bin there, got the drinks in?
Bin21 in Hexham’s Market Place is about to hit the ton. It’ll shortly stock 100 malt whiskies, plus a full range of wines, champagne, beer, cider and cigars.
But that’s not all – the North East’s largest independent beer, wine and spirits retailer has opened an upstairs lounge (Lounge@Bin21, above) in line with its sister outlet in Morpeth where customers can relax over a glass or two, a cocktail or a G&T. Basically, whatever’s available in the shop is on offer upstairs. Local beers from an ever-expanding list include a range from Allendale, Hadrian Border, High House Farm and Wylam, plus you’ll find Jack Cain’s Northumberland Gin, Lindisfarne Mead and regional liqueurs.
The shops’ online offer sees aproximately 140 best-selling wines and those that have been personall recommended by at least three customers – which is a great idea involving reasoned opinion.
Some fabulous ports for after dinner, great pre-lunch wines and totally relaxing malts simply add to the enjoyment of a fine cigar.
