The Whisky Shop
After serving 35 years in the Armed forces, Nick Ridout tells us about about his change of direction post-retirement...
"Evolution ...not revolution"
In October 2011 Nick Ridout and his wife Cathy purchased The Whisky Shop in The Bailgate, Lincoln.
The shop has been trading since 1976 and has established a loyal, local customer base and cemented a place within the community which Nick & Cathy have looked to develop and grow, their ethic has been “evolution, not revolution”.
Retired Army officer Nick and nurse Cathy have expanded the range, including more unusual whiskies and have introduced a wider selection of artisan gins and rums.
They also now sell wine from Georgia (the place where wine was invented) and Brandy from Armenia.
The Whisky Shop is their first business and whilst they have maintained the shops’ character they have also preserved the traditional values of the shop which has stood in it’s present form for more than 20 years. They have developed the online side of the business to be in keeping with the modern purchaser.
They have also introduced regular whisky tasting sessions and have a mailing list keeping them in touch with their customers.
