The new booze boy on the block

If you like alcohol, and more importantly, if you are quite discerning about the alcohol you want to consume, there is a place in Soho I can really recommend to you.

Amathus is a relatively knew kid on the Soho block, but it more than punches its weight in the variety stakes. Entering the shop is like entering a library dedicated to bottles rather than books - with huge and high shelves filled to the brim with bottles of every shape, size and colour of liquid you could possibly imagine.

You can find beers all the way up to the top shelf spirits, and plenty of interesting choices from around the world to choose from. This is in fact what they do really well, sourcing craft beers from Japan, vodkas from Russia, tequilas from Mexico - and many, many more options besides.

Ever fancied trying cinnamon liqueur? They have it. Chocolate? Of course (even Absinthe Chocolate, if you can believe that...). Want to go for something even more out there? How about a little bit of Pistonhead Crude Oil...

As you can see, there is more than enough to choose from, and across the four stores (as well as Soho there are stores in Knightsbridge, The City and Shoreditch) - add to that the special events they regularly have in store, as well as my favourite, the masterclasses, which take place across the four stores, and you have something approaching the perfect adult drinking emporium.

Enjoy your visit, and of course drink responsibly...
