3 Greek Street, W1D 4NX

Milroy’s started off as a humble wine shop in Greek Street. Soon after Scottish single malts stormed the UK market, its founder Jack Milroy began stocking the largest whisky selection in London, with the prime minister being a regular customer. Today, with an established cellar and whisky bar, their passionate and knowledgeable staff can help you choose the perfect dram or gift with a tasting session. Their whiskies travel across the globe in over 200 varieties (including Milroy’s own bottled range), from Scotland, to Japan, Sweden and Oz.

Scotch Malt Whiskey Society

19 Greville Street, London, EC1N 8SQ

The Scotch Malt Whiskey Society is a club connecting like-minded whisky lovers founded by a group of friends in 1983. The members have since been buying and sharing their discoveries, establishing their selection of single cask whiskies as the widest in the world. To ensure that their fine selection remains in safe hands and palates, each whisky must win the approval of the Tasting Panel, before earning the classic society green bottle. Plus, with no chill filtration or interference whatsoever, all the whiskies are bottled at cask strength, allowing you to enjoy every dram as if straight from the barrel.
