Can't find a particular product at your liquor store?


Did you know that you can special order virtually any item that is not normally carried in the OLCC's product line? As long as it is available from a source in the U.S., we can probably get it.

You can go to any liquor store to place your special order. The store will write up your request, and submit it to the OLCC for processing. Your order is then placed to the distillery. The distiller will ship your order to OLCC's warehouse, where it will be transferred to the liquor store. The liquor store will notify you when your items arrive. Special orders generally take about six to eight weeks.

One thing to note - you must buy this item by the case. This is necessary since suppliers will not ship in less than whole case quantities.

  3. Is there a place online that has the current list of products that are normally stocked in OLCC stores?

  4. Yes! Our website www.oregon.gov/OLCC contains lists of available products, product pricing, and monthly specials. This information is available under the Distilled Spirits Program link on our homepage - then click on Product Listings.

    I'm in the UK - most of Europe can move faster than this; it must be quite quaint over in Oregon.

  6. I've asked for something at several liquor stores. they never agree to special order it, or even look for it.

  8. I have a very special request. It is from over seas or from the Importer of this brand. I have seen Tanduay Rum being sold in stores in Washington and California but not Oregon. My question is this, would you be able to look into see if you are able to obtain this brand of rum by the case. It is Boracay Rum Coconut flavored white rum by Tanduay. http://www.tanduay.com/New%20Folder/products/ourBrandsboracay.html

  10. @Mark Nordlund,
    Yes, you can get Tanduay Rum via special order. Just go to your local liquor store and they will place the order for you. When your order comes in, they will let you know.
