Spring Sale of Vintage & Modern Wines & Spirits

We are pleased to present another selection of finds from our various Regular and returning Clients, house clearances and those who have found us online.

As has become habitual, we kick off with Whisky. Starting with some limited examples of The Macallan, Glenfarclas, Glemorangie, Ardbeg Pirate of the Hebridean, Glenfiddich (with a spelling mistake on the label), a Whisky made in India (with peat brought over from Scotland to add flavour) and others. We have old bottlings of Chartreuse, Gordons Gin and more. We have some novelty tasting sets, A Beam bowling Pin of Bourbon, a Whisky Advent Calender, various flavoured Gins, Fine old Cognacs by Remy Martin & Hennessy, a top Spanish Brandy & OX Rum too. Plenty of liqueurs and things for the cocktail cabinet plus some strange concoctions dreamed up like Sheep Dog Peanut Butter Whisky that want handling with care but most will bring pleasure.

This section is followed by Vintage Ports & Cigars (mostly Cuban) a Methuselah of Champagne, some Vintage and Non vintage fizz, some in pink and some British.

This time we have a variety of Beers, Lager & Ciders to collect or add to the BBQ ice bucket.

We are pleased to offer some fine wines with cases and part cases from a number of popular French Chateau in Margaux, Pauillac, St Emilion St Julien, Burgundy and others all from a number of vintages. Not forgetting  some fine wines from Spain & Australia to check out too.

For more everyday consumption we also have 80 cases of French “house” wine, a cancelled order from a London Restaurant and we will be having a little tasting available on view day!

See you there.
