Shops for Scotch Malt Whisky?

Hi, I a member of the SMWS, and sometimes buy from Cadenhead's in Baden, Eddie's in Horgen & Anne McKenzie's in Einseideln. Apart from online shops, does anyone have any other recommendations in the Zurich/Schwyz area?

Thanks, Greg.

Re: Shops for Scotch Malt Whisky?

Try Clanach Dubh No13, I've bought some nice Malts there, and they have a good selection of the usual names, and some not so well known. They don't have a website, but are on Zugerstrasse in Unterägeri. The shop has a nice feel to it and the staff are very helpful.

That one sounds good, I have not heard of it, thanks...

PS: Globus & Drinks of the World do not have the range I am looking for, at that level Denner has much better offers on standard Malt Whiskys, some cheaper than in Scotland.

Oh yes, I second this tip, been there a few times with the Pirate.....and got some mid price golden yummyness.....tho' I think they are a bit on the expensive side.... but service of the staff is really great. The shop is very close to the main train station/harbour and really easy to find.

Another recommendation is this mate of mine, Martin Monnier, in Studen ( close to Biel)
