The warehouse branch of this local wine and spirit specialist sells a wide range of Old and New World wines and boutique spirits. The staff are well informed and good at giving tips if you want to try something unusual. Particular strengths are the rum and gin selections, and a range of excellent Spanish wines from lesser-known bodegas. The Thursday evening wine tastings are always good value, showcasing wines by region.
In 1874 when James Aitken became a wine merchant in Dundee, he could not have imagined how the world of wine would change or that nearly 140 years later his family would still be providing customers with the same knowledgeable and dependable Aitken' service.
James built Aitken Wines on foundations of quality, service and value for money, and these traditions have been solidly maintained by four generations. Aitken's have been buying wines for over a hundred years, a century of experience that gives us confidence in buying wines from every wine-making region in the world. From the great vineyards of Bordeaux and Burgundy through the majesty of Italy and the rising stars of Europe and the New World, we talk wine face to face with the winemakers and we buy from them with one aim in mind – to find the best wines at the best prices for our customers.
Despite the heritage, the whole approach is modern – the website is visually attractive and easy to navigate with online ordering – a wide choice of carefully selected wines – and a shop!
