    Places to buy bourbon in DC?

    I'm flying into Washington, DC on July 2 for a wedding on July 3. I was hoping to pick up some bourbons that aren't available up here; is there anyone here who can recommend a good store in that area?

    Thanks,
    Will

    This is just over the D.C. line. Not the best selection of the other county stores, but this one is close to D.C.

    The Wine Specialist
    2115 M St. NW
    Washington DC
    Fairly good selection, often has speciality bottles (Stagg, Tribute, etc.), higher prices than Mont. Co.

    Schneiders of Capitol Hill
    300 Mass. Ave, N.W.
    Washington, DC
    Very good selection but rarely gets special bottlings. Prices just a tad lower than Wine Specialist.

    There are other good places (such as farther out in MD and in VA) but the above are in or very close to DC.

    TB:

    I'm planning a trip up to Montgomery County soon. Which store has the best selection in your opinion?

    Burtonsville, MD 20866

    If you can make it up to Carrol County, try
    Cranberry Liquors
    405 North Center Street
    Westminster, MD

    If you make it out to Anne Arundel county, try:

    Edgewater Liquors
    58 W. Central Ave.
    Edgewater, MD

    or

    Bay Ridge Wine and Spirits
    111 Hillsmere Dr
    Annapolis, MD

    Mont. Co County liquor stores and Edgewater have the lowest prices I've ever seen in the VA, DC MD area.

    Gotta throw in a plug for the Burtonsville MonCo store. Some rarities, including VOB and Stagg (two bottles left as of yesterday), and very good prices (OGD 114 was $20, etc).

    No such thing as 30-year VW bourbon. Must be a missprint.

    The Montgomery Co. store in Burtonsville has the largest selection in the Montgomery co. The manager, George Shelley is very knowledgeable and will special order anything he can from the distribution network. The entire Mont. Co. network received 8 cases of G.T. Stagg. The Burtonsville store, because of George’s persistence, received 4 cases. He now only has 2 bottles left. This is a picture of George. Ask for him when you go.

    How about the other places in Maryland? Any near Elkton? Route 40? I see a lot of stores around there but wonder about the selection. Can you offer any help?

    Re: Places to buy bourbon in DC?

    Just wanted to say thanks for the suggestions! The Wine Specialist turned out to be right across the street from my hotel, and I picked up a bottle of Van Winkle Lot B and Black Maple Hill 11yr old (no idea if this will be good or not, but I figured "What the hell?"). I hope to crack into the Van Blankle tonight!

    ...I hope to crack into the Van Blankle tonight!
    A note: when we refer to "Van Blankle", we're not talking about just any Lot B, but rather Randy Blank's (doubleblank) single-barrel version of it, selected last summer. The only place to get that is directly from him. Hope to see you at the Festival!
