For the past 14 years, the knowledgeable beverage aficionados at Fine Wines & Liquors have carefully selected palate-spanning spirits and wines from around the world to bring their customers a versatile selection. The passionate staff samples 90% of their wines available for purchase, giving them an intimate familiarity with nearly every wine's bouquet, mouthfeel, and credit rating. Tasty vinos from Spanish, American, French, and Argentine vineyards tempt customers with the fruity notes of pinot noir, crisp sweetness of chardonnay, and pleasant pepperiness of garnache. Smoky scotches, oak-aged rum, and bottles of juniper-kissed gin also furnish social gatherings with delicious pours of spirits from distilleries such as The Speyside, McDowell's, and North Shore. Beverage enthusiasts can also opt to join the wine and beer of the month clubs, which furnish members with a new bottle every 30 days.

All lighting showrooms are open Monday–Saturday, and today’s deal is not valid for the purchase of light bulbs, electrical-supply material, dimming equipment, or cold-fusion-powered nightlights.
It's more than just the retro, 1960s-style sign that nods to a bygone era at Malloy's Finest Wine & Spirits. The huge maroon marquee pointing to the Glen Ellyn location on Roosevelt Road invokes a pleasant feeling of nostalgia, but so does the friendly, attentive service of the resident beverage experts. The company has been around since the repeal of Prohibition and continually updates its international display of wine and spirits to meet customers' changing needs. Wine and beer connoisseurs host free tastings every Saturday and guide patrons through highly rated vintage varietals that are tucked safely in a cellar.
