FAQ #45 – What About HARD LIQUOR In Ecuador?

If you enjoy cocktails or straight shooters, hard liquor in Ecuador is everywhere! Even in the grocery stores!

You may find that some of your favorite imports, such as Grey Goose Vodka, Bombay Sapphire Gin or Bailey’s Irish Cream, are more expensive in Ecuador compared to the U.S., but Ecuador also has some of its own delicious brands!

Gin Crespo is one of our favorites. It’s an old-style gin distilled and bottled in Guayaquil. Sumax is another brand from Ecuador selling a variety of flavored hard liquor.
