Who says quality and quantity are mutually exclusive? Clocking in at over 200 bottles,
The Dominion League’s whisky stockpile polls strongly for both size and interest.
Scotch, naturally, dominates the range, but a focus on lesser-seen Scottish bottlings
helps distance the bar from the rest of Perth’s whisky set. Sweeten the deal with choice
selections from Ireland, Japan and Australia, and it’s easy to see why bottle-strokers flock
to this cosy basement den.
“We wanted to bring some quirkier stuff to the fore and make it more accessible for
people who want to try new things,” says bar co-manager Dimitri Rtshiladze.
“It’s easy to find really rare bottles that cost an arm and a leg but it’s harder to find
interesting bottles that are affordable and exciting to drink.”
As well as keeping shelves stocked with primo liquor, the team also conducts spirit
education classes, ranging from introductory courses to tastings for experienced drinkers.
