Randall’s Wines and Spirits has never been known to do anything small. Standing at 9-feet tall and 13-feet wide is the latest edition to the 1910 South Jefferson location of the award-winning liquor store: a 1936 Belgian organ. Crafted by famed organ maker Theofiel Mortier owner George Randall purchased the instrument from the Milhous Collection, one of the world’s most admired and extraordinary private collections of mechanical instruments, rare and important automobiles, Americana and collectibles.

Glittering in pastels and gold, the gigantic Art Deco Band Organ uses forced air to control several instruments including pipes, a 105-key Hammond electric organ, an accordion, a saxophone and percussion.

Randall’s unveiled the organ in style with a week of vintage concoctions, including Champagne cocktails and sidecars; also highlighted were all Belgian beers Randall’s carries.

In other news, a soft opening for Randall's fourth location - 14201 Manchester Road - is expected on Thu., Aug. 16, with the store's grand opening slated for Sun., Aug. 26.
