Plus: Eat, drink, screen at Eatable
The LCBO’s third Products of the World specialty shop, this one focusing on fine Spanish liquids, is now open at 2946 Bloor West. The location stocks a variety of over 160 wines and spirits from Spain, including many from the LCBO’s consignment program. Since Spain offers some of the best-value wines available, this is great news for lovers of sherry, cava, brandy, Rueda or Rioja.
