Prestige Whisky: New online whisky shopJune 30th, 2009
There’s a new online whisky shop. They even will ship to the U.S. (for a fee). I had a quick look at the site, and they have some whiskies already posted up, along with a few books. I didn’t really check out the prices and how competitive they are. I also have no involvement with them. I’m just passing along the information. If you want to have a look, the press release I received is below, along with the link to their site and blog.
Announcing an exciting new ‘recession proof’ web based business specialising in rare and exclusive whisky that wants to capitalise on its expertise in the rare and exclusive whisky sector.
After twelve months of painstaking market research, product sourcing and web development, Prestige Whisky is really proud to announce our official on-line launch with effect from 23rd of June 2009. We’re working in partnership with a mixture of massive whisky brand owners and smaller independent distilleries. All of our support partners are local British firms where possible. For example our delivery company is a small firm based in Elgin, chosen because of the service synergies they offer our business whilst maintaining the Scottish roots.
Despite the effects of the credit crunch, Prestige Whisky are excited about the prospects for our new website bringing the best in rare and exclusive whisky to our customers.
We want to cheer up the nation and feel our focus on whisky as an aspirational lifestyle choice will enable both the connoisseur and new convert to whisky to enjoy some really fine examples of the ‘water of life’.
With some really exciting bottles available from as little as thirty five pounds rising to several thousands of pounds we feel we have something in our range to suit everyone.
As well as simply retailing whisky we will also be providing advice and feedback to our customers both over the phone and via our up to the minute news service. We’ll also be launching special additional shopping and whisky sourcing/auction services during our first few months of trading.

We are an ambitious new United Kingdom based business founded in 2008 who feel that at a time of economic downturn it’s our duty to set up and grow a thriving business which is fun and shows the ‘naysayers’ that Britain is not on it’s knees. In fact quite the contrary – At Prestige Whisky we believe that the British people know when to let their hair down and have a ‘wee dram’, whilst at the same time supporting the work ethic which drives Prestige Whisky forward. We’re also at pains to make sure our local communities benefit from our success and we’ll bear this in mind when we need to recruit pro-active and skilled people from within the UK.
We feel that although we are starting small this business has massive potential even as the credit crunch bites. People still need something to cheer them up and also to enjoy giving to friends and colleagues. With our unique ethos, custom designed website, exciting product range, expert knowledge and commitment to customer quality we view 2009 as a massively exciting time to be launching a new business.
