Independent High Street Shop with Internet Shop Prices

This will surprise a lot of people, but despite being a small niche retailer on a typically expensive High Street, we are very competitive on prices. We try to match and occasionally actually beat, the two largest online retailers whilst also saving you on postage costs when buying in the shop.  We also do not believe in having two prices, so you will not see a “web exclusive” price.  The price is the same whether you are buying in the shop or online.

There are even occasions where we not only match but also even beat the supermarkets for pricing (unless they are doing loss leaders)!  We cannot always do so as our costs vary depending on availability and supplier, but we do try.  If you think we are not competitive on a particular price please ask and we will look at what we can do.

Maintaining this competitive price is exceptionally difficult to  do for a small shop like ours but we want you to not only get the best service and advice we can give you but also the best value.

New In

We are constantly updating our products, bringing you new whiskies as they are released or ones we have bought in following customer recommendations.  These are shown below for a while until they are superseded by newer products.

Distillery of the Month

Every month we feature a different Distillery as our Distillery of the month.  We then feature expressions form their range on the tasting barrel.

Our Distillery of the Month for January is Glenglassaugh.

Glenglassaugh Distillery, at the east end of the beautiful Sandend Bay, was founded by Col. James Moir in 1875. He quickly established a reputation for making a quality whisky and the company prospered. He ran the distillery with his two nephews until 1892, when Glenglassaugh was purchased by Highland Distillers. After being completely re-built in 1960, the distillery continued to produce whisky until 1986 when it was mothballed.

The distillery sat silent for over 20 years until it was purchased by a group of investors and started production again in December 2008. In 2013, the BenRiach Distillery Company took over Glenglassaugh distillery with the intention to bring this iconic distillery fully back to life by giving it the investment, commitment and care it deserves.

Glenglassaugh is produced using the highest quality of Scottish barley and traditional distilling methods, our key focus is on quality. While many distilleries have become highly automated, here at Glenglassaugh our spirit is still handcrafted by a small, highly skilled team dedicated to creating the highest quality product. Only the finest casks are selected to slowly mature our precious spirit in our coastal warehouses until it is ready.

We have three of the core expressions and three limited editions available to taste at our Master Class –  why not expand your whisky horizons.

Available To Taste

We always have some fine bottles for whisky open for tasting.  These can be found on either of our tasting barrels or if not on show then just ask as we store some out back as we do not want to swamp the barrels.

Sale Items

Prices change all the time as our various suppliers change their prices.  When we can, we offer some items for sale if we manage to get hold of them cheaper from other suppliers or we are price matching other sale prices.  Prices only last as long as we have stock at the cheaper prices available.
