No Ordinary Liquor Store

Tucked away in a historic brick building along the Pootatuck River, our vision was to transform this once uninspired space into something truly unforgettable. To create a gathering place where people in our community would come together to explore new flavor profiles and expand their palates with a distinct selection of wine, beer and spirits from around the corner and across the globe.

Come in, or come back, experience it for yourself — let us get to know you a little better so we can help you discover the best bottle you’ve ever had.

Nicks Chilled & Distilled peace sign lights

a Father, a Son & a Great Dane 

While Nick’s chilled & distilled officially opened its doors in May of 2016, Patrick and Nick – father and son – have been part of the Sandy Hook community for 25 years. In fact, it’s within these very walls that Nick found his true passion while working in the traditional package store that had long called the building home. 

He immersed himself in learning, tasting and expanding his palate — when presented with the opportunity to acquire the store, he was ready. He just had to convince Patrick, with his 25+ years of experience designing and managing luxury retail spaces around the world, to be his partner. 

Nick’s chilled & distilled is a store built for and by the community — from the displays handcrafted from reclaimed wood from a Sandy Hook horse barn to the team of local welders, carpenters and artisans who helped pull it all together. Today, it’s a store filled with unique bottles and hand-selected cheeses and gifts from both near and far offering something special to everyone who crosses its threshold.

Craft Brews, Specialty Spirits, Sustainable Wines…

& So Much More

Gathering with family, friends and neighbors to share a drink and a good story is part of what makes up a life’s most memorable moments. While we know who you’re with is the most important ingredient, we whole-heartedly believe what you’re drinking is a pretty close second.

That’s why we’re committed to getting to know you, to really understand what you like – and what you don’t — so we can introduce you to bottles similar to those you’ve tried before or help you discover something completely new.
