Milroy’s of Soho, opened in 1964 by Jack Milroy, originally as The Soho Wine Market. The store ran as the local, friendly off-licence selling Beaujolais, Macedonian reds, a small selection of blended scotch and four single malts. This all changed when Jacks brother, Wallace Milroy, joined the business in 1969. the two charismatic brothers grew the whisky collection and helped drive the public knowledge of whisky, to become perhaps the most influential whisky retailers in the world. What started out at 10 grew to 25, then 150; by 1993, when Jack sold the business, Milroy’s stocked nearly 600 single malts, and the shop’s fame was global. For their efforts, we thank both Jack and Wallace for helping promote our beloved sprit.
