The best liquor store is usually the one that's closest. But if you're looking for a wider selection or savvy staff recommendations or if you just want to browse through dozens of unfamiliar bottles waiting for a spirit to call your name then PEARSON'S WINE OF ATLANTA is the place. From rotgut to vintage rye, Pearson's carries a dizzying array of small-batch bourbons, single-malt scotches, boutique vodkas, exotic tequilas and a world tour of foreign liqueurs. The windowless walls of this venerable Buckhead landmark are lined with distilled beverages both familiar and obscure, making it easy to imagine you're raiding a rich uncle's liquor stash. And isn't that a delicious thought?
