In the deep South end of Calgary is a little bar called Mr Schnapps that carries a good selection. Included is ElDorado 21, Angostura 1824 and Zaya. It is hard to find a better grouping in the city.

Calgaryx, you mention a bar is serving up Zaya....
My wife will be visiting a friend in Calgary in August. Are there liquor stores there that carry Zaya?
Thanks!

I'm waiting for it to warm up a bit before I head to Calgary, but hope to make it up there this summer.

Rumrunner, there are many liquor stores selling Zaya. Here is a link to the Alberta distributor. The link allows you to search for any spirit and it will tell you which store carries it.

CSN Liquor Store has the best selection of Rum and Scotch in the city. They will even let you sample a few things. Last trip to Calgary They let me try the El dorado 21 yr old as well as several fine old Scotches.

Willow Park used to have a decent selection but now they seem to ignore the rum.
