Where to buy pistachio extract?

Googling this shows me results, but where can I find pistachio extract in NYC (preferably manhattan or close to it)?

I hear kalustyan's has almond paste... But extract as well?
Is it common enough to be at whole foods?
Not sure if any country uses it particularly to search out specialty shops...

Any advice would be appreciated!

  1. I would call Kalustyan's and confirm whether or not they have it. They have something on their site listed as "pistachio flavor" but I don't think that's what you want.

    Try also NY Cake on West 22nd. Call and ask them as well as they have "pistachio flavor" on their site.

    I think what you will find is that you can easily acquire artificial pistachio flavor but real pistachio extract is harder to find & more expensive.
