From the same owners as Dunnottar Wines and Spirits in Stonehaven, Deeside Drinks are an independent off-licence, with equal enthusiasm for wine, whisky and craft, artisan beers. They stock a particularly good selection from Scottish micro-breweries. Regular tastings of wine, spirits and beers are announced on their Facebook page and via Twitter.
The bigger brother of Stonehaven's Dunnottar Wines and Spirits is most probably the best off licence in Aberdeenshire. This modern day emporium carries a huge range of unusual and interesting beers, wines and spirits. Prepare to be overwhelmed with the sheer selection on the shelves but don't worry as the knowledgeable staff will expertly guide you and share their passion. For those with a penchant for mothers ruin they stock over 50 gins. There's a fantastic selection of beers from around the world including all the major players in Scottish brewing from micro breweries through to the big boys. A wonderful shopping experience with lots of hidden gems. Impossible to leave the shop empty handed. Keep an eye out on their Facebook Page for beers, wine and spirit tasting events including some great joint events with local eateries.
