Demijohn opened its door for the first time in July 2004 in the Grassmarket. Unique to Scotland, but popular on the continent, customers are encouraged to taste each product before they buy.
On entering the deli customers are met with shelf upon shelf of glass Demijohns; large glass bottles traditionally used for storing wines and spirits, from which the deli takes its name. The rows of demijohns contain a diverse range of liqueurs, olive oils and vinegars. Having tasted and selected their purchases customers then choose from a wide range of Italian glass bottles into which the oil, vinegar or liqueur is to be placed and gift wrapped; it can then be refilled as required.
The majority of the liqueurs are made by small scale producers using locally sourced ingredients from within Scotland, such as Blackwood’s 60% abv Nordic Dry Gin - the world’s first and strongest vintage gin! Several of the liqueurs make the most of delicious home-grown Scottish ingredients such as Raspberries, Sloes, and Brambles, and, of course, Whisky, which customers are of course encouraged to try before they buy!
