Where can I find the biggest vodka selections at a liquor store in LA?

I am trying to find this new bubble gum vodka by 3 olives and every liquor store I've called has no idea what I'm talking about. Does anyone know a liquor store that specializes in vodka? Thanks!

  1. The Beverage Warehouse in Culver City / Marina del Rey has a large vodka selection. If you haven't yet tried them, I would give them a call.

      Second Beverage Warehouse. A whole boatload of tequila as well.

      Beverage Warehouse
      4935 McConnell Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90066

    2. I'm sorry I don't know the name but the liquor store next door to the Whole Foods at Fairfax and Santa Monica has a big selection.

      1. Have you called Wine & Liquor Depot in Van Nuys? IMHO the best liquor store in LA.

          I second that. Plus, the prices are usually better than anywhere else (including Costco!).

        2. There's a bubble gum flavor? That sounds amazing! BevMo might be able to help you out in the Special Order section...it might help your case in that that they already carry other 3 Olives flavors. Good luck!

            BevMo usually has hard to find items (the only place I've been able to find Manhattan Specials!) PLEASE report back about the bubblegum vodka!!

              1. re: perk

                Cola/espresso in smallish glass bottles, pretty common in NY delis, out here not so much. The only other places I've seen them in LA is Bay Cities and Domiano's.

          2. Evidently, there's also a company called "Proximo" that has released this flavor as well.
            Another idea would be to contact (or go in person--hey it's "research") a bar that has a large selection of specialty drinks and/or martinis. (lola's comes to mind). They're probably hooked in to all of the latest flavors and could guide you.....

                Beverage Warehouse in Marina Del Rey might be a consideration.

                Here's an amazing list of vodkas they have for sale.

                  By the way, bubble gum vodka sounds disgusting!

                    Please no yucking someone else's yum!

                2. Bev Mo has this on their site:
                  "A juicy blend of imported English vodka and the fusion of classic fruit flavors. Enjoy Three-O Vodka as a shot, on the rocks or in your favorite cocktail! Try a Bubble Martini!"

                  1. I'd suggest one of the Jon's Market locations. They cater to a largely Eastern European clientele and, the last time I checked, literally have dozens of different vodkas on sale. Great prices too. I usually get a 750ml of Russian Standard (my current favorite) there for under $16.

                      Not about bubble gum vodka, but there is a Polish deli near me that, for a small corner store, has an enormous selection of vodka, including one that comes in a Tommy gun shaped bottle!
