Grappa Shop(pa) in East Bay?

Mr. Eli | Apr 22, 200308:58 PM     5

My fine bottle of grappa that I've been enjoying by the capful since it went half empty (I guess I'm a pessimist) is about to run out. Wondering who might have a good selection of grappe and/or eau de vie, calvados, etc. near my Berkeley home.

Also, if you have any interesting cooking ideas for these brandy-like products, do tell. I put grappa into fruit dishes such as apple pie and cobbler, fruit salad, etc., and it just makes them pop. Don't bother replying to say how disgusting you think grappa is. You'll be embarrassed later.
