Great Grog Bottle Shop is an award winning wine merchant based in Edinburgh run by John, Tom and (yes) Jerry, specialising in the sale of craft beer and wine. First and foremost, we simply love what we sell, and we're here to make sure you find something you'll love too.
Great Grog started in 1999 and the shop opened in 2005. We try to keep our wine and beer ranges as interesting and varied as possible - we wouldn't have it any other way. And as we love a good dram of whisky or the odd dash of gin from time to time, you'll find a rather lovely selection of single malts, gin and a variety of other spirits in store too.
Our "other half" is the (relatively) legendary Great Grog Warehouse, lurking down in the depths of Leith. All of the wine in the warehouse is available in the shop too: if you'd like to order online, the warehouse's website is here.
Our beer selection is comprehensive: at the last count (july 2017) we had over 420 different beers. Hand-picked by our resident beer geek(s), we have everything from easy-drinking pale ales, to gigantic barrel-aged stouts and barleywines. It's a global affair, too: beers from Belgium, Germany, USA, Netherlands, New Zealand and elsewhere grace our shelves as well as an extensive collection from British shores (including an unbeatable selection from Scotland). There really is something for everyone!
Our John, Tom and (yes) Jerry, really know their stuff (they say "practice makes perfect", after all...) and are always happy to give a recommendation or advice.If you haven’t been before, come and check us out, or find us on Twitter and Facebook!
