Tucked into a narrow storefront on 7th Avenue sits a little shop called Carnegie Spirits Ltd. To call this place a liquor store would be an insult.
This is one of the remaining gems of the New York spirits shop community. The knowledgeable staff is attentive, confident and well dressed. Wine is the specialty here, but in the far right corner you will find 3 or 4 well stocked shelves of high end rum.
The selection on the day we popped in was impressive. Neisson Blanc, Barcelo Imperial and Grand Anejo, Pampero Anniversario, El Dorado 25, Diplomatico Reserva, Barbancourt 8 and 15, Clement XO, Clement Cuvee Homere and the entire Flor de Cana line was represented. If you find yourself in New York and need to stock up, this is definitely a quality option.
