    ETL Availability?

    Trying to replace a recently emptied ETL, I visited three local, high-volume liquor stores. All were out; citing the fact that the distributor / distillery was not supplying any at the present. All said they inquired about an availability date and all were told that none could be forecast.

    I've heard that Elmer's health is not good and he hasn't been able readily available to pick barrels. Has anyone else seen local ETL shortages?

    Last I checked there was ETL for miles in Central KY.

    I know that at the retail store I work at in Central KY the distributor, Republic, has been out of ETL for weeks. Not sure why though.

    Re: ETL Availability?

    During my hunt for High West Campfire this morning, I saw ETL on the shelves of every place I hit . . . but I'm going to follow this thread as I'm actually out and just procrastinating replenishment!

    Both still in stock at TPS, but they'd be one of the last to run out I'd imagine.

    Re: ETL Availability?

    It's still available in their private barrel program so I'd imagine that there is nothing to this other then maybe a distributor being out of stock or something like that. In the stores in the Chicago market I haven't noticed ETL being a "big" mover and up until a couple years ago I could find wax top bottles from the early 2000's still sitting on the shelf.

    About 100 bottles in the system in Montgomery County, Maryland. A few months ago there was a shortage, but clearly we're back up to healthy levels.

    Re: ETL Availability?

    It has gotten a bit more sparse in Wisconsin, but I can still find it.

    It seems to always be available here in SC and in VA when I go up there where it is a steal compared to SC. Often on sale for $25 a bottle.
