Dennis is a well-known amateur naturalist, with (perhaps) the largest Insect collection in the Bahamas.

He used to ship mixed cases to me (at Staniel) via the Lady Frances (mailboat); and I'd pay for it on my Spring return through Nassau to Florida.

He also had a couple of washing machines, so we'd do a load of laundry, whilst we sampled the Nassau Royale, etc. (yes, he gave free samples too).
No wonder he's out of business.

I don't recall Bristol Liquors; but we used to purchase commercially (for Club Thunderball) from Burns House & another wholesaler (whose name escapes me.

there is another store at the marina at Emerald Bay and they have a shuttle to take you there. It is just a bit north of G-Town, very nice
