About

Best of Whiskies

Our specialised and well-experienced whisky professionals have an excellent knowledge of the whisky industry in general and fine & rare whiskies in particular. We do our own tastings to guarantee the best advice and to support buying and selling.

Through our extensive network and direct contacts in the industry and with the distilleries in Scotland, we are able to purchase our whisky at very competitive rates. We also have a large network of private collectors, which frequently sell some of their stock. This way we can guarantee the provenance and an outstanding customer service.

We continue to stock the very best of new whiskies released each year and scan the collectors market on a daily basis, for an eminent selection of rare and antique whisky gems.

"Best of Whiskies" is slowly emerging out of the shadows of it very successful parent, "Best of Wines" to become not only an European, but a GLOBAL force in Whisky.

Under the stewardship of Nils, their resident (and aptly named) "Whisky Specialist", they are slowly filling their shelves with "Unicorns", "Dinosaurs", and even the odd "Loch Ness Monster"! Call it what you will, they are the go-to-place for serious collectors and the occasional drinker alike. Nils is a fountain of knowledge on all things whisky and over the many hundreds of hours of conversations that we've had, I've noticed an intense passion for the industry. The staff are all friendly, very knowledgeable, approachable and eager to assist in any way possible, no task is too small or too large. As past examples - Nils have sourced rare bourbons for me valued in the thousands, and even gone as far as specially ordering some 2 year old Willett for me, which he sold to me for a small mark-up over cost! . Despite their size, they maintain an intimate feel. Their prices are very reasonable and correctly reflects the value and scarcity of the bottle. They always appreciate feedback and are at all times open to offers (and even trades). So if you are a seasoned collector, or looking to start, drop Best of Whiskies a line and ask for Nils who would be happy to have a chat and share one of his many amusing stories!
