Default Zaya (Trinidad) Available in SW FL?

Hello all,

Newb here. I live in the Ft. Myers area, and am looking (but not finding) the reconstituted Zaya Gran Reserva from Trinidad. Does anyone know where I could pick some up in Ft. Myers/Cape Coral?

Thanks,
Keith

Welcome, kravnh!

I can't help with Florida, but many FL'ers here on The MOR will jump in I'm sure.

No as I'm from Vancouver but good luck with your search...

kravnh, welcome to the forums. Please take a few minutes and introduce yourself in the Introduction section of the forums. I'm sure you'll find more useful information here and by introducing yourself you will find other rum lovers in your part of Florida.

As for the suggest to look at ABC, they pride themselves on filling special requests so if you don't see it on the shelf ask the sales person and I'm confident that they will try to have it the next time you are in the store.

You might also want to check Total Wine.... their store in Pembroke Pines, FL, sells the Zaya from Trinidad for about $27.

Here is a link to their web site: http://www.totalwine.com/Main.aspx

Pembroke Pines is on the other side of the state, if my memory serves me correctly.

Oops! I meant to write that since the Pembroke Pines location sells it, perhaps the Total Wine store in Ft. Myers sells it too.

That is a real possibility. It never hurts to ask and it is one of the main reasons stores add new products to the shelf.
