Looking for that special holiday gift for the scotch, tequila or brandy lover on your list? For the first time, Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority (ABC) is providing a convenient way for Hampton Roads area mall shoppers to buy liquor gift sets over the holidays. Through Dec. 31, Virginia ABC is featuring a limited selection of high-end, boxed liquors starting around $40 in Lynnhaven Mall in Virginia Beach. Some products include bar items such as branded glasses, a decorative tin or cocktail shaker.
“Liquor gift sets are historically popular sellers in our stores during the holiday season,” said Virginia ABC Chief Executive Officer Travis Hill. “This year, we’re offering a premier selection of some of our most popular items to mall customers as an added convenience while they’re shopping for everyone on their holiday gift list.”
Lynnhaven Mall shoppers can find the Virginia ABC kiosk near the White House Black Market on the first floor. This kiosk features more than 15 premium spirits including hard-to-find scotches such as Bowmore 15 Year Darkest and Talisker Distiller’s Edition. Online ordering is not available for this kiosk location.
Kiosk hours of operation Mondays through Saturdays are the same as mall hours. On Sundays, this location will open after noon, when liquor is legally permitted to be sold in Virginia. The kiosk will be closed on Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 22) and Christmas Day but will be open during mall hours on all other holidays. Only credit and debit card payments are accepted – no cash transactions.
Customers can also take advantage of Virginia ABC’s Black Friday promotion on Nov. 23 at the kiosk. All pretax purchases totaling $100 or more will receive a 20 percent discount. The sale does not apply to licensee purchases.
The Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority (ABC) is a major source of revenue for the commonwealth, contributing more than $2.1 billion to the general fund in the last five years. The agency currently operates 374 state stores. Its Bureau of Law Enforcement oversees more than 18,000 ABC licensed establishments. The agency also provides alcohol education and prevention programs for people of all ages. Now marking its 84th year, ABC remains committed to progress and innovation in carrying out its vision of bringing good spirits and excellent service to Virginia.
