At Gerry's Wines and Spirits we pride ourselves in stocking the UK's largest selection of spirits and liqueurs. Over the years, our store in the centre of London's vibrant Soho has become famous for being something of an Aladdin's Cave of rare, weird and wonderful examples of the distiller's art.

Allen's twin daughters Kerrie and Sinead, when not attending England's finest universities and after spending all their money in cocktail bars, help dad out at the shop during the holidays. Having both been raised around the trade it's only natural that they'd end up picking up the knowledge from pops and are responsible for sales assistance and customers accounts.
