For far too long, if you lived in Park Circle, you either had to head to Sam’s or some out-of-the-way ABC store to get your favorite spirit. But last year, something wonderful happened. We were blessed with a brand new liquor store of our own, Barrel House Spirits. Located at the corner of Virginia and Empire avenues, Barrel House has a solid lineup of bottom-shelf to top-shelf spirits, from the inexpensive, small batch bourbon Evan Williams 1762 to the just-shy-of-great Plantation’s 3 Stars Artisanal Rum to the tony Casamigos Tequila. Bonus points: The staff is always courteous and friendly, and if you get lucky, there just might be a beautiful collie hanging out behind the counter.
