Edinburgh Great Grog Wine Merchants

Edinburgh has a number of good, innovative independent wine merchants, amongst which has to be the memorably-named Edinburgh Great Grog Wine Merchants

logoOffering wine by internet, mail and a real shop this looks to be a fun and interesting source of great wines. The large range of wines looks to be keenly-priced – and free delivery is offered on a case of 12 bottles.

The online ordering system is a bit basic, but there is plenty to offer with the downloadable (pdf) list – but calling into the shop looks worthwhile, to browse through the offerings and special offers.
EXPERIENCE:- Over 65 years of professional drinking, tasting and sober study between us.(21 for Richard, 11 for Simon, 11 for Mat, 11 for janice, 7 for Heather, 100+ for Red (at least!)
All wines are individually taste tested (before listing & then regularly after)…. & then the samples taken home by us, just to make absolutely sure the wine at the bottom is the same as at the top.
Frequent Offers and Bargain Bin-Ends.
Most of our products are from small, individual, quality, family-owned producers. I would say “boutique” wineries, but that would intimate expensive & we ain’t that.

Tastings are offered (not just in Edinburgh).
