    No booze in stores as far as I know.

    Shipping is only $7 though for up to a carton, so pretty reasonable
    A number of the Aldi stores in Sydney sell liquor in store in a small section. Hope the ones I go to have the Four Roses.

    Yeah, the local store near me has a liquor section.

    BJW, let me know how you go, as time ran away from me today and I didnt get a chance to get out.

    If I cant find it in store tomorrow I am just going to order online.

    I read in the catalogue that the Queensland stores don't have liquor section.

    I went to two stores near me yesterday, both have very small liquor sections, both with no four roses in sight.

    Might have to go the online order here too. That's as good a price as I've seen!

    Finally something from Four Roses is available here for a reasonable price. That's good.

    Unfortunately Aldi Liquor don't deliver to the West Coast. That's bad.

    I question if it's a permanent line. My guess is they're bringing it in as a once-off via the UK (the fact it is 700ml and not 750ml gives this away). From what I understand they're allocating stock to a lot of their current markets, so it makes no sense to open here with small batch.

    I am sure your right Cam. But I am not going to complain.

    Local store had nothing, so I am going to guess its online only. So I ordered 3 and a bottle of scotch for the girl.

    Finished off the last couple of pours of Old Virginia 6yo last night. Mixed it with coke after a long afternoon in the garden. Moved onto some Heaven Hill Special Select (SB bottling) - a truely supurb pour!

    I put in my Aldi order for Four roses, and also grabbed a 1l Makers Mark (45% !) . Grabbed a few cheap sparkling wines etc for the Mrs. All shipped for $7 postage. Very reasonable really.

    Let us know when you get the makers, Ive always wanted to order some but was never sure if its actually the 45% juice or theyve just used the wrong research.
