World of Whiskies

Whiskey Stores - Specialists in everything about Whiskey

Amongst the connoisseur, the specialist Whiskey stores have become shrines to the drink of whiskey.

The experience of visiting these shops is one not to be forgotton as the shops shelves are often lined with rare whiskies.

It is at this stage that for all you readers who live outside the UK, I will recommend the following online retailer. They are Whisky specialists, they stock a huge range of whiskies, and they will ship them to allmost every country.

Click on the following link and why not browse the huge selection of whiskies they have!

One of the major advantages of taking a Whiskey tour, or a Whiskey trail is that each distillery visited will have a store where examples of their Whiskey can be bought.

Almost all the other Whiskey stores are run by Independent owners who are themselves enthusiasts.

Because they are Whiskey people, and have a knowledge and excitement for the drink, they make the visit to these stores not only a real pleasure, but part of your education.

I have listed below some terrific examples of specialist stores in the UK. A number of these can also be found online.

The Whisky Shop

Founded only in 1992, The Whisky Shop has quickly grown to be Scotland's only chain of specialist whisky shops. Starting out in a single store in Edinburgh further development has seen branches opening up across the length and breadth of the country.

This growth could not have happened if it was not for a commitment to holding a massive range of different whiskies and developing a reputation for having extremely knowledgable staff who are dedicated to ensuring customers recieve an excellent service.

Each store has its own unique character with some located in modern shopping malls, others on traditional High Streets and one located at one of the UK's top visitor attractions, Vinopolis in London.

In 1999 The Whisky Shop opened up its first foreign store when it joined with sister company, Hector Russell Kiltmaker, to acquire premises in San Francisco, thus enabling it to supply customers across The United States.
