One word: AMAZING
I always find myself trolling through the Whisky Exchange website dreaming about drams that are out of my price range. When my wife and I planned our recent trip to the UK I was thrilled to see that they have an actual brick and mortar shop situated within Vinopolis. I immediately called them up to see if they had some rare scotch in house (a '76 and an '82). They did not, but promised they would have them delivered within 48 hours. Perfect!
Fast forward a week and there I was... walking through Borough Market headed towards the Whisky Exchange. While the construction in the area made finding the entrance a bit confusing, I eventually made my way into the Valhalla of scotch drinkers.
They had my items ready, helped me with the tax-free shopping (which ultimately turned into a waste of time, but that's not on them, that's on the tax refund bastards!), and were a joy to work with.
What can I say. This is THE place to buy whisk(e)y!
I was enticed into shopping here after my fabulous encounter at the Rum Experience. The company name is an understatement as it's way more than a whisky emporium. It was my new-found affection for a specialist rum that drew me in. The range of rums is almost overwhelming, with prices from around £14 to a mind-boggling £1500.
I came away with the deliciously warm and aromatic Guyanese XM exponent I'd been seeking, at £18.99. Staff were helpful and patient in spite of their busy-ness. I discovered another bottle I'd been considering (Angostura 1919) at my local Waitrose, a few days later, at a slightly lower price than was offered here. So, it might be worth your while shopping-around, before you buy, if you have the luxury of time and are counting the pennies. Although, for choice and hard-to-find items, their offering is hard-to-beat.
A fantastic shop, superb range of whisky that can be very hard to find anywhere.
Duncan the manager is incredibly knowledgle about whisky and is very good at giving advice on suitable whiskies for you.
The best whisky shop in London.
Excellent! Speedy! Perfect packaging and coms! Great range of whisky! Also, great: Baileys Hazelnut Flavour Cream Liqueur, Major Pistacchino Pistachio Liqueur, Tequila Rose Strawberry Cream Liqueur and Nuvo Sparkling Vodka Liqueur.
I absolutely love this place, it situated in the vinopolis by Borough Market, so you have to enter via Laithwaites or the front entrance to the vinopolis. There selection of whiskys is quite amazing, they specialize in Scotch, but have a wide selection of whiskys from all over the globe, and they don't just stop there, you can get a good selection of other spirits to, rum, tequila, vodka, you name it, they have it. They also hold taster evenings which are very good, i went to a bourbon one and it was very interesting, plus you got to knock back some very fine bourbons to, so keep a eye out for those, you can sign up to there news letter on there blog page.
I'm a big fan of American bourbons and this is without a doubt the best shop in the entire country for both bourbons and single malts.
I find their prices to be very competitive and the staff are both well informed and happy to assist.
Even if you just enjoy an occasional dram of whisky this venue is still for you. On the other hand if you live and breathe whisky then this will be an Eden! Its run by two brothers Sukhinder and Rajbir Singh. It could take you two hours of browsing because it has a vast library of whisky. But the brothers are on hand to give you top info.
If there is a better whisky shop in London, I haven't found it. They have recently expanded so that means more whisky goodness is available. A wide selection and good prices keep me coming back.
I also like how the location is near the Borough Market allowing me to go there for fresh veg and groceries, than the Whisky Exchange for essentials.
Fine and rare spirits. Whiskies, Rums, Gins, Tequilas, Cognacs and other Brandies, liqueurs and plenty more.
