EXPERIENCE - Richard established Great Grog in April 1999. We have over 150 years of professional drinking, tasting and sober study between us. (34 for Richard (10 in Oddbins; set up Grog in 1999), 24 for Simon, 24 for Janice, 20 for Heather, 28 for John B, 26 for John P & at least 31 for Red (a life sentence commuted for good behaviour), Clare is a new start with only 6 years time served

Delivery normally 2 working days by DHL courier...or oft quicker if via our own vans in Edinburgh

All wines are individually taste tested (before listing & then regularly after).... & then the samples taken home by us, just to make absolutely sure the wine at the bottom is the same as at the top.

Frequent Offers and Bargain Bin-Ends.

Most of our products are from small, individual, quality, family-owned producers. I would say "boutique" wineries, but that would imply expensive & we ain't that.

Constantly evolving, often exclusive wines (a range of 500+ wines in stock)

Cheap....oops...I mean...good value (Margins less than "markets" that alledge "super").

"Scruffy rather than Stuffy" Rose Murray Brown MW, in "The Scotsman" 2001. Surely she meant "friendly & knowledgeable staff & no suits"?

Regular Tastings, fairs & Events for you (& us too) to try our wares. We aren't frightened of opening bottles to show you how good our wines are (See EVENTS page). 

FREE DELIVERY ON ORDERS OVER £99 to one mainland UK address. Delivery charge on orders below £99 is £17. Single bottles can be bought from our Shops in Dalkeith Road, Pleasance or Warehouse in Leith

The largest range of beer in Scotland (probably), a stocktaking nightmare = 370+ beers 500+ wines & loads of spirits/liquers)

WE like drinking our own wines so you probably will too (all things being equal) Winesearcher ***** rating

Cheers, Richard & the great grog gang!

"We've seen the new age of wine retailing... Great Grog is an Internet and telephone wine merchant, quietly situated in a warehouse in Edinburgh. By avoiding the High Street, they avoid High Street rents and can pass on these savings to their customers... Great Grog's well chosen list has some outstanding bargains."
