The only Wine & Liquor Store on Main Street, Lake Placid! Considered a boutique style shop, it's our goal to offer a unique and personalized beverage retail experience. Featuring hand picked wine & liquor selections from a majority of small production wineries & distilleries - ultimately providing an alternative to the ever present warehouse-style liquor stores. Our hands-on service provides customers with knowledgeable confidence when buying our products - taking the guess work out of the vast world of alcoholic beverages. For us, the most important factor is not the name or current advertising behind a product, it is the taste and value that matter most! Follow us on Facebook & Twitter for info on new products, special events, and features. And, always feel free to stop by the Alpine Mall to see all we have to offer! While you're here, don't forget to check out our partner store - Stouts & Stogies. A specialty micro-brew, cigar, and munchies store! The only walk-in humidor in the entire Adirondack park.

The owners really know their stuff. I came in with a gift certificate eyeing a couple different beers and was point to some great selections. They have a great selection of local wines and beers and seem to focus of seasonals. Because the paid such close attention to my interests they earned a loyal customer.

The Smoking Cork is THE BEST - not only because it's the only liquor store on Main Street, but because of it's helpful staff, wonderful selection, and intimate atmosphere. I have never walked into this store and not come out happy and with my arms full. The owner's always have time to help hand-pick exactly what I'm looking for, to... More

They were extremely helpful and took the time to answer all my personal questions. Every time I stop into lake placid, I make a point to stop in. Recently, I was... More

Perfectly located on Main Street within the Alpine Mall (across from the Red Bobsled) this boutique liquor store has everything you need and more. Prices and variety like no other liquor store in town. I always buy my High West and Placid Spirits here. They make the best gifts. The wood decor is beautiful and rich. This place keeps getting...

Great spot to pick up a quick bottle of your favorite beverage. My favorite is the 1/5th of Crown Royal that you cant find in many others. They also had a great wine tasting that we were able to try that was a lot of fun. A must stop.
