What are Charlie Nelson’s favorite shops to visit when traveling?
I generally look for interesting spirits and things relating to that. I wanted to buy just about everything in H&F Bottle Shop in Atlanta. I’m always looking for really interesting things, things that people are making. I generally like nice aged things, like whiskey, or hot sauce or sauerkraut. I make a lot of sauerkraut and boiled peanuts, too. I try to look for something that is symbolic of where I am. Like if I am in Paris, maybe I’d look for a nice bottle of wine or a nice book on French philosophy or history.
