You are probably surprised to see Arcadia Wine and Spirits in Arcadia, Indiana here on little Indiana. After all, this is the first liquor store that has been featured here.

But this isn’t your ordinary liquor shop. In fact, it’s not anywhere in the same league!

We only stepped inside this Hamilton County wine and spirits shop because, from the outside, it looked like a neat building. Local business owners encouraged us to stick around and see it. So, we bumbled around the rest of the town, shopping, eat, and snacking while waiting until it opened.

When we saw that it was open we weren’t really sure what to expect. We were so surprised by what we found! I don’t know about you, but I don’t usually call these shops “classy.” Until we browsed around Arcadia Wine and Spirits, that is!

Exposed brick walls, warm hardwood floors, and elegant tin ceilings–it’s a bright and airy place. Built in 1864, its character has been returned thanks to the Anderson’s careful renovating. In fact, during the renovation the owners discovered the tin ceiling. You can bet that was a nice surprise! The original ice cooler is still in use today.

These aren’t out of town folks hoping to cash-in,  sticking to themselves, but people with a connection to the town and plenty of involvement with the community! In fact, owner Brandon Anderson’s grandpa played ball for the Arcadia Arrows. It was a semi-professional baseball team that played in the 1950s and 1950s. The large framed photo above is a picture of the team. See the kid kneeling down in the front? That’s Brandon’s dad. Neat, don’t you think? Family roots run deep here.

This isn’t a place where you’ll find well-known but sub-par liquors. No siree! Instead, you’ll find a selection of Indiana products as well as some really unique offerings. The owners are not the type to shop based on labels. It has to taste good to make it in to this lovely building.

There’s plenty that you will recognize (and things that have locally been requested), but Wine and Spirits hopes to encourage others to step outside of the (wine) box and try something new, too. Brandon is great at steering people toward beverages that will fit their tastes.

With a nice selection of Indiana wines and spirits making an appearance at this Hamilton County shop, there’s plenty of reasons to give it a go!
