Question for places that serve liquor Wed, 12/18/13 1:31 PM (permalink)
How many brands do you usually stock of each type of spirit? Do you stick with one distributor and just carry the brands that they distribute, or do you try to carry everything that someone might conceivably ask for? Any pointers on what you consider *essential*?
I have a U.K. tea room sort of theme going on, with a selection of tea based cocktails, and I'm thinking I should definitely carry brands from the U.K., but do I need to carry Jim Beam, Makers Mark, Bulleit, AND Wild Turkey, for instance, when it comes to someone wanting a medium-tier Bourbon drink? How do you all handle instances of limited startup budgets and limited space? Any advice?
(Background: this is a small space, seating 39 people in the front room with the bar, with a 42 occupancy performance room in the back.) How understanding are people, generally, when it comes to *their* brand not being available, in various types of spaces? i.e. this is not a dive bar, but it's not an upscale bar either.
