Malted Shopping Guide #5: The Bon Vivant’s Companion
Another episode of my Malted Shopping Guide today, bringing you to one of Edinburgh’s boozy hidden gems, far from your usual whisky-for-tourists Royal Mile store, The Bon Vivant’s Companion is definitely a must-visit – especially for the aspiring bartenders (in need of some uncommon bitters or weird spirits for your cocktail experiments? This store may turn into heaven!).
The Bon Vivant’s Companion opened its doors in May 2011. Situated next door to the award winning The Bon Vivant bar and restaurant, it is a modern take on a traditional wine & spirit merchant offering independent fine wine, spirits, beers & other specialist libations. The Companion is focused on personal service & staff are well-informed & welcoming.The Companion has a secret event space that pops-up an array of bespoke events throughout the year such as wine tastings, product launches & private masterclasses.
