Welcome to The Grail

We’re a wee boutique craft drinks shop based in Doune, Central Scotland.  We love all things craft, quality, local and most importantly, tasty!! Pop in for a browse, have a try and discover something new!

Single Malt Whisky from Scotland is our particular area of expertise. We love a we dram and we like to do our homework! We also have a wealth of knowledge and experience in other spirits such as gin, rum, and vodka. As well as spirits we have a selection of wine, beer and liqueurs. We also offer non-alcohol soft drinks and mixers for your drinks.

We can advise you on tastes and flavours if you are buying for a gift and not sure what to go for. However if there is something more specific you want but we don’t have on our shelves we can order it in for you.

We have a tasting room where we host regular Whisky Tastings, Gin Tastings and other tasting events. Besides this we also host regular tastings out and about. Keep an eye on our Tastings and Upcoming Events pages to keep up to date. You’ll also find everything we’ve got going on, on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages.

Fancy something a little different? Come tasting with us

Check out what events we have going on….filled with both alcoholic and non-alcoholic delights!  Or you can always book yourself a bespoke tasting and we can explore the wonders of the Scottish alcohol scene together! 

About Us

Who We Are

The Grail was founded by us, Jen and Rachel, in 2018. We decided to go it alone, having worked in the industry for a number of years and having gathered a wealth of knowledge and experience, why not open a whisky shop?

Whisky has had some serious competition from other Scottish craft spirits in recent years. We therefore quickly realised, this couldn’t just be a whisky shop. Gin, due to its recent popularity, has become another area of expertise for us. However, Rum, Vodka, Beer and Wine are things we find ourselves learning more and more about all the time. We love to learn and we love to pass on our knowledge. Come and browse our selection and ask us questions!

If you fancy trying something new but are not quite sure where to start, let us know your tastes and we can recommend. We can even give you a taste from selected bottles to see what you think.

Tastings

Our Tasting Experiences are informative and eye-opening but mostly lots of fun! Come and try a selection of Whisky, Gin or Scottish Spirits and let us tell you all about them! And you tell us what you think! After all, that’s what its all about!

We can do tastings at your event for example, birthday parties, club dinners, work nights out or stag and hen do’s. Just give us some notice and we can organise a bespoke tasting session just for you.

Contact us to enquire.

Sourcing Bottles

Let us help you find that bottle you’ve been looking for. Since we opened the shop in December we have helped source bottles for many of our customers on request. We will try our best to get what you are looking for, just pop in or send us a message and we will see what we can do.

P.s We welcome dogs here at The Grail, we love them (only slightly) more than human visitors!

Check out what we offer in the way of whisky, gin and other tastings here . Also all our our upcoming events are all available to browse here!

If you are looking for something more bespoke, or maybe more specific, just get in touch and we will see what we can do! Due to being a small independent business we are relatively flexible with what we can do. Likewise, if there is a particular bottle you want to get your hands on let us know, we can’t promise anything, however we will always try our best!
