The London branch is about 5 minutes walk from Tottenham Court Rd station, and well worth a look if you want to pick up some Scottish (and London) bottled beers. Selection changes regularly, and as well as larger Scottish micros (Stewart, Inveralmond, Harviestoun) you will also find the newer batch of interesting breweries - Elixir, Tempest, Alechemy, Windswept etc.). There has always been something new and of interest each time Iíve called in, and staff are always happy to chat about the selection and comment on specific beers. Check opening hours as itís not normally open in the evening, but late opening to 8pm on Thursdays has just been introduced.

Not really an impressive beer selection, but I found some goodies from Beavertown and Weird Beard. Go if nearby or if you are seeking fine Scottish Whisky. (Visited March 2nd 2014)

Primarily a whisky shop as the name suggests. Good range of London microbrews as well as a great selection of Scottish beers. Service is good, the staff have always been pretty helpful when Iíve visited. Iím not aware of any other decent bottle shops in the vicinty and this one can turn out quite handy.

Revisited Tuesday June 4th í13. Selection was better than on my previous call. 4 Cromarty offerings, 1 from Tempest and they continue to stock the newer London Micros with Partizan and Wild Card available in addition to those id listed before.
Visited on Friday lunchtime 4th Jan.
Whisky shop with a few shelves of good beers around 70% Scottish and 30% London based.
I reckon no more than 30/35 different beers available on my visit so perhaps stocks have thinned down since this was added to the site?
London beers from Kernel, Redchurch, Beavertown, Sambrooks and beers from around a dozen Scottish micros. Nothing from Tempest on this visit - which I was hoping for and only one Cromarty offering.
Service defaulted to 7 - nothing actually tempted me to purchase so gave a decent enough rating in this respect based on other reviews (as you canít choose n/a on this one!).
Worth popping into if youíre in the area or are specifically after Scottish micros - otherwise I wouldnít be going out of may way for this one!

This is a great place to check out if youíre looking for Scottish beer. Many of the best breweries in Scotland are well represented (Tryst, Cromarty etc). Thereís also a few local brews available too. Prices are reasonable. Overall, this is a nice resource for Scottish beer in a convenient location.

Whiskey shop between New Oxford Street and British Museum. Mainly a very good whiskey stockist but also has a decent range of the better Scottish beers including a few rare Orkney bottles. Now stocks London brewers as well such as Beaverton, Redchurch, Meantime. Didnít have any Kernels when I went in.

Small whisky shop located 2 minutes walk from Tottenham Court Rd tube station. This is the sister shop of the one located in Edinburgh. Due to customer demand their beer selection has increased dramatically over the last year or so. They had about 70 bottles at my last visit, which as you may expect focuses on Scottish breweries . Think a long the lines of Tempest, Black Isle, Williams Brothers, Tryst and Fyne. This is the only location in London to my knowledge to get beer from some of these brewers. The selection includes several one-offs such as Black Isle Black Islay and Fraoch 22. There is also beer from some London locals like Redchurch and Kernel. Well worth a visit when in central London.

Great little shop in Bloomsbury. The emphasis is on whiskies here, but the store also has a very solid range of [mostly Scottish] beer. Iíve found numerous beers here that I havenít seen anywhere else in London. Prices are good. Staff is very friendly. One of the best places to get beer in central London.
