AlcoHall Cava & Off Licence, Kapparis

AlcoHall Cava & Off Licence, Kapparis, Paralimni, Established 2008 ...

Off Licence
Every town needs a good Off Licence, but these days, especially in Cyprus, a Walk-in Cava is a must!, and fortunately AlcoHall has both … You know they’ll be open from 9 am ’til late every day, with Lorraine from the Green Isle, offering a warm Irish smile to welcome you … oh btw that’s 365 days a year, except maybe Christmas Day, when in the morning they’ll make sure they’ll be there so you can top up whatever you got through on Christmas eve 😉

It’s not warehouse style here, so naturally you’ll find everything you’d expect from a good Off Licence.  In fact as part of the Karas group of companies, it’s the area’s largest selection of discounted wines, beers and spirits, smokes and nibbles and even a little gift or souvenir … Lorraine has been in Cyprus 20 years and at the Cava 8 years and she is so genned up on her booze, ha! well she is Irish 😉 moving from the far west cost of Europe to far East Coast of Europe, wow! and always ready to help if you need it!

Walk in Cava
A purpose built, walk in Cava, fully air conditioned to a constant 21°C … Inside, a first class selection of over 100 different wines from all over the world, New Zealand, Argentina, Spain, France, Chile, Australia, Italy, South Africa, America, and of course a comprehensive selection from Greece and Cyprus, that btw since joining the EU are producing some of the finest wines in the world.  One of my faves has to be the Whispering Angel Rosé, or the Miraval, and the Cotes De Provence Rose, chilled … all absolutely delicious !

World’s Oldest
Cyprus in fact, also produces Commandaria, the oldest table wine in the world and with a few carefully selected brand names to choose from including the very popular St. Johns Commandaria, but I urge you to try the ETKO Commandaria … it’s nectar to taste!

Everything from Don Perignon or Moet to Veuve Clicquot Brut & Rose, Deutz  Champagne, and Taittinger Champagnes, all for that very special occasion …

So let’s get into the spirit of this place, starting with my fav tipple …

Whiskies & Malts
Specialising in a extensive collection of Whiskies and Single Malts and a few labels for that very special occasion, from under a tenner to way over a ton … blends like, Dalmore 21 Years, Johnny Walker Red, Black, Gold, Platinum, XR, Blue and Swing, or maybe a Bottle of Lagavulin 16 Year Old, or Lagavulin Double Matured Scotch Whiskey, or the very special Glenmorangie Port Casks and Sherry Casks and many more … tbh I’m happy with a Jack Daniels, Bells, Famous Grouse or Cutty Sark at their crazy low prices.

In the Brandy display you’ll find V.S.O.P, my fav, Metaxa all the way up to the Private Reserve, Remy Martin, Five Kings, Martell VS Cognac, Triomphe, Hine Vintage and Three Barrels, to mention but a few …

For that extra little smooth taste, go for something like Grey Goose or Belvedere, Beluga, Ciroc, Ketel One, Van Gogh and of course Roberto Cavali, Smirnoff or Absolut in many flavours …

Everything you’ll need to mix any cocktail, stocking all the top named Rums.  I just love the Ron Zacapa XO, Dark Rum, Gin, Tequila, Ouzo and Zivania … Speciality Blends and Mixes, Liqueurs, Party Ice, Charcoal for the BBQ, and much much more.

I love the displays, especially my fav tipple, The Jack Daniels Pyramid ! … it’s all neatly laid out and with plenty of soft drinks, mixers, snacks and munchies that are a must for any party, and a few souvenirs and gifts, just in case you want to take a little prezzie with you.

Oh, often as not it’s cheaper to buy here than it is at the airport and if you’re out of cash, don’t worry there’s an ATM outside! and if the accounts empty, they are also agents for UniStream Money Transfer … so there’s no excuse lol

Open all year
Summer 9 am ’til 11 pm
Winter 9 am ’til 10 pm

You’ll find them at 56, Kapparis Avenue, half way along Kapparis and opposite the world famous Karas Fish Taverna … just hit get directions below.
