About Alexander & James

Changing the way you buy, give and discover premium spirits

Issue: 1

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

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.

Our 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 limited edition single malts and a range of Johnnie Walker blended whiskies.

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 gifting. 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.

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 monthly magazine you can read pertinent features and interviews, news on upcoming events and tastings, seasonal cocktail recipes, bartender tips, as well as a broader perspective on a modern life lived well.

Alexander & James is currently exclusive to the UK and Germany. But we have plans to expand across Europe. In the meantime, we’d love to know what you think of our website and service, so please drop us a line.
