We have over 600 malt whiskies with many being single cask, independently bottled and from small batches. We provide a unique tasting experience from a fantastic selection of spirits allowing us to match a malt to your palette and budget. 

Our single malts are personally selected by us, so you are assured of some of the most unique drams from across Scotland. 

We also stock rare and collectables from distilleries that are closed (mothballed) or demolished (silent) and lost forever! We also offer a range of lager, beers, wine, champagne, vodka, gin, port, brandy, sherry and Scottish liqueurs.
