In late 2002, we opened our second Royal Mile Whiskies on Bloomsbury Street, in London. Close to the vibrant shopping areas of Oxford Street and Covent Garden, the shop provides the same impressive range of whiskies that you would find in Edinburgh. We also stock a comprehensive range of other spirits, beers and cigars.

As the wider drink industry has changed, then so have we. Offering an ever expanding selection of non-whisky spirits and beers in a shop called Royal Mile Whiskies has its limitations! So 2011 brought the opening of two further shops called Drinkmonger, in Pitlochry and the Bruntsfield area of Edinburgh. Offering an extensive range of wines, beers and spirits this has then led to the development of www.drinkmonger.com. Read more at our Drinkmonger page here.
