In 2021 we purchased a new electric van to meet our London deliveries in speedy and zero emissions way. A social media competition saw our customers name the van, the winning name was: Filboot & Drivit
Our Marylebone store was renovated top to bottom, front to back. We can now welcome 35 people inside for tasting and drinks service. With a huge wine selection to choose from it might be hard to leave.
In November 2018 O’Briens Wine purchased the business to begin a new chapter in its history. Founded as a family business in the 1940s and specialising in wine, beer and spirits since 1973 growing throughout the Republic of Ireland.
Philglas & Swiggot is now managed by Marcus O'Brien with Justin Knock MW and Lynne Coyle MW (Wine Director for O'Briens in Ireland) overseeing the wine range. Justin and Lynne are recently pictured here in a vineyard in Paso Robles in California.
Philglas & Swiggot was founded in 1991 on Northcote Road in Battersea by Mike and Karen Rogers. Over the next 23 years it expanded to add stores in Marylebone and Richmond, and became one of London's most loved independent wine merchants gaining a reputation for stocking an exceptional range from around the world with notable strength in Italy, South Africa, Australia and California.
