Welcome to the first monthly bar acquisition update. Each month I'll at least try to remember what I've obtained for my bar. This month, it's pretty easy to remember, since most of it came in recently:
I took a jaunt downtown to visit fellow WS member, Joe Riley at Ace Beverage in NW DC after a meeting. While it's not the biggest store I've seen, as he said, "We make due with what we've got." That he does. They've got an amazing selection of some great liquors and wines that I haven't been able to find anywhere else, including all of the Del Magey Mezcal offerings, Marteau absinthe, the full line of Haus Alpenz offerings and a ton more. I took the opportunity to complete my Haus Alpenz collection as well as pick up some other syrups I'd been meaning to get.
Along with that, I received some nice goody bags throughout the month too.
