About Coborn's Liquor

Starting as a produce market in Sauk Rapids, Minnesota, Coborn's Inc. has grown to over 120 locations across Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota since 1921. The Coburn Inc. brand includes Coborn's and Coborn's Liquor, along with other acquisitions, including some Cash-Wise Foods, Marketplace Foods, Save-A-Lots, Ace Hardware, Subway, as well as convenience stores, pharmacies, a video store, and a floral shop. All of this began with a small produce market purchased by Chester Coborn.

Coborn's is in the business of serving people, both their customers and their employees, and prides itself on these relationships. The company wishes to inspire simplicity, healthy living, and happiness through excellent customer service from the top down. They are employee-owned, which means their employees continually work hard to improve the company.

Supporting the communities that Coborn's serves is an essential part of its philosophy of serving people. The Midwest chain donates to various nonprofits, health initiatives, youth programs, and the fight to end hunger. They work with Second Harvest Heartland to provide nutritious meals to those who need them and offer various health and wellness educational opportunities. Coborn's also employs its own staff dieticians to educate their food buyers as well as guests and the community as a whole.

What products does Coborn's Liquor carry?

Coborn's Liquor carries a massive inventory of wines, beers, and spirits in every flavor imaginable. You can find a fine wine to impress the host of a housewarming, ready-to-drink mixes to keep it simple for girls' night, and a fine selection of whiskeys to enjoy on the rocks after a hard day at work.

If you're looking for a brandy, check out their extensive array. Here you'll find everything from Christian Brothers to Korbel and everything in between. Check out the E&J Apple brandy for something a little different tonight. Need something with a little more kick? Pick up a bottle of Korbel Brandy 80 Proof.

Not a brandy drinker? That's OK because Coborn's has plenty more to pick from, including a wide selection of vodkas. Try one of the many flavors of Absolut, such as citron, mandarin, peppar, raspberry, and vanilla. Absolut offers a variety that appeals to absolutely anyone.

Now, to talk about that whiskey you get to enjoy over the rocks tonight after work. You could add a bottle of Windsor to your Instacart list, but perhaps a Writers' Tears would be a bit smoother? And, if you really want to treat yourself, try the Basil Hayden's, straight up or over ice.
