Collecting Booze

Hunting Elusive Alcohols

Liquor Collection / Looking for a cool local liquor store with a good vibe? Check out the Liquor Collection at Ward Warehouse. Ming and George, the proprietors, are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They will hunt down that elusive bison grass vodka that you’ve been pining for. The Collection also has a wide variety of island spirits, including locally produced rums from Maui & Kauai, Okolehau, Nani Moon honey mead and Kona Gold coffee liquor. Beyond their extensive selection of specialty drinks, there is an amazing selection of beer–over 400 different varieties. Our recent favorite pick is the 360 Degree Double Chocolate Vodka, which features a reusable, ceramic corked glass bottle (you can recycle the stopper if you like–it comes with a mailer attached) and a rich chocolate brew inside. Don’t miss their sale bin with half-price bottles and private selections for a steal.
