Colonial Wines & Spirits is renowned as a celebration store throughout Little Rock and Central Arkansas. We have a warehouse packed with the most complete selection of spirits in the region. We pioneered the tasting bar. We led the push for craft beer and growlers. We’re consistently awarded best wine and spirits destination by the readers of Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Arkansas Times, Arkansas Life, Soiree and more.  And Colonial is a veteran owned business!

But “About Us” isn’t really about us. It’s about the people who trust Colonial to help make their celebrations exceptional. They’re our customers. And they are uniquely qualified to complete this page.  

I drive out of my way–even though I have liquor stores within a mile–to shop Colonial’s selection of wine and enjoy their customer service. Best in town, by far!
