Hello everyone. I am getting married in Tennessee this Oct. and am driving down from Michigan. Being that I am driving through Kentucky, I thought that I would purchase the liquor for the reception here. I was told that pricing could be different depending on the county. Can anyone offer me any information regarding the best place, city to buy liquor down I-75? These cities/towns include; Florence, Lexington, Richmond, Berea, London, Corbin, Williamsburg, Mt. Vernon and Georgetown. Any suggestions? Please help!

Liquor Barn on I-75 exit 108. I always buy Beer and what ever there. It's pretty big, and his a nice size selection of anything you want.

Thanks for the tip. How are their prices? Can you buy by the gallon?

Nor Georgetown...many of these areas are dry (ie no liquor can be sold there).

I don't know about price-wise, but for convenience and selection your best bets may be the larger metro areas like Lexington and Florence.

Lexington, for example, has a Liquor Barn right off of I-75 at Hamburg, which is probably the same exit that bostonredsock mentioned. It is huge, like a warehouse, and usually has decent prices. They offer kegs of beer as well as large bottles of many popular liquors, and I think they might offer some bulk/case discounts.

Thanks for all the help everyone. Especially the mention of the dry cities. It would have been just my luck to stop at one of those cities after passing by the Liquor Barn. This forum is fantastic. Once again, thank you everyone. XOXOXO

That exit also has tons of restaurants - fast food and otherwise if you want to time a food stop along with the liquor stop. Plenty of gas stations too.

Thanks, bluegrassgirl. That would be a perfect time to stop and refuel both ourselves and the vehicle. The dogs will need to get out and run around for a while too. Sounds like this is the exits of all exits down I-75 through KY.

Does anyone else have any suggestions?

Yes exit 108 off I 75 has everything, including the huge Liquor Barn which has been mentioned.

If you need a spot for your dogs to run there is a park about 1 minute away from that Liquir barn on exit 108. It isnt a dog park but we let our dogs run around there.
