As the days are getting shorter and colder, nothing warms you up like truly getting into the holiday spirit. With its dazzling array of scotch, bourbon, tequila, and wine, Martin Brothers Wine & Spirits has something for everyone. In operation since 1985, this New York City staple has the largest selection of single malt scotch in the Upper West Side, and its knowledgeable staff is more than happy to provide recommendations. Whether you're looking for the right tequila to make the perfect Bloody Maria, or to enjoy a nice, aromatic snifter full, this store caters to every type of palette.
With the holiday season just around the corner, you will probably find yourself in need of champagne to bring to the office party, or to help ring in the new year. Martin Brothers Wine has a variety of options, from the peerless Dom Perignon Rose, which retails at $399.99, to the modestly priced, but still surprising, Jean Milan Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Brut for only $12.99.
For wine enthusiasts, the choices are numerous, but colder temperatures, and the foods associated them, require bolder, full bodied reds, such as an Italian Sangiovese or a bright, jammy California Pinot Noir. Alternately, with a tumbler of Booker’s True Barrel Bourbon ($63.99 a bottle) in hand, the stress of holiday shopping or a busy workday will simply melt away.
For whatever wine and spirits you need to keep you toasty, be sure to stop by Martin Brothers Wine & Spirits. The store has an extensive website that lists all of their stock, and the folks there will be more than happy to answer any questions over the phone. Call them at (212) 222-8218.
