The guys at Dunnottar Wines and Spirits in Stonehaven have recently opened a 2nd shop in Banchory, called Deeside Drinks Emporium.

I popped in for a look today and came away with a bargain in a bottle of 18 year old Fettercairn from independent bottlers Gordon and MacPhail, and a few interesting beers – a raspberry beer, a black double pale ale from Brewdog, a single hop ale with elderflower and a pale ale from Orkney. I’m really looking forward to opening them!
