Looking for a US retailer of pacharán

MC Slim JB | Jul 5, 2007 06:38 PM

I used to be able to get Basarana Pacharán in Boston, both in restaurants and local retail outlets. This is a Spanish liqueur ("patxaran" in Basque) that was first served to us at the upstairs bar of the late, beloved Biba restaurant here. It seems that no local retailer carries any kind of pacharán anymore, and I can't find a US online distributor.

Basarana isn't the only maker (they're based in Pamplona, Navarre), just the only one I've sampled. The stuff is like a sloe-infused anisette, just a lovely cordial, and it has romantic significance to us. Does anyone know where I can find it in the States? An online retailer would be ideal, but finding anyone that carries it would be useful.
