The Whisky Shop chain is the largest specialist retailer of whiskies in the UK with 16 outlets in Scotland and England and an active shop on line at www.whiskyshop.com. Its flagship London store is at 7 Queens Passage.
The Whisky Shop offers customers a unique shopping experience where they can browse (and in some cases sample) a range of over 400 different whiskies, including many independent bottlings exclusive to the store. By far the largest category is single malt Scotch, as well as whiskies from Ireland, Canada, America, Japan and India. As a customer service there is a small, but excellent, selection of wines and champagnes; and then there are cream liqueurs, Scotch liqueurs and a vast miniatures collection.
The Whisky Shop also stages regular whisky tasting events. Entitled ‘Unlocking the Mystery of Whisky’ the experienced staff will give a tutored tasting to open groups and private parties. For a private event, the store can accommodate up to 25 guests around a purpose built tasting table. A plasma screen and music sound system are used for the events and are also available, if corporate users wish to include their own presentation within the programme.
