About

Our shop is a paradise for all whisky lovers and those who would like to learn more about it.
You'll find our whisky store in the middle of Rotterdam's cosy neighbourhood 'het Oude Noorden'. WHISKYBASE.com is a store for everyone who wants to buy, smell or taste whisky. You are also welcome if you just want to take a look.

Our store carries hundreds of whiskies from all over the world. You will find American and Irish bourbon and whiskey, whisky from India and Japan, and of course Scottish whisky. There are whiskies to everybody's taste, from affordable and tasteful drinking whiskies up to exclusive malts with a somewhat higher price tag. Of course there are single malt whiskies, but we also have blends, new spirits and grain whisky.

We are specialised in independent bottlers, who bottle and sell whisky under their own label. In our store you'll find dozens of bottlers from different countries.

    Great Whisky shop in the heart of Rotterdam. 

    Unfortunately almost no parking near the shop.

    I had ordered some bottles from their webshop over the last months, but Sunday 23rd of December 2018 was the first time I visited their shop. The friendly staff took all the time to talk whisky with the customers including myself.

    At home I had my eyes on a Ben Nevis from Le Gus't which I could taste in the shop prior to making the final decision. Needless to say that I took the bottle home. 2 Other bottles and a Ben Nevis gift sample accompanied me on the way home.

    Thanks guys. I will for sure be bakc!

    During my recent visit to Rotterdam for the 2018 Gathering, I finally had the opportunity to visit the Whiskybase Shop near the city center. Only a few minutes walk from Metro station ‘Stadthuis’, the shop is nestled in a quiet, little side road. I’d call it a ‘geek’s paradise’, a place that embraces you with its welcoming atmosphere, tranquility and the nice selection and presentation of bottles on the shelves.

    All whisky regions and countries are covered, be it Single Malt, Blend, Bourbon or international spirit. Independent bottlings include the Whiskybase Archives series, and there is a variety of open bottles available for tasting on site. Granted, the prices are a bit higher than your average online retailer, but that is more than compensated by the staff’s outstanding service and passion for the water of life.

    After I tasted one of the Archives new Springbank bottlings, I regretted that space in my baggage was limited, and I had already purchased half a dozen of bottles to take home. I will definitely return to the shop when I am in Rotterdam in the future, and I can only recommend you to do the same.
