Our Tasting Celebration
We are hosting an invitation only Tasting Celebration at the original Battersea store on the 4th November 2021. We will welcome over 100 of our best customers across several entry slots throughout the day. Wine of course will be at the front and centre of the celebrations so expect an exceptional line up of fine wines presented by our favourite suppliers.
Philglas and Swiggot was founded in 1991 at 21 Northcote Road, Battersea and we have been part of the local community ever since. Over the last 30 years the business has grown a loyal and devoted customer base and created a unique range of premium wines, spirits & beers from around the world.
Our roots are in SW11 and as our customer base and business grew, we expanded to add two further stores and in 2019 added a new Enoteca to our West End store in New Quebec Street, Marylebone to cement our position as one of London's most loved independent wine merchants.
All our stores are open every day of the week and staffed by a devoted and highly knowledgeable team. Our rapidly growing online, trade, and fine wine divisions has further extended our national reach over the past two years.
Recently awarded Decanter’s 'BEST LONDON MULTI-STORE' 2021 Runner-up, the judges said ‘Philglas continues to buy well and engage its customers with a unique personality.’
We couldn’t agree more, and we very much look forward to celebrating with you and all the Philglas community!
Day 3 began with a few sore heads from the night before, luckily the beds in the Dr Loosen guest house are extremely comfortable and a freshly cooked breakfast went down a treat. Next stop Jean Stodden Winery and Donnhoff.
I was fortunate enough to be invited on the recent Masters of Riesling trip by renowned German importer 'ABS Agencies' this past June. This trip involved visiting some of the most prestigious German wineries across the country over four wine filled days, sounds fun right.
The 2021 Bordeaux vintage is being hailed as the 'Miracle Vintage' by some winemakers: between late frosts and a cool, damp summer, it was a difficult vintage, and grape yields were significantly reduced compared to recent years.
