Milroy's Milroy's (Spirits Shop)

Very disappointing. Not the shop it used to be. Just being informed it is Milroy's by name only, and owned by a chain now.

Gerry's Gerry's (Spirits Shop)

Great shop on the whole, but not too keen on the fact you cannot walk around and browse. If what you're looking for is not in the window, you have to ask for it. A shame really, because they must have some hidden gems.

Vintage House Vintage House (Spirits Shop)
22 June 2010

A wonderful shop with a great selection of malt whisky - the expensive glass cabinet section at the back of the shop is mind-blowing. The rum selection has to be one of the best in London and the tequila choice is outstanding.

One criticism... I usually go to Vintage House in the afternoon when the staff there are friendly, amicable and knowledgeable about all their products (the big guy there is not shy with samples of malts and Keith is the man you want to see about rums). However, I made a mistake once and went in around 9.15am on a Tuesday and met a rather obnoxious fellow who made you feel like you were disturbing him (which is weird as I found the height he was wearing his trousers rather disturbing) and his knowledge of rum was questionable.

On the whole though, an excellent and interesting place to spend an AFTERNOON!!
