My wife and I stopped in to pick out some whisky and beers. They have a huge selection of whisky and are happy to discuss them with you. The staff were friendly and gave us some nice recommendations and advice for our trip.

I may be at fault here. I’m not a whisky drinker and I have / had no intention of purchasing any alcohol at all. I was interested in joining a small group and enjoying a ‘whisky experience’, probably something more akin to a visit and...More
