Featuring you say? Yes. Featuring, as in every whiskey available in Minnesota. That is a lot of whiskey. utopiasTo show just how serious they are about whiskey Ace Spirits is having a legendary whiskey giveaway contest. Just how legendary? Click the link for full details, but names like Pappy Van Winkle 20 Yr, George T. Stagg, and Eagle Rare 17 Yr Rye should pique your interest.

The whiskey and craft beer market has been exploding and while there are other specialty craft beer stores, no one has given whiskey the focus it needs and deserves.
-Louis Dachis, Ace Spirits

No good liquor store is complete without a well stocked craft beer section. To make sure the beer gets the tender loving care it so deserves they’ve brought in beer veteran Seneca Berg, formerly of Falls Liquor. The new store hosts weekly beer tastings on Friday and Saturday evenings. Harriet Brewing’s Divine Occulust is currently on tap. And keep an eye out for special beer events like this Utopias tasting.

It is worth mentioning that Ace Spirits has a great online setup for shopping from home. As I type this I’ve already put one bottle of WL Weller Antique Bourbon in my digital shopping cart and I’m browsing the selection of American rye whiskey. Think I can have it delivered on a Sunday?

I really dig the Ace Spirits concept of picking one thing and doing it well. Many local liquor stores are freaking out about large liquor retailers moving to the state and edging them out on prices. Ace Spirits doesn’t seem worried about the big competition. Ace is focused on mastering the service and selection of one growing sector of the liquor market. Wine shops mastered this concept a long time ago, some beer stores in town, as well. I can’t believe a whiskey focused store has taken this long.
