What's Not To Liquor?
Twin Liquors brings back popular weekend 'Dollar Sale' in San Antonio
After all the barbecues, late-night porch hangs, and lake trips that have San Antonians pouring through their summer stock of spirits, it's time for a refill. And this ain't no farmers market run — since these bottles are made to last years, this popular splurge may set visitors up with everything they need til the next one.
Twin Liquors, a family-owned store based in Texas, has announced that its annual "Dollar Sale" will return to all stores from August 24-26. That's not quite a dollar-per-bottle deal; The store-wide sale marks every item of 750 milliliters or more down to its "absolute lowest," according to a news release, and adds $1. Still, visitors practically tore the door off its hinges last year, and surely still have leftovers.
This deal will be especially useful for high-end bottles like collectible wines and rare whiskies, which are priced for luxury — and designer shoppers in the fashion world know how those sample sales go. This may also be some cocktail connoisseurs' opportunity to stock up on premium spirits for specialty cocktails.
After 10 years, Twin Liquors knows how to turn the sale into a community event. Marketplace locations (larger stores, listed below) will kick the sale off with free breakfast tacos and Lalo Tequila cocktails, on August 24 beginning at 10 am on Thursday. There will also be samples available to try before you buy.
There are two local Marketplace stores: one in North Central San Antonio at Bitters Marketplace (12955 San Pedro Ave. #500), and one in the Alamo Heights area (999 E. Basse Rd. Ste. 155).
