Make your way to the back corner of Victual and you’ll find Minnesota’s smallest liquor store. From Main Street, Crosby, take a stroll across the Victual patio and you’ll find the entrance. The space is small (think really big walk-in closet), but don’t be fooled—the floor-to-ceiling inventory rivals big box liquor stores. Here, every shelf is top shelf—unique artisan wine, liquors, and spirits from local or small-batch distilleries that you can’t easily find elsewhere.
Knowledgeable staff is available to answer your questions and offer samples as you peruse. After you’ve made your selection, pop into the main store to peruse Victual’s extensive selection of cheese, charcuterie, and other gourmet provisions for the perfect pairing (don’t be shy to ask for recommendations).
And if you’re looking for classy-yet-fun drink ideas, make sure to follow Victual’s Facebook page, where you’ll be the first to know about new products, and you’ll often find recipes for classic cocktails—with the best part being that you can get all of the ingredients at Victual (including the barware!).
