Pernod (anise liquor)/Apple Brandy availability in Charlotte

I'm planning a dinner party and was wondering if Pernod can be found in the Charlotte area?

I'm also looking for Le trou Normand, Calvados or Applejack.

This is all for a dinner i'm planning-- you can find the menu in progress at

  1. Your best bet will be Frugal MacDougal right outside Carowinds, just off 77. I have seen Calvados and Applejack at my local ABC. If anybody knows where you can get Carriage House Apple Brandy, I'd love to find some. It's made up in Lenior and I've been combing places around Charlotte for it.

      Carriage House is sold at ABC stores here in Western NC but could be at a store near you . Good quality and is great with apple juice for a " chill " drink . Hope your quest is successful . Slainte !

        Many thanks, will have to check for it next time we roll westward.

        One of the few good things about the Meck ABC is the product search on their website. Not only tells you if they carry a certain liquor, you can find out which stores have it in stock. As of this morning, Carriage House Apple Brandy is avaiable at the 3rd St, 51, Ballantyne, Colony, Statesville Rd., and Cotswold stores.

          First, glad someone agrees with me about the liquor stores and suckage. Second, thank you for the info. Now I have to figure out which is closest. Not that a voyage to the ABC is ever a bad thing.

      3. I have seen pernod at frugal before best bet is to call or email them. They respond quickly to email

        1. Frugals definitely has both. The calvados selection isn't Zachy's but the have 5 or 6 to choose from.

          have a great dinner!

            Thanks so much for the help, dinner was amazing. Also, thanks for the heads up on the searchable database for Meck ABC stores, that's going to be a huge help in the future.


          2. Southern Spirits has both, here's the address:
