About Us

Drinkmonger with its impressive range of wines, craft beers and specialist spirits as well as an extensive array of whiskies was launched by Royal Mile Whiskies in 2011 with the opening of two shops in Scotland.

The first of these opened in the heart of Pitlochry at the start of July 2011. It takes the things that we already specialised in (whisky, fine spirits, Havana cigars & pipes) and adds a very carefully selected yet comprehensive range of wines and beers. The shop is managed by Lesley Shaw, Brian Joseph and Jane Boon. If you’re heading up the A9 en-route to Speyside and the Highlands, please do take the brief detour into Pitlochry. Lesley and the team would be delighted to see you, and if you’re peckish we’re right next door to the wonderful Scottish Deli with its fine range of cheeses, great sandwiches, Illy coffee and other delicacies.

The second branch of drinkmonger is in Bruntsfield, Edinburgh. While Pitlochry is split 50:50 between wine and specialist spirits, the Bruntsfield drinkmonger has more space for an even larger variety of wines. With a fantastic selection of whiskies and fine spirits, plus an extensive range of world beers, this shop caters for every need. Alan McMillan is our branch manager and is assisted by Doug Bond. As you’d expect, our staff have a wealth of drinking and selling experience between them and are looking forward to your visit very soon.

Drinkmonger will also continue to supply trade businesses, as bar owners and bartenders have come to us with looking to make the most of our prices, good service and exceptional range.
