Milroy's legendary whisky emporium has hidden depths, so follow resident Jack Russell Chester through a fake bookcase and scamper into the building's bowels. Following a facelift in 2015, this one-time storeroom now comes on like a Hebridean smuggler's bothy complete with rustic brown hues and candlelight. With 18 tempting tipples to get through, you might well end up 'Scotch mist' (in the Cockney sense). Typically wintry cockle-warmers could include Memories of a Geisha (infused with gunpowder tea) and East India Trading Company – a Kümmel-washed Negroni made with Indian single malt, Amrut Fusion. Whisky-phobes might prefer a lavender-infused gin and cassis Prosecco sour or a Bloody Bandito (a tangy, beetroot juice-laced Tommy's Margarita, served over anisette and limoncello ice). If you aren't keen on cocktails at all, then Sangiovese, Soave and Swiss lager are also available.
What's this at the end of the room? Since when do bookshelves have door handles?
