One of the oldest bottle shops in Sydney; offering a truly amazing range of product. (Albeit, they didn't stock Gosling's Black Seal Rum when I visited last week). Perhaps not the cheapest place to buy a case of standard Aussie lager, but that's not why you come here. If you want a huge choice of spirits, wines, liqueurs and, yes, beers, from around the world this is your location. If you value quality and helpful, knowledgeable advice, I recommend you consider registering for their club membership which provides a discount on your purchases (as well as an invitation to their Member's Christmas Party, select tastings and, sometimes, their Burns Night Supper).
Great range of boutique and beers. Good whiskey. Some quality wine choices. They do tastings and events, helpful staff. Only problem is, this place is a drain on your wallet if you keep perusing those shelves!
