There are a few occurrences in life that no one looks forward to, like the return of tax season, the annual invasion of mosquitos, and anytime someone begins a conversation with “we need to talk.” But occasionally, the cosmos does us a solid — like when Twin Liquors rolls Dollar Sale to help us forget about all those other less fortunate moments.
The semiannual promotion returns February 28 through March 2 when the Austin-based chain applies deep discounts to hundreds of bottles at all of its 85-plus locations — including Houston-area locations in Spring, The Woodlands, and Katy/Fulshear.
The sale works like this: Twin slashes the prices on hundreds of coveted wines, rare whiskies, and other libations to the lowest possible price, then adds a buck. Why a dollar? We don’t know, but a $20 Dollar Sale doesn’t quite provoke the same spirit of elation.
The biggest savings can be found on the whiskey aisle. Highlights this year include Talisker 10-year Scotch at $57.77, Makers Third Generation Barrel at $50.60, Wild Turkey Russel’s Reserve Single Barrel at $43.74, and Jameson Caskmates’ insanely delicious IPA edition at $26.17.
Those who get too frisky with whiskey can opt for gins like Seersucker and Fords, tequilas like Z tequila and Herradura Silver, and popular liqueurs like Campari or Aperol. Some exclusions do apply. Only bottles sized 750 milliliters are included, which bars most beers, and a few particularly precious spirits do not receive the discount.
As has become tradition, Twin is previewing the sale with a Facebook Live event at 7 pm on February 27, when customers can do a deep dive into specific prices and products. Otherwise, it's recommended to arrive before 10 am on February 28. Once the doors open, the most popular spirits are gobbled up swiftly.
