The Aberdeen Whisky Shop

For the best of Scotch whisky (not whiskey), be sure to check out The Aberdeen Whisky Shop. Besides the wonderful selection of only the choicest whiskys, they also occasionally host Aroma Academy, workshops that teach you to appreciate the subtleties of different varieties of whisky so that you know what to look for in the future.


As the traditional centre for commerce for the whole of northeastern Scotland, Aberdeen has been the region’s number one shopping centre for hundreds of years and boasts a wide range of shops and malls. The traditional main streets are Union Street and George Street, which offer superb swanky shopping, while the Bon Accord, St. Nicholas and Trinity shopping centres offer visitors the chance to buy high-quality items indoors, as well as Castlegate Market, a cobblestone square that hosts a market seven days a week.
