Country of Business

Nickolls & Perks, established in 1797, proudly holds the distinction of being the UK's oldest provincial wine and spirits merchant. Rooted in a history of independence, the company remains a close-knit organization located in the heart of the West Midlands, still under the stewardship of a dedicated third-generation family ownership.

Their specialization spans Cru Classé Bordeaux, Champagne, Whisky, Vintage Port, with a growing emphasis on fine Burgundy and top cru Rhône wines. They host frequent tasting events within their 16th-century sandstone cellars and are the driving force behind the Midlands Whisky Festival. Located in the iconic 17th-century building at 37 Lower High Street, Stourbridge, Nickolls & Perks is a renowned wine and spirits merchant offering a wide array of top-quality products from around the world, continuing a tradition of excellence established by William Gardener's acquisition of the business in 1945.

2023 marked a landmark in the company's history when they moved into independently bottling spirits under their own labels.
