Riddles Emporium opened in Spring 2017, after the overwhelming success of Riddles Bar in Altrincham showed the demand for fine cocktails, prepared with the best ingredients. It soon became apparent that there was a need for a venue that offered for purchase a wide range of high-quality and unusual spirits – that can’t be found in every day stores – as well as hosting world-class tasting events.
Riddles Emporium also provides a range of cocktail equipment, bitters, syrups, and cocktail instruction books – to feed the passions of those who want to create fine drinks at home.
In October 2017, it was announced that Riddles Emporium had been nominated for the IWSC Independent Spirit Retailer of the Year 2017, reaching the top 3 in the UK after less than a year of opening. Comments include;
“Fun, friendly modern and engaging…” Rebecca Coates
“Good selection of products – good notes for the consumer, the passion is evident” Chris Horridge
