St Louis specialty liquor store

I'm looking for a specialty liquor store in St Louis (the closer to the Clayton area the better) with lots of imported stuff. Specifically, I want to buy some Turkish Raki, but Arak will do if I can't find that. Let me know, thanks.

  1. Not in Clayton, but you really can't go wrong with Luka's Liquors out in Ballwin. It's not too far from Clayton Road, though :> It's a really awesome place and I bet if they don't have what you are looking for (and I would think they would) they would be able to get it for you.

      1. re: atomic42

        Concur on the Wine and Cheese Place on Forsyth. They definitely have a smaller selection than Lukas, but that's a great store.

      2. Randall's Wine and Liquor, right off of I-44 at Jefferson, looks vast from the outside. I have not been inside, but it looks promising for unusual liquor.

        1. Try Starrs on Big Bend in Richmond Heights. If they don't carry it, they might be able to order some for you.

          1. Again not close, but Kaya's across from South County Center has all kinds of unusual stuff, catering in some part to the area's emigrants from the former Yugoslavia.

            In addition to the other recommendations, in Clayton I'd call Jon at Parker's Table and see if he has it or can get it. And Wild Oats has some unusual hootch as well.
