About Us

The Carnegie Whisky Cellars opened in June 2016 and quickly established a reputation for great service and product knowledge. 

The Carnegie Whisky Cellars is located inside the Carnegie Courthouse in the centre of Dornoch, across the road from Dornoch Cathedral and only a 5-minute walk from the beautiful beach and world-famous Royal Dornoch Golf Club.

We stock an extensive range of spirits produced throughout Scotland, with over 450 whiskies, 60 gins, liqueurs and other bespoke items – we personally feel that we don’t need to look any further than Scotland for the best selection of spirits in the world.

At the Carnegie Whisky Cellars we are known for stocking a fantastic selection of independent bottlings from Adelphi Distillery Ltd, AD Rattray, Douglas Laing, Gordon & Macphail, Morrison & Mackay and more.
