They will also offer an array of craft spirits as well, such as Chichibu, Mars, El Dorado, Real Minero and the Armagnacs of Charles Neal.
Skurnik Wines & Spirits CEO Michael Skurnik said, “We have long had a presence in the state of Connecticut, so it just seemed a natural fit to make our wines and spirits available to the neighboring Ocean State of Rhode Island.”
