Amherst Wines and Spirits (Amherst, MA)


Amherst Wines and Spirits©
Amherst Wines and Spirits is not only my favorite liquor store, but they recently got a big boost for one simple thing:  they carry BenRiach 16 and can order BenRiach 20!  I don't know how to express the happiness...that said, it's $120 for a bottle of the 20 year old, so I have established the "Jeremy Gets BenRiach Fund," now accepting generous donations.  Thanks in advance!

In all seriousness though, Amherst Wines is a great place, with a great selection.  The staff is incredible, extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and most of all, helpful.  If they don't know something, they don't make something up, they look it up.  I've spent several minutes on the phone with them asking little questions, and they never seem even remotely put out by it; rather, they seem to relish the opportunity to inform and educate.  I owe them a great debt of gratitude.  If you're in the area, and need a bottle of fine wine, Scotch, Bourbon, or other spirit, I absolutely recommend that you stop in.  They also hold weekly tastings on Saturdays from 2:00pm to 5:00pm, with something different each week (this week is ros├ęs).
