About Russian liquor and liquor stores

Many foreigners that visit St. Petersburg and other parts of Russia often complain that it is difficult to find good liquor here, especially wine and champagne. It is true that Russians traditionally prefer sweeter wines, much different to what people prefer to drink in the United Kingdom, France, Italy or even America. Most local wines are only offered in sweeter varieties and their quality is not usually as high as that of wines imported from Europe. However, many liquor stores that cater to people with more refined tastes in alcohol have opened up in St. Petersburg, so finding good wine and liquor is not a problem if you know where to look. 

The only issue with these specialty St. Petersburg liquor stores is that the prices on alcohol are much higher than what you would pay for the same bottle in Europe. This is because Russia has a pretty high import tax on alcohol. However, if you decide to opt for Russian vodka or other local alcohol, the prices will be quite pleasant. Here are a few liquor stores in downtown St. Pete to check out:
