About The Whisky Exchange
The Whisky Exchange (TWE) is a family business founded in 1999, and has since grown to be the internet’s No.1 specialist retailer of whisky and other spirits, serving thousands of satisfied customers every week.
The Whisky Exchange has flourished since the turn of the Millennium, surviving the dotcom crisis and continuing to diversify and strengthen its business. TWE's remarkable growth in the last five years has been driven by genuine word-of-mouth recommendations based on our excellence of product, fairness of price and reliability of service.
As a family company we believe that these qualities are what our customers value. As a long-established leader in our field, we don't need to use cheap marketing tricks to get attention. We let our hard work do the talking.
Our philosophy is simple - we never rest on our laurels. We are constantly trying to find new products with genuine heritage and quality in all categories of spirits and liqueurs to add to our range, while continuing to innovate and improve our online functionality and the outstanding customer service that has won us a loyal and ever-expanding fanbase.
The Whisky Exchange has won a string of industry awards and is the current Independent Spirits Retailer of the Year (Drinks Retailing Awards 2011) and Whisky Magazine’s Online Retailer of the Year (Icons of Whisky 2011). The company has won both of these prestigious awards for the last three years in a row.
The Whisky Exchange currently stocks over 2500 whiskies, of which about 1900 are Single Malt Scotch whiskies, with 200 Bourbons available and the remainder being made up of Blended Scotch, Grain, Irish, Japanese and other whiskies from countries including Wales, South Africa, India, Sweden and Australia.
In addition to this there are over 275 rums, around 200 vodkas, over 300 Cognacs/Armagnacs, 100 gins, 120 tequilas and over 400 specialist liqueurs.
In all, something in the region of 5000 products are active on the site and available to order online at any given time, and this number is increasing as we continue to stock the best of the thousands of new products released each year.
