Business Spotlight: White Horse Wine & Spirits

| November 10, 2020

Introducing White Horse Wine & Spirits, a grocery-store like experience for your entertaining needs! Their philosophy is, it all goes hand-in-hand. Food is the first thing, then comes friends, then comes booze. It doesn’t matter if you’re enjoying wine, beer, or spirits — drinks are meant to be enjoyed with food and friends, even if that means a socially distanced outdoor meal or a Zoom happy hour right now.

White Horse Wine & Spirits, a family-owned business, is more than just a liquor store — they are truly a one-stop-shop! In addition to wine, beer, and spirits, there is also a gourmet market with takeout meals and catering, a wide selection of gourmet cheeses, and tons of great gifts - including award-winning gift baskets.

While they do carry all of the popular top-selling brands, their true passion lies with items that are a little off the beaten path. Recently added was a section to the store called Lola's Little Shop that's dedicated to lesser-known natural, organic, and sustainable products.

The idea is that when you share something new and different with someone, it becomes a talking point, or it can break the awkwardness of meeting someone for the first time. It simply makes things more interesting. It also makes our store a fun place to shop! There's always something new and different to discover when you visit us.

 At the same time, they don't want these off the beaten path products to feel intimidating, so the staff is ready to lend a well-educated hand. They offer lots of training opportunities and encourage our staff to taste new products. The staff favorites are proudly featured on dedicated displays in the front of the store and on the website's homepage along with short, but personal write-ups for easy shopping.

But, don't think there is a stuck up or snobby vibe! The same high level of customer service to all customers, no matter what you come in looking for. The popular stuff is popular for a reason! 

Covid has impacted all our businesses. At White Horse Wine & Spirits, they closed the doors to in-store shopping and only offered Local Delivery and Store Pick-up for two months during the height of the pandemic. It was not an easy decision. It was not a government-mandated closure, but they felt a moral obligation to do what was right for both the employees and our community... while also ensuring they had a business to come back to. They are so thankful for all of the customers who supported our decision and shopped with them online! 

The store has since reopened for in-store shopping (with the proper safety modifications, of course), but you can still order online. We now have a dedicated in-store pickup area and will even bring your order out to your car if you prefer curbside pickup. They also offer Local Delivery to select zip codes, and can ship most wine and spirits anywhere in New Jersey.
