I just stop in and buy a few bottles of wine every time I'm there for Sasquatch. They have a tasting room, if you weren't aware. It's like $6 and they give you samples of 5-7 wines and you get to take home the glass, with the option of buying some bottles.
That is awesome! How far away from the gorge is it?
Very close, within walking distance. It's on Silica road on the left side, maybe a mile before the entrance to the campground. There's signs out on the road for it.
You're not buying it in Canada are you? Booze is like 1/4 the price in the states.
Also, I don't see the problem with box wine at all. Pull out the bag when it's half done, shove it in your backpack near the bottom and the security guards never find it.
No definitely not buying it in Canada. I google mapped the route today. Victoria ►liquor store in Port Angeles ►Walmart Port Angeles ►Trader Joe's Silverdale ►SASQUATCH!
It looked like on the websites that I can't buy hard liquor at grocery stores, but if you know any different please let me know! Less stops = better
We usually just get our liquor at the duty free. You can get 2 litres each and they dont mind (even though the limit is technically 1 litre), so that is usually good enough for us and then we get beer and wine at the grocery store. Coming from Victoria you might be taking the ferry, so I'm not sure how the duty free situation works with that.

Yeah I don't know how it works really either... I have only taken that ferry once and it was at 7 pm and we were about to drive for 28ish hours straight so we didn't really look to see what was going down. I do work with a lady that goes down all the time and I know she brings stuff back, but I don't know about the way down.
Yeah that's the way to do it, something like $15 for a litre of liquor, can't really go wrong. On the way down the don't really care if you go over your limit by a bottle so it saves you a stop along the way.
