About Us

McMillans of Malton is an independent wine and spirit merchant in Malton, North Yorkshire, the “Food Capital of Yorkshire”. Specialising in Whisky and Gin but also stock wine, beer, cider and various other spirits. We're a father son duo, Jim & James, that was essentially born over several pints and a pipe dream. We started in 2016 with little to no experience in the drink industry. Dad (Jim) was working night shifts in a steel factory, having been made redundant as a teacher and I (James) as a Land/Property Agent. After far too many beers in the local one night, we thought it would be a good idea to open a whisky shop in a property I was letting at the time, and the rest as they say is history . 

In November 2019 we moved premises to allow us to expand, the pandemic has put the brakes on that somewhat but, we are now in a beautiful and quirky listed building that has so much more to offer. We love what we do and if your able to get to the shop we promise a warm, kilted (dads full scot, I’m half) welcome with samples and terrible banter.
