I posted a similar general question on the CH Spirits board about imported spirits, but I'm curious what everyone's experience has been in procuring obscure imported liquor/liqueurs/spirits in the D.C. area.
I'm currently a NoVa resident, but will soon be living in D.C., and my girlfriend is in Maryland.
Specifically, I'm looking for Riga Black Birch (Balsam/Balzams), the unofficial thick herbal liquor of Latvia. It's not in the VA ABC's February specialty orders catalog. Are Maryland stores capable of ordering odd items like this? Is the price going to be monstrous?
