Berry Bros & Rudd opens new London shop

Berry Bros & Rudd has opened a new flagship London shop in St James’s complete with Enomatic sampling machines and shelving for more than 1,000 wines and spirits.

63 Pall Mall occupies a former office space, which was already owned by Berry Bros & Rudd

The store can be found within existing Berry Bros office space at number 63 Pall Mall, which is almost directly opposite the private members’ wine club, 67 Pall Mall.

Speaking to the drinks business ahead of the official opening of the new shop today, Dan Jago, CEO of Berry’s Bros & Rudd, said that the site at 63 Pall Mall would be bigger and better than the existing London store for the wines and spirits merchant, which can be found at No.3 St James’s Street.

“No.3 is going back to what it was – which is a place for welcoming customers – and our new shop will be larger and much more finely attuned to modern retail,” said Jago.

Acknowledging its excellent position across the street from 67 Pall Mall, which has become a mecca for wine lovers, he said that the new shop’s location “was entirely by accident”, adding that Berry Bros & Rudd already owned the building at 63 Pall Mall, which had previously been rented for use as office space.

Jago recorded that Berry Bros had bought the property using the proceeds from the sale of its Scotch brand Cutty Sark, which was bought by The Edrington Group in 2010. This ensures that the merchant “doesn’t pay rent” on the site, said Jago.

He also told db that the idea to open a new Berry’s shop was his own, but said that the design of the new retail space has been managed by Geordie Willis – who is an eighth generation Berry family member.

Jago described the shop as “a wonderful space that completely reflects the Berry’s brand”, which, he added, “Is one foot in the past and one foot in the future”.
