Imported Liquors, Beer, & Wine in Guangzhou

Hi Fellow China Hounds,

Just moved to Guangzhou from the UK, and I'm looking for some advice. I'm looking for imported liquors, beer, and wine in Guangzhou. I've been recommended Corner's Deli through (Good for general China & Chinese language info; not that great for China food info). I haven't been yet because I don't know if it's really worth the trip.

I'm on the lookout for several things in particular:
Hendrick's Gin
Good rum (no Malibu rubbish!)
Good tequila (no Cuervo rubbish!)
English beers
And last but not least, Czech Budvar. I had promised a friend a bottle of real Budvar and I forgot to buy it in the UK before I left!

Am I asking too much? Is this an impossible list for GZ? Any insight would be much appreciated!

  1. Hey there--

    There is a store near the Garden Hotel that sells imported beer. Decent liquor is a bit harder to come by, however.

    The store is sandwiched between Jianshe Liu Ma Lu and Huanshi Dong Lu, but its on a small side street, and I'm not sure of the name. It's about 1 block N and 1 block E of Oggi's, if that helps.

    Send me an email--we can meet up and have a few good beers sometime.
