Hey all, so 2014 has treated us pretty well so far, and we are rolling into Autumn pretty bloody fast! We welcome the cooler weather (we have no choice) with a few little activities to spice things up a bit.
A few weeks back we had Alastair from Whisky Galore fly up from Christchurch to host a Whisky tasting in store. It was such a wicked night, we tried 7 different single malts and weirdly enough I loved every single one… 20 of our loyal customers attended ($40/head) and the general consensus was that we should do it all the time!
We also have our fancy new 8 tap craft beer station, ready to fill your “Fitzroy Firkins” with something lovely and golden and bold. We make sure the range on the taps is ever-changing so you can always try something new. So far the favourites have been Parrot Dog’s BitterBitch and Liberty’s Yakima Monster. Right now we have an American Import from Ballast Point on there as well as Epic, Black Dog, Stoke, Hancock & Co and Mountain Goat.
Personally, I am feeling a little bit chuffed. Last year we won the Sel Granger Memorial award for our innovation, drive and representation of the Liquorland brand. We have also been awarded “Top Retailer” in the SOBA beer awards, and I was a finalist in the Halamoana awards for “Best Liquor Rep”, so things are going well!
And… I climbed the mountain for the second time the other day. Ticking boxes!
All showing off aside though, we are having a bloody good time looking after you all at the moment, so thanks for your loyalty and support. We also have a whole lot coming up so if you have a moment, go to the home page here and join our database – we will email you each month to let you know what event we want you to come to. We won’t do it too often so you won’t get annoyed with us – promise…
