Summer Sale on Saturday 5th August
We are pleased to offer another diverse sale of Wines & Spirits once again. This popular and growing sale seems to come around quicker every time.
We start with some collections of Whisky from Dumfries, Military Service and others which include some increasingly rare single malts by the Scottish Malt Whisky Society, Connoisseurs Choice & Rare Malts series. There are signed bottles from The Scottish Parliament, House of Commons and House of Lords, a Complete Collection of Premiers 15 yr old depicting all the Conservative Prime Ministers from Sir Robert Walpole to John Major, some Regimental bottlings plus many others dating back many years. We also found a number of good bottles of Cognac for you to consider. For the cocktails and the exotic we have a range of Gins, Rums, Tequela, Liqueurs and other spirits from around the world.
We have a smaller selection of Ports this time but still including some good vintages and bolstered with a selection of Marsala, Madeira, Sherry, Cinzano and other fortified wines which are reported to be gaining popularity.
There is a fine Krug Champagne from 1964 and a range of fine wines from Chateau Talbot, Chateau Musar, Chateauneuf-du-Pape and many more including everyday brands and some Magnums. This time we have a number of younger Rose and white wines for those warm summer evenings.
