vancouver.

    I have never seen Braulio.

    Other amari available that I have seen/bought myself are: Nonino, Cynar, Punt e Mes (I know it's a hybrid), Ramazzotti, Averna, Fernet, Campari and Aperol.

      Legacy, eh? Didn't even know it existed (Vancouver born and bred, but have been living abroad past few years). THanks for the tips.

        Legacy opened up less than a year ago. They're owned by one of the big hospitality conglomerates I think, but I can't remember which one. Prices are not great, but for some reason they have the best selection of a lot of spirits. The aforementioned 16th St Liquor in West Van has a similar selection but for considerably less in some cases. Carpano Antica vermouth is $80+ at Legacy but $67 at 16th St.

          Legacy is owned by Granville Entertainment Group (The Roxy, Doolin's et al.) .
