SECRET CELLAR, The

Kent wine merchant The Secret Cellar is based in Tunbridge Wells:

 

  • logoWe offer top quality hand crafted wines from premium and boutique producers around the world, many of whom we know.
  • Each wine has been tasted and quality checked by Mike and the team.  Only the very best get on our list – wines that we enjoy and that we think are great value.
  • We offer interesting and unusual wines that you won’t find in your local high street or supermarket.
  • Our wines are always fairly priced, as we cut out the middle man.  Our pricing is also very transparent – no marking wines up hugely to then offer big discounts.

A beautifully designed website – just a touch of animation/flash to keep things interesting. Did I see somewhere that there are 800 wines on their list? All the boxes are ticked with good representation from Chile, Burgundy, Bordeaux, Australia etc etc. Impossible to pull out just a few recommendations, especially when you take into account the 45 strong range of spirits, various special offers, mixed cases and 40 odd ports!

Prices begin at £5.99. You can down load the price list in a PDF file for printing and off-line perusing. There is also a very entertaining PDF magazine that combines staff recommendations, producer profiles and loads more. All very professionally produced.

Tastings offered. Overall a great looking company and worth investigating.

Voted as one of the UK’s Top 50 Independent Wine Merchants 2017 in the wine trade magazine Harpers.
