Plus: Eat, drink, screen at Eatable


Spanish files

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.

Eat, drink, screen
