Wine and spirits merchant Justerini & Brooks has opened a new store and tasting room in London’s Burlington Arcade to mark its 275th anniversary. 

Designed to create an “immersive retail experience” for new drinkers and collectors alike, the site is the first Justerini & Brooks store and tasting room hybrid. Offering wine and whisky by the glass, the shop features a drink-in lounge area for visitors, as well as a retail space and a dedicated Scotch whisky basement. 

Giles Burke-Gaffney, buying director for Justerini & Brooks, said: “Burlington Arcade offers a unique experience in London, from fine wines for future enjoyment to those ready to savour immediately in our first-floor lounge or at your own home.”

He said the wine range will have a focus on classic Bordeaux and Burgundy, adding: “We take pride in showcasing a carefully-chosen selection of wines that are currently at their peak and available for immediate enjoyment, as well as those with huge potential to drink in the future.”
