Gins & Tonics
I was so happy when I found this drinks heaven, it’s very cool, because they stock absolutely everything that comes under the label ‘Drink’, boasting almost 3000 Labels on display. It’s an off sales in a stylish warehouse environment with many labels at lower prices than some bottle shops, but here it’s more about the selection, like 65 different Gins including Gordons, Pink Gins, Hendricks, Gin Mare, Beefeater, Bombay, Liverpool Gin, Elephant, Bobby’s, Plymouth and Bulldog, and the amazing McQueen and the Violet Fog Gin to mention but a few, oh and the tasters, you really must ask for a taste of the Bumbu Rum, especially the XO omg!
Over 30 Tonics
To mix them up there are over 30 Speciality flavoured Tonics by Franklin, 3 Cents, Fentimans and Lamb & Watts! and new this year, the UK’s favourite ‘Fever Tree’ Tonics, Just Brilliant!
Quality that Counts
Originally it was the name ‘Blind Taste’ that caught my eye, cool name I thought, my first impressions when I walked through the door, was wow this looks professional, the quality stands out, the rustic, warehouse feel with high ceilings and cool lighting. A warm welcome from one of the Andonis’, and a lovely Arabic coffee, plenty of room, out front about 250 square metres of Wines & Spirits, mixers and soft drinks.
Outback more than 250 Beers from around the world including Belgium, Germany, Holland, Czech Republic, Spain, Mexico, Japan, Cyprus and of course the UK! … just for starters everything from Brewdogg Punk PA, Becks, Old Speckled Hen, Hob Goblin Ruby, Inns & Gunn, Chimnay, Duvel, Salonikia, Waterloo Tripple Blonde, San Miguel, Sol, and my fav Stella Artois, and of course Keo, Carlesberg and Leon … to mention but a few
Over 40 Different Vodkas including Absolute, Smirnoff, Finlandia, Beluga, Stolichnaya, Ciroc, Liverpool Vodka, Nikka, Crystal Head, Royal Dragon, Belvedere, Roberto Cavalli, Russian Standard and of course a fine selection of Grey Goose, maybe a nice gift, in 3 ltr bottles, or you must try Grey Goose VX a Vodka with a Cognac after taste. They also have a 6-litre bottle of Stoli Elite, looks good up on the drinks shelf.
That’s the Spirit
There’s over 35 Rums, dark, light and speciality, my favourite, you must ask for a taster the Bumbu from Barbados plus a fantastic selection of Cognacs, Bourbons, Liqueurs and Tequilas that will blow your socks off … and several labels and speciality drinks and gifts, you’ll not find anywhere else at these prices.

Retail & Wholesale
Supplying well over 700 commercial clients, from Paralimni to Larnaca, they welcome locals residents and visitors to the area, with home delivery for party orders all part of the excellent service. So everyone is welcome and they are very happy to invite you in for a tasting and regularly hold tasting events for their clients. There’s every drink you can possibly imagine, alcoholic or not, oh, except milk, 😉
I highly recommend a visit, something a touch above the bottle shops and off sales, a new experience in buying drinks, something with a little class, here you’ll find a little personal attention and at wholesale prices you really can’t go wrong ! and btw they’re exclusive stockists of several of their labels so just pop in and have a look around and if you fancy a taste, tell Andonis I said its cool to have a shot! and while you’re there why not pick up a gift voucher to introduce a friend to Blind Taste … Check out my Live video
