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?

Our Wee Whisky Shop

The Grail Doune, Central Scotland. Whisky, Gin and Scottish Craft Drinks Shop and Tasting Experience

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!
