Best source for online liquor and wine sales?
I live in a pretty rural area, so purchasing quality spirits is sometimes pretty difficult.
Can anyone recommend one or several online businesses with a good selection that sells online?
There are many that do...but is there any that stand out?
I have used Park Avenue Liquor in NYC in the past, but their website has been so buggy recently.
As I am sure you know, shipping alcoholic beverages may be legal, illegal, or something in-between . . . all depending upon where YOU live.
That said, for distillates, I second the suggestion of K&L (for single malts, exclusive single barrel Bourbons, Tequila), but would add D&M Liquors (http://dandm.com -- great for Cognacs, Armagnacs, rare bottlings of single malt Scotch, etc.).
Since you've used Park Ave in NYC, here are several others:
Chambers Street Wines
I like Hi Time Wines, if you are in the Southwest they have great shipping pricing ($10 for 12 bottles) and they deliver in 1-2 days. They are based in CA so they have a fantastic selection. They are my favorite
K & L will not ship spirits to certain states - I know AZ is one of them they will not ship spirits to (although wine is okay)
I have also used DrinkupNY - they have a good selection as well, probably good to use if you are East Coast - they do carry a few items that are tough to get on the west coast.
