Royal Mile Whiskies to launch Drinkmonger retail chain

10 May, 2011

Edinburgh-based retailer Royal Mile Whiskies is opening a new shop under the banner of The Drinkmonger.

The store in Pitlochry, Perthshire, is being created on the site of a former Haddows off-licence and will feature an extensive wine range as well as spirits and cigars.

The company said: “Our vision is that The Drinkmonger shall grow into a small chain of quality wine and spirit merchants, sharing the same desire for quality of range and service that exists throughout our business.”

The first store has been conceived by Edinburgh agency Contagious Design, and will have a larger sales area than the Haddows shop.

Royal Mile, which was established in 1991 and has a branch in London as well as an online business, is currently recruiting a manager and assistant manager for the Drinkmonger store.

Talking terroir

When Bordeaux was in fashion, it seemed almost logical that we should fetishise winemakers. Here were people responsible for brilliant acts of blending, across large estates and multiple grape varieties, including superstars such as cabernet sauvignon and merlot. These days, fashion has moved on and pinot noir is ascendant. As a result, the star of the winemaker has fallen and we find ourselves following a new star in the sky: terroir.
