Whisky in Belgium?

Postby Nock » Thu Aug 03, 2006 1:33 am

I have a friend who is going to be passing through Belgium in a few days and has offered to pick me up some whisky.

I really want him to bring back two bottles of Ardbeg Still Young.
(as it will never make it here to Seattle)

Any one know of a good shop for me to send him to??
or would it be available at the Duty Free Shop??

Anyone?

Belgium is about as close to whiskyheaven as you can get... :wink:

http://www.whiskycorner.be
http://www.tasttoe.com
http://www.corman-collins.be/francais/whisky.html
http://www.thewhiskyhouse.com/

are the main importers of whisky into belgium, with all of them a selection that surpasses 1000 malts
they are about the biggest....

and then there are a couple of others on this site as well

http://whisky.start.be/
http://www.drankenshop.be/whiskys.php also have a very big selection

Hope this helps,
Paul

I don't think he will find Ardbeg Still Young at the duty free: it wasn't there last time I was there.
As for some shops,it depends in which town he will visit.
If you can give some more details...
