Milroy's of Soho

Soho

A Greek Street stalwart selling a huge range of whisky, rum and Cognac.

The range is enormous, with around 400 from Scotland alone. There’s a large selection from £14.95, but fine and rare whiskies can cost up to £2,500, including some of Milroy’s own bottlings. Other spirits are covered too, with carefully selected Cognac, Armagnac and rums – the brand launched its first own-brand single cask rum (from the Four Square distillery in Barbados) in spring 2010. What’s more, staff are knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and the shop runs regular tasting events for those looking to improve their knowledge and appreciation of whisky. Milroy’s started life as a wine merchant and wine remains an important part of the operation; the brand is now part of the Jeroboams group of wine merchants.

Where has this place been all my life?! Thankfully I stumbled across it during the week. I'm not a fan of whisky at all so would usually steer well clear of the shop upstairs, however I am so glad that I ventured in, through the bookcase, and down to some of the best cocktails I have ever tried - WHICH ARE NOT ALL WHISKY BASED. There is something for everyone, whatever your chosen poison. Also the staff are so friendly and welcoming, we received what felt like service specifically tailored to us, with cheerfulness and familiarity that is hard to come by in London.


I would recommend this to everyone but I do want it to stay somewhat unknown. I can't understand why Time Out only gave this place 3 stars, so felt that I had to review. Well worth a visit!

Such a great selection of whisky at this classic Soho boutique. The whisky bar on the shop floor is staffed by passionate and enthusiastic staff. If you push the bookcase at the back, it reveals a hidden cocktail bar serving amazing cocktails!

great hidden gem in soho for sum non-pretentious cocktails that rival the best.

Amazing shop with great selection of whisky, some exclusive to them. me and the missus had a whisky in the bar within the shop and then went down to the vault in the basement - a great secret cocktail bar, great service and amazing drinks. tip - let the staff guide you as the menu is all originals and they nailed our drinks

Quirky, fun bar with great drinks (plenty of non whisky too) and friendly professional staff.
