Wine also is a product that changes on a constant basis with the passing of each year. New vintages are introduced and the old ones replaced. This makes it hard on the customer who found that wine one year that they loved and the next year’s vintage may taste very different due to the many different conditions that affect the production of wines. The staff at Wainwright Liquor & Cold beer are always at hand to help you select from their 1000 plus varieties of fine wine and ports. And you may find your next favorite wine to share with family and friends on that next special occasion.
Our scotch selection is one of the best in the area if not in the province of Alberta. Single malt scotch is one of the areas that we take great pride in. With more than 100 different varieties to ponder over, the region of Scotland or your favorite distillery will sure to be there. Or if you are a collector of rare single malts we have them also, ranging in price from a few hundred dollars to five thousand and up.
Beer, wine and scotch are not the only things we carry. To add to this exceptional selection already there are many whiskeys to choose form including Canadian whiskey, American bourbons, Irish whiskey and some small batch specialty whiskeys that are very interesting in their own way. Rum with its many styles and blends is one you are sure to spend some time looking at. Vodka is another product that has enjoyed double digit growth over the past years especially in the flavored and ultra premium brands.
The bad boy of booze is Tequila and we have some of the best of the best in the blue agava line with around 105 brands in stock. Cognac, Brandy, Port and Sherry are all well represented with a good selection in each area.
