What is the difference between Great Spirits and the Alabama ABC?
Good question! The Alabama ABC is a state-run retailer that is allowed to only sell liquor products that are managed by the Alabama state warehouse system. That is, they are allowed to sell only certain liquors. Because of the alcohol control laws employed by the state of Alabama, Great Spirits is also only supplied liquor through the state warehouse system. However, since we are a private retail entity, we are theoretically able to acquire a wider variety of products than just any ABC store. For more information, check the Alabama ABC website: http://www.abc.alabama.gov.
What does it mean to be supplied by ABC?
It means that we have no control over our liquor supply line. The government of our state has full control over what products we are able to get and how efficiently we are able to get them. This also means that while we are happy to try to get that special bottle of liquor for you, we have to warn all of our customers that long waits with possible disappointment in the end are often inevitable for Alabama imbibers.
Why don't you carry this bottle that I want?
If it is a bottle of wine, it is either distributed in our area or not (Alabama law mandates that private stores have to go through wine distributors). While we have a pretty extensive selection, we cannot possibly stock every wine available in our area. Nevertheless, will be happy to check all our resources to try to find that bottle you fell in love with at a local restaurant or while on vacation. Either way, if it is in our area, we would be happy to rustle up a bottle for you!
If it is a beer, it is most likely because it is not currently being distributed locally (Alabama law mandates that private stores have to go through beer distributors). If it is in the area, we probably just did not have room for it on the shelf! We will still be glad to get you some of it.
If it is a bottle of liquor, it is most likely because the bottle is not available in our state. See first question.
