Whitmore & White opened its first set of doors in Heswall on the Wirral in April 2014 followed by its second in Frodsham, Cheshire, in February 2015. We were crowned Cheshire's Best Deli in 2016 and again in 2017, and have been highly commended in the Cheshire Life Food & Drink Awards as well as receiving recognition from Wirral Tourism and Wirral Chamber of Commerce.
We're fervent foodies and life-long lovers of wine. Between us we have a huge wealth of knowledge on various subjects mostly, but not entirely confined to, food, wine and spirits! We hope our website and our stores reflect this and we hope you'll find everything you were looking for and a few things you weren't!
AWARD-WINNING DELICATESSEN & CAFÉ DU VIN
Our award-winning delis are the ultimate home of foodie delight and wonder! We explore the world of food and drink and bring it all together in a no-nonsense fashion so that you can do the same. We find you things that are different and import it ourselves, from food and drink you simply won't find anywhere else in the UK to a whole host of locally produced goodies that we find by visiting artisan markets and by customer recommendation. We try everything before it goes into our shops - it's a chore, but someone has to do it!
You will also find locally roasted coffee, cured meats, a long list of British and European cheeses, oils and vinegars, all sorts of fascinating dry goods and groceries and an epic confectionery selection. So what are you waiting for? A taste-bud adventure awaits!
Whether as a present, a treat for yourself, or a corporate gift, our hampers are delightful defined! You can create your own hamper, or pick one of our themed hampers. The collections have been carefully put together to showcase the Food Hall at its very best, with hampers made up of wonderful fine food and drink from around the world and from right here at home.
You can send our hampers as gifts anywhere in the UK.
We have a terrific selection of gifts perfect for any occasion. As well as Gift Cards, there's a lovely selection of food, wine, spirits, gifts and hampers as well as wine gifts, whisky gifts and all manner of Champagne and other delicious things for you to send to a lucky someone anywhere in the UK.
WINE & SPIRIT SELECTION
Our wine and spirit selection is one of the most interesting and eclectic you will find anywhere in the region. We've chosen to focus on smaller wine makers from various countries and we stock a number of wines that are not widely available in the UK. Have a look at our pages about our favourite New Zealand winery Riverby Estate, whose Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has a huge following in our stores! We have thoroughly taste tested every wine in store to bring you different and interesting wines from old and new worlds to open up new worlds for you to explore!
Our spirit selection will leave you thoroughly spoilt for choice, with over eighty different types of whisky and an enviable range of gin - as well as an interesting collection of obscure spirits. We also stock a number of North West artisan gins and produce our very own Whitmore Gin! We are also hugely proud of our association with Williams Chase of Hereford and you will find their full range in store.
If you're not sure where to start with our range, why not try one of our Mixed Cases.
We have a busy Events Calendar at both shops, from our own regular wine tastings and food sampling evenings, to special wine tastings hosted by wine-makers who come from all over the world to see us! Our tastings are quite informal and friendly and are our opportunity to put our wines and our food on show. We also offer private wine tastings in both shops. Whether you're a local club or society, or just a group of friends wanting to sample some amazing food and drink, get in touch to arrange your evening with us.
