New England - that's in the US

Where it all began in the colonies, rum is again becoming the spirit of choice. Have you seen anything on the shelves that shouldn't be missed by others.

I ordered 2 bottles yesterday afternoon. Then realized that 3 bottles probably costs the same to ship as 2 so I emailed and called the store. This morning I got a call and increased my order. You probably won't find another deal like this this year.

$5 a bottle shipping to Chicago isn't bad.

Thanks seth for letting us know.

That's a great price from Seth. I agree, it's got to be the deal of the year for those in the mainland USA that he ships to. I'm jealous!

Outstanding. Well, I am into it for 3 right off the bat. With the one I have on hand, I've just dollar cost averaged my XO "stock" down to $65 a bottle, lol. If your price stays stable at $69, I'll be a steady customer and picking up some *every time* it goes on sale.

What a rumlicious early Christmas gift to myself.

Default It's just not fair, is it?

Something must be seriously wrong with the world when you can sell the Zacapa XO for under USD 50 in the United States, yet here in the UK you'd be lucky to find it for under GBP80 (about USD 130), and I've even seen it listed on one UK website this morning at GBP 108.50!!! (USD 177).

I paid GBP 65 (USD 106) for my bottle in Heathrow duty free recently and I thought I'd got a bargain.

You're right that Shoppers Vineyard has some good prices. Taxes, duties and profit can significantly raise the price of spirits around the world.
