What an incredible place! Such an incredible selection of fine whiskey, very knowledgeable bartender, Juliette, friendly and incredibly clued-up on her whiskey! Try the Caol Ila! 😍 Definitely a “come back”

Great experience for the whiskey connoiseur, enthusiast, beginner and alcoholic alike. It is a good opportunity to try different types of whiskeys without having to invest in buying bottles. Great range of whiskeys available, and very interesting background knowledge prior to the tasting.
