I visited this shop as part of the sights of Oban. I highly recommend a stop and visit to this shop, James has a great knowledge of whiskey and helped me greatly to select a rare whiskey ... Of all the stores that sell whiskey in Oban I wouldn't go anywhere else but this shop....

We Wondered into this lovely whisky wine and gin shop. The man serving us was very friendly and also extremely educated in the products he was selling . There was no heavy selling either which was good.

The man working was quite rude and apathetic. He was on the phone the whole time. My friend tried to have a conversation about whisky and he just brushed us off. Did not even end up buying a bottle as his poor attitude just put us off.

Went into this shop to buy a bottle of Japanese Whiskey, this guy was on the phone I was the only person in the shop he totally ignored me I was there for ten minutes, I eventually walked out in disgust, what a total Pratt this man is, a shop like this does not deserve your business, there is another Whisky shop opposite I suggest if you want to be treated with some respect don’t go into this shop

Absolutely incredible shop. They have an open fire and studded wingback chairs in there! When do you ever see that in a store?
We went in looking for whiskies that we wouldn't be able to find back home and they did not disappoint. James was a fantastic host to us and helped us select a several delicious bottles which he arranged to be shipped back to the states for us! You just couldn't ask for better service, or a more relaxed atmosphere.

My husband and I stopped in here while we were waiting for my parents to join us one afternoon, and were really pleased with the range and the knowledgeable recommendations of the staff member working. I love wine, so enjoyed seeing the range of different regions and varietals they stocked there, whilst my husband was in his element discussing all the world whiskys available (as if we hadn't been talking whisky our whole trip in Scotland!).

The store is well laid out, has an impressive range, is welcoming and - from what we experienced - staffed with people who know their product, and are passionate about it.

I popped into James' shop while in Oban. He was helping another customer and I was impressed with his knowledge and guidance. If you're not sure what you want, or need some expert help, James is your guy. He gave me great tips on smaller and newer distilleries to check out, as well as pubs that will help me check distilleries off my "weird whisky" single malt challenge. He even told me about the old and rare whisky festival. Smart, funny, and all around nice guy. Go say "hi" when you're in Oban and let him help you pick out the perfect souvenir. For non-whisky fans he stocks great local gins and wines too.

James was very helpful in choosing some great whiskies to take home. We had a lovely little tasting session and chose a couple beautiful single malts and liquors to share with friends. Thank you James for taking the time to suggest and sample Oban's great selections.

The owner didn't speak to us and spent the entire time using his iPad until some one he knew came into the shop and bought wine.We bought a bottle, paid for it and not once did he thank us for the purchase. If we had received better treatment we would have bought more. The following day we found a shop where the staff were both enthusiastic and helpful in Inveraray.
