P&V Wine and Liquor
A boutique bottle-o stocking organic wine, beer and spirits, as well as its own pre-batch cocktails.
Why should all the fancy drinks be relegated to nights out? That is what a bunch of Sydney's beverage buffs sought to rectify when they opened P&V Wine and Liquor. P&V (short for piss and vinegar, in case you were wondering) is the latest project by a group of Sydney's foremost beverage connoisseurs: Lou Dowling of Mary's, wine expert and journalist Mike Bennie (who also advised Noma's wine list and co-founded Rootstock) and Jake Smyth and Kenny Graham (both of Mary's, The Lansdowne and The Unicorn).
Its focus is on sourcing and selling small-batch beverages including organic wines, local beer and bespoke spirits - the kind of drinks you swoon over at a bar but can never find at your local bottle'o. Local bar favourites like Earl's Juke Joint and Bloodwood produce cocktails that are sold by the litre. Plus you can pick up a TV dinner, crafted by the Mary's crew, for when your evening plans consist solely of Netflix and fill(-your-tummy-with-delicious-treats).
