The Whisky Exchange Great Portland Street
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
A one-stop shop for all the finest whiskeys around, plus great wines and spirits too.
On the ground floor, an entire wall devoted to gin sits alongside a sensational selection of vintage Armagnac. Bartender favourites mezcal and vermouth rub shoulders with an eclectic wine selection curated by The Whisky Exchange’s head buyer – and Master of Wine – Dawn Davies. Explore the cellar, devoted entirely to whisky, and discover everything from the newest innovations to the rarest whiskies ever sold in the UK. Even better, come along to one of our regular in-store tasting events, hosted by some of the biggest names in the spirits business.
Sukhinder and Rajbir Singh – owners of The Whisky Exchange, Londoners and brothers – developed a passion for spirits from a young age after their parents, in 1971, became the first Asians to be granted a licence to sell alcohol in the UK, and opened an award-winning off-licence in West London. They now pride themselves on having perhaps the largest selection of whisky and fine spirits for sale anywhere in the UK.
Whether you’re an enthusiast or just browsing for a gift, our staff at Great Portland Street aren’t simply sales assistants. They are passionate about the drinks they sell, keen to share their knowledge and to help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
