    Lots of craft beer, whisky and gin
    We won’t to a sake tasting on a Friday night in independent spirits downstairs tasting room. I knew they did whisky and gin events but I didn’t know they had sake too. I’ve already booked onto a whisky one this year for my friends birthday and they have some rare Japanese ones on it. The staff are super friendly and know their stuff and the range of beer is immense. Only down side is it isn’t a bar so it isn’t drink in for their beer.

    Best shop in Bath
    Independent Spirit of Bath the best shop in Bath, and I now buy all my alcohol exclusively from them. The staff are extremely nice and knowledgeable and are able to help me find the best drink for any occasion. The selection they have is wide ranging and always have what I need. Their tastings events are always enjoyable and the depth of their knowledge astounds me. All in all an absolute gem of a shop and would highly recommend everyone to go there.

    Best craft beer and spirits in Bath
    Honestly the best bottleshop I've ever visited. Staff are beyond friendly and will utilise their excellent curated knowledge to help tailor your purchase to exactly what was wanted. They stock an excellent range of spirits ranging from entry level to top shelf, from common everyday brands to rare and unusual spirits you won't find anywhere else. Fantastic selection of craft beer with a regularly changing selection. Good selection of cider as well. Regular tasting events as well to allow you to try new and exciting spirits with an expert. In summary a fantastic shop, with great products.

    Great selection and knowledgeable staff
    Indie Spirit has a fantastic selection of craft beer on the shelves and in the fridges to take away. I love the mini cocktail cans. Also a great selection of spirits and wine and staff to advise if you have queries. The tastings are always awesome and everyone is friendly and you don’t feel silly asking questions. Dogs allowed.

As independently-run beer/wine/spirits shops go, this is an absolute little gem! The staff I spoke to knew their carefully-curated range back-to-front and were able to expertly guide me towards a selection of high-quality, relevant products for the brief I went in with.

I love buying from these guys and they work very hard to make sure their shop is current and appealing. Proper, good old-fashioned GREAT SERVICE & sensible pricing.

My favourite craft beer shop in bath! With a great single malt whisky selection, and even loads of bottles of gin for when the mood strikes.

100% excellent

A great little bottleshop for craft beer but they have a whole room dedicated to whisky and one heck of a range. They do events downstairs but you need to book.

Fantastic shop for craft beer and hard to find spirits, Chris the owner is very knowledgable and helpful with picking out a bottle or three! Recommend going to some of their tastings, if you like quality drinks and you're in Bath visiting or live here then this is THE place to go!
