Ocracoke's long history has some interesting highlights, but none of the local legends and legacies are as far-reaching or as popular as the island's local pirates. As the temporary home to a crew of notorious buccaneers, including Blackbeard himself, Ocracoke is the destination of choice for pirate lovers who want to explore the stomping grounds of the island's most notorious residents.
While beer and wine are found in many stores across the Outer Banks, you will need to visit a state-regulated ABC Store (Alcoholic Beverage Control) to purchase liquors. ABC stores are the only stores in North Carolina licensed to sell spirituous liquors.
ABC stores are large and have a massive selection of liquor to choose from. You will find a wide selection of vodka, rum, gin, whiskey, tequila, scotch, bourbon, triple sec, vermouth, bitters and anything else you may be looking for. A small amount of mixers also are available.
There are a few things to consider before you to head to the store for ingredients to make a refreshing Bahama Breeze or Strawberry Daquiri. First, the pricing of spirituous liquors is set throughout the state and are uniform at each store. Second, all sales transactions require a form of ID, such as a driver’s license. Third, remember that ABC stores are closed on Sundays and plan accordingly. Lastly, always drink responsibly.
