London, Edinburgh, Hong Kong and, yes, Ayr. The south-west Scotland branch of this high-end international wine merchants might look like the odd one out on paper, but in fact this premises with its magnificent 250-year-old cellars – formerly Whighams of Ayr until a merger with Corney & Barrow in 1994 – is one of the longest-established wine merchants in the UK, set up in 1766 to supply the many great houses and estates in the surrounding area. Knowledgeable staff will help you negotiate a head-spinning range of clarets, burgundies and New World gems to find something suited to your taste an budget, and can also assist with bottle-storage, wine tastings and event supply.
