About Alexander & James

Changing the way you buy, give and discover premium spirits

Issue: 1

elcome to Alexander & James, the smart new online store dedicated to premium spirits and the craft, heritage and passion that go into making them.

We’re new on the internet, but we have over half a century of real life craftsmanship and heritage to back us up. Not coincidentally, our name is a tribute to two of the grandest spirits masters ever - Alexander Walker and James Buchanan - and we’re proudly backed by Diageo, the world’s leading spirits company.

Alexander & James’s vision is to provide the perfect blend of high-end drinks shopping, expert advice, editorial content and exclusive products. We strive for impeccable service, from helping you choose the ideal gift to easy ordering and prompt delivery.

We invite you to shop for fine spirits from Diageo’s best-in-class brands like Zacapa, Don Julio, Tanqueray and Cîroc. You’ll also find an enviable assortment of newly released Johnnie Walker whiskies and limited edition single malts.

About Alexander & James

We believe that the best drinks are those that are given, or shared, so at Alexander & James we put special focus on gifts. Our advice will help you buy for your father or mother, husband or wife, colleague or client. We encourage you to indulge yourself with a regular treat or impress that un-impressible someone with a remarkable gift.

Our carefully selected range of gift sets and individual accessories, including branded glassware, ice buckets and cocktail stirrers, helps you create the complete gift package.

Everything we send to you, be it a present to yourself or a bottle to wow someone else, will be sumptuously wrapped and delivered to your (or their) door.

The perfect blend of high-end drinks shopping, expert advice, editorial content and exclusive products

In our Discover articles, we tempt you to explore the history of different spirits, learn how they’re made and uncover the nuances that make each brand its own. If you want to know more about spirits, we’ll make you a connoisseur. If you want to throw a tasting or cocktail party, we’ll show you how. If you want to become a master of mixology, we’ll offer delicious cocktail recipes.

We’ll update our editorial content every month, making it relevant to the products you’re interested in. You can read pertinent features and interviews, news on upcoming events and tastings, seasonal cocktail recipes, bartender tips and other interesting titbits.

Alexander & James is exclusive to the UK and Germany for now, but we’ll soon be launching across Europe. In the meantime, we’d love to know what you think of our website and emails, so please drop us a line.
