The Classic Cask Collection

Milroy’s of Soho was founded by John ‘Jack’ Milroy in 1964 when he opened his wine shop at No. 3 Greek Street, in the heart of London’s swinging-sixties Soho district. This was the time and place to be – the epicentre of the pleasure-seeking world of ‘modern’ music, fashion and of course the wines and spirits that fuelled the era.

Before long Milroy’s was best known for selling the largest selection of whisky in London, perhaps even the world. John and his brother, Wallace, were delivering to the biggest names in the city; even the prime minister was a regular customer.

Over time the brothers established Milroy’s as a whisky institution: Jack went on to bottle many whiskies under his own name “John Milroy” and Wallace wrote the still revered ‘Malt Whisky Almanac’ and ‘Whisky In Your Pocket’. By the time Jack sold his “John Milroy” whisky brand to Berry Bros & Rudd Ltd in 2009, the name on the label had become synonymous with quality far beyond the UK.

We are pleased to represent this exceptional brand of single cask, single malt Scotch whiskies in the USA. Each bottling outturns near 400 bottles and when they are sold out they are gone forever.
