Our Company History
Mr John Long and his son Peter, who both originated from Leeds, founded the family business on The first of January 1960.
In Stamford Bridge they established a tobacconists and sweet shop. This was followed by acquiring the local CO-OP. On Mr J Long's retirement in 1966 Peter took over the running of the business and in 1970, the CO-OP, which had by then become a Spar shop; was sold.
In 1976 the eldest son Martin joined the family firm and in 1985 added a hardware shop to the company portfolio. Andrew, the youngest son, joined in 1981 developing a cycle shop in 1988.
The year 1992 was a major development year as the business premises leases were up for renewal; a decision to relocate and buy a local freehold was taken.
This was a supermarket with an off licence. We retained the off licence and in 1993 Andrew started to develop the off licence with the main feature of high quality wines and spirits, quickly developing a reputation for quality and choice away from the every day Supermarket range.
The specialist whisky department was opened in 1995 and can now boast a selection of over 600 whiskies in stock at all times.
In 1999 the domain names whiskymerchants.co.uk and whiskys.co.uk were registered and developed in to our first commercial web sites www.whiskys.co.uk and www.whiskymerchants.co.uk .
After a updating of the www.whiskys.co.uk in 2005 the www.whiskymerchants.co.uk domain was developed into whisky information website.
In 2007 we purchased further domain names and have developed this web site as a tasting guide to Scotch Whisky.
