A London institution with a warehouse-worth of spirits packed into its tiny Soho quarters. It has all the names you know, and dozens that you don’t, including 150 vodkas, 100 rums, plus 120 tequilas. And its selection of oddities is unrivalled. English elderflower vodka? Bulgarian rakia? The fun is in the browsing. Gerry’s prides itself on spotting the trends, being the first to bring you absinthe from the Czech Republic, cachaça from Brazil and Pisco from Peru. So the new taste? Fairtrade vodka. There’s also a host of liqueurs, vermouths, bitters and sirops to help you create a new trend of your own.
