Bringing you the Up to Date offers and information from Windermere Wine Stores

Wine Store Added

Windermere & Ambleside Wine Stores now has an on-line wine store.

Windermere Wine Stores and The Malt Lounge is delighted to add their comprehensive Wine List to their internet Site. Finally, we have taken the plunge & added a selection of wine to our already successful on-line whisky website (

Delivery of WINE is free to any address within a 20 mile radius of our Windermere Store (minimum of 12 bottles). Outside this area, we will use a Courier & there will be a small charge for this service.

As Independent Wine Merchants we can offer wine from smaller producers; we carefully select our entire range & can in turn offer customers a free Food and Wine Matching Service (email us or call in-store). This is very popular for those wanting to try something different for a special dinner party or just to expand their knowledge of wine.

We offer glass hire, Sale or Return for Party Planning & are happy to work alongside your caterers (or with yourselves) to ensure any event runds seamlessly.


Exciting Gift Idea

Replicating the sample bottles sent to Douglas Laing & Co. from stock held at the Distilleries – these smaller 20cl bottles appear to have been hand written by one of the team  pulling the sample. Douglas Laing & Co. select specific bottlings from the 70cl capacities and fill first about 150-200 of the 20cl bottles – so these are little “rarities” – small bottles, in small quantities, from a very small bottling, from a small family company.  

On one level, they do allow the consumer to taste a small amount before investing in the larger bottle (for himself or a Club). On a wider level they are also super gifts. Something truly different, natural stylish and  unique in their presentation. We think they are stunning and have sold them very well in both of our retail outlets. For comprehensive tasting notes take a look at our section on Douglas Laing. You will find a fine selection of varying styles of the 20cl Old Malt Cask Advance Samples here with really good tasting notes.

It is about time that whisky drinkers had something to delight over & we think these are truly pleasing – excellent whiskies, with varying finishes (sherried etc.) presented in a very stylish way.

We will certainly be using them as gift ideas. All the information the recipient may need is contained on the label in an honest and interesting way. What more can you ask for?
