Any Recs for Quality Mom & Pop Liquor / Spirits Store in Greater L.A. / O.C. Area?

Hi All,

Wanting to support small mom & pop businesses during the pandemic. Does anyone know of any good mom & pop Liquor / Spirits Stores that carries a decent selection of smaller / artisanal Whiskies in the Greater Los Angeles / Orange County Area?

Anywhere from Ventura County down to Southern Orange County is fine.

Haven’t been since they moved, but we always enjoyed a trip to Bar Keeper. Vintage glass and curated spirits, including bourbons and whiskey.

Hi @Chowseeker1999 I’m on a few boards with bourbon and whiskey fans and these are the most recommended places in SoCal. Follow them on IG as they frequently post new bottles.
