For the Jakicevich family, what started as a pioneering winemaking venture in West Auckland's Glengarry Road has, over four generations, developed into New Zealand's largest family owned liquor retailer, Glengarry Wines.
Glengarry Spirits is a stand-alone store, an independent and singular exponent of the finest spirits the world has to offer, located on the Jervois Road site where it all began back in 1945. If you're into a particular type of music, you could view this venture as separating the alcoholic beverage into its various genres, much as music does, with each genre catering to its own distinct fan-base and associated expertise. Thus, over there, we're all about wine and, over here, we're operating as a Spirit specialist, with each aspect distinctly separate, but siblings nonetheless, under the Glengarry banner.
Glengarry Spirits is a shopping experience quite unlike any other currently found in New Zealand. Customers are able to immerse themselves in the world of premium spirits within a specially crafted space catering solely to the genre, where you will encounter the finest exemplars of each spirit category. The products on offer include unique items and rare bottlings, dispensed by a team of expert spirit specialists with useful knowledge to share and interesting stories to tell.
As well as functioning as a space to showcase the world of spirits, the Glengarry Spirits store conducts spirit-related tastings and events, with private functions from seminars to celebrations available to be booked. An exciting array of tastings and events await. We look forward to seeing you on Jervois Road. (LIZ WHEADON)
