    Fantastic service. Excellent choice.
    First time in Dornoch and found this gem of a shop. Michael was extremely knowledgable and was happy to spend time with us explaining loads of interesting information with no hard pressure for us to buy anything. Fantastic selection of spirits to look at and buy. Could have spent all day listening and sampling.

    We had an amazing whiskey tasting at this location with our guide, Michael. He was incredibly knowledgeable about everything around making whiskey and the in-depth history of it in Scotland. I am not even a whisky lover and i thoroughly enjoyed myself at this tasting! Would highly recommend.

We had a wonderful experience in the store. Michael was full off knowledge about the particular whisky that I ended up purchasing. Alo his choice of cigar to enjoy with my whisky was a perfect match

Loved the time in the shop and learning loads of new cocktail recipes. There is a huge selection of different and unique gins to see and Michael was happy to let us sample them. My husband loved the selection of whiskies too.

Superb friendly service and definitely a must visit.

It seems they are catering to the top end of the market and foreign tourists. Without a doubt the shop is attractive but they seemed to want us in and out quickly.
