We will be joining some top luxury brands in the beautiful and ornate County Arcade - a cultural landmark in itself. Located within the centre of Leeds’ hip shopping district, The Victoria Quarter, it is a Grade II listed landmark. This our first store in the city, and second in the wider Yorkshire area after York, and we're thrilled to be opening during Leeds’ Year of Culture.

We'll be bringing heaps of whisky expertise, along with our large offering of whiskies from across Scotland and further afield. The Whisky Shop truly is the perfect place to find something unique, different and interesting, and our shops offer the opportunity to sample something new. We're excited for W Club members in the surrounding area who will have a new membership hub, and be able to attend lots of tastings in the years to come.

The Whisky Shop’s director and co-owner, John Beard, commented:  

‘We’ve been looking for the right opportunity to expand into the area for some time. Leeds is a vibrant city which has attracted plenty of luxury retailers, and so single malt whisky brands want to be there. With an ever-changing range of exclusive whiskies not to be found anywhere else, we look forward to welcoming our Yorkshire online customers in person.’

Local whisky lovers, and inquisitive members of the public alike, are invited to come down to our grand opening. The date is to be confirmed, however, you will be able to keep up to date with the event on our Facebook and Instagram. We're holding competitions on social media in the run up to the big day, too!

The grand opening itself will offer the opportunity to win goodies from the likes of Bowmore, The Macallan, Redbreast, Midleton, and The Dalmore in person, as well as W Club memberships!
