The site's logo: A unicorn with a wine bottle for a horn. Pretty great.

Every day across Pennsylvania, as much as 15 percent of the 14,000 alcohol-related products the commonwealth's Liquor Control Board sells in its 600 monopoly retail stores are available in only one of them. That can be 2,000 products, for one reason or another, for sale in just one place for 46,000 square-miles.

The PLCB's sites make them almost impossible to find.

So we did it for you.*

These are the unicorns. These are the boozicorns.

A few notes: Part of the fun here is that this data set isn't available in every state. The more private hands involved in selling hooch, the less accessible the data. One thing that means: This data is only as good -- and only as available -- on any given day as the PLCB's database and servers. They're imperfect. And so is the script that populates this site. Which, um, isn't always their fault.

Some weirdness like bad product names -- such as those including the term "mezcal tequila," which is not a thing -- I've left intact in part to help you find the product out in the wild. And, for transparency, the percentage-discount products include only those with a retail price of $20 or higher. Just happens that's when the results hit a balance of useful and interesting.

Often there's only a few of something. So if you see something you like, call the store. The data is updated daily at best. We do the best we can to respect them and you at the same time, liberating information from terrible interfaces that also helps you make informed buying decisions.

Well. In theory. Some of this stuff is awful.

Which brings us to the boozicorns themselves. Sometimes a product is unique because of its size. Or maybe because of its vintage. In the PLCB's system, each vintage of a wine is a separate product. A bourbon at 200 ML is a different product than the same bourbon at 750 ML. A rum at 750 ML is different than the same rum at 750 ML if it's packaged with glassware. Or maybe it's a fluke: a terrifically common product that for whatever reason is nearly out of stock in all of Pennsylvania that day.

There isn't necessarily an inherent specialness in any of these products -- although sometimes there very much is. That's all part of the fun of exploring data like this.

So keep all that in mind. And happy hunting.
