America's oldest liquor store

Recommended Posts


Not really bourbon history but definitely related I think.


I went to Tavern Wine and Spirits in Charleston, SC yesterday and they claim to be the oldest liquor store in the country.  It is a very small store of two rooms and is packed with great bottles. Prices are obviously geared toward the tourist crowd so keep that in mind if you visit.  They do carry a nice selection of local products, and the gentleman I spoke with seemed knowledgeable. If in Charleston for a tourist type visit, I would recommend checking it out during your wandering. It's at the corner of East Bay St and Exchange St, next door to the dungeon.
