Our story

Bourbon vendor


about us

Bourbon Vendor was founded in 1999 when we opened our shop in Raleigh North Carolina. Today, The Whisky Shop is one of the largest specialist retailer of whisky in the In NC with 2 more shops in Houston Texas and Maine, a boutique in Paris and an active online shop.

Our mission

At Bourbon Vendor, we offer customers a unique shopping experience where they can browse (and in some cases sample) a range of over 400 different whiskies, including many independent bottling, releases exclusive to Bourbon Vendor Shop, single cask expressions, a wide range of international whisky, great gift items and allocations of the rarest and most desirable limited releases.

ur mantra is ‘unlocking the mystery of whisky.  By that we aim to un-complicate the apparently complicated, speak plain language and deliver excellent service to our customers. From single malts and blends, to grain and world whiskies, our staff are here to help you find the right whisky for you.

Decided by years of independent customer reviews, the feefo award is our most cherished prize for our online service.
