Cocktail ingredients Utah update –November 2010

If you’re looking for cocktail ingredients on clearance, there does not appear to be much of interest in the Utah DABC State Liquor Stores this month.  If you see anything good at your local state store, post a response to this article.  As far as Special Price Adjustments (SPA) go, this month does not offer a whole lot of excitement (see next paragraph), but November is usually a lean month in anticipation of many specials in December, including pre-New Year’s price adjustments on sparkling wines.  Watch this space in early December for a sparkling wine update.  See the list “Suggested by the author” below for information on how to use the Utah DABC website.

This month is not a total desert in the cocktail arena, however.  If you’re into Bourbons, Bulleit Bourbon Frontier Whiskey® (CS# 017086) is available for $22 ($5 off) and if you like something a little pricier, Knob Creek® (CS# 019226) is available for $29 ($4 off).  There is the usual assortment of flavored Vodkas and flavored and spiced Rums.  Hidden among the Rums is one of my favorites, Gosling’s Black Seal Rum® (CS# 042566) is available for $14 ($2 off).  Tequila lovers have a little more to be happy about.  There is a variety of high-end Tequilas marked down this month that you can discover for yourself by clicking through to the “SPA Product List” to open a price book in PDF format that shows all of the markdowns for the current month; then search on “tequila”. 


  1. Thanks for the Bulleit note. The one thing showing up everywhere are the Christmas items. Look above the top shelf. There's tons of gift packages with a bottle of liquor and a set of glasses/shaker/who knows what for the same price as the bottle without the gift. Some of them are not bad at all.

  2. Thanks for the tip! Those products are usually at the beginning of the product list, and can be really good deals, as you pointed out. I'll be sure to mention them in my December post.
