Demijohn was founded in Edinburgh’s Grassmarket in 2004, by Angus and Frances Ferguson who are passionate about good food and drink. Demijohn’s Oxford Store, at 20 Little Clarendon Street near Jericho, opened in Oct 2013.

Inspired by continental cantinas and markets this liquid deli from Scotland sells a unique range of handmade British food and drink, from rare Scotch Whiskies and delicious liqueurs to infused oils and balsamic vinegars. All products are lovingly sourced from small producers, predominantly across the UK, who share Angus and Frances's passion for food and drink.

Demijohn is unique – both its method of selling and the products it sells. Many of the liquids are only available at Demijohn and are as unusual and distinctive as the British culture. Visiting Demijohn is better than a trip to a bar as customers are encouraged to taste the products before their purchase is bottled for them in the shop. Demijohn bottles can then be returned for a refill, saving on the cost of the bottle and helping the environment.

Demijohn Staff are more than sales people – they are passionate about the quality of the liquids and the provenance. With flavours such as Gooseberry Gin, Elderflower Vinegar and Rhubarb Vodka to taste, this is fun shopping for the inquisitive food lover. We urge you to come and try for yourself!
