Recs for a good place to buy spirits in Paris

I'm looking for a good place to buy local, non exported booze in Central Paris. Pastis, Armagnac, etc. I figured folks on here would have an opinion as to what and where.

I'm staying in the 1st but can jump on the Metro.

Many thanks for the tips!

    If you are looking for Armagnac go to Ryst Duperyon in the 7 ( 79 Rue du Bac 75007 Paris, France). They will let you sample the Armagnac and explain about it if you need. They have prunes steeped in Armagnac that a friend said were fabulous. http://maisonrystdupeyron.com/en/inde...

    Lavinia also have a selection of Armagnac going back I think at least a century but I am not sure they have the depth of experience on the sales floor. The Armagnac are on the second floor.

      Julhès, rue Faubourg St Denis.

        In addition to the excellent selections above
        Caves Bossetti on Rue de Archives just by BHV.
        Galleries Lafayette in 9th has a huge selection of what you want as well.

          couple of places (not in the 1st)

          Les Caves Augé ( http://www.cavesauge.com/ with a PDF catalog

          )

          Lavinia (mostly generic stuff, but maybe you'll find good stuff)

              Thanks for the recs. I did hit up Caves Auge. Great selection, although premium pricing. I was able to find a '73 Armangnac, which I was searching for though.
