The best off licence in Wales?

Discount Supermarket, 97-99 Whitchurch Road, Cardiff, CF14 3JP

Situated on the corner of Whitchurch Road and Heathfield Road in Cardiff, not too far away from the chaos of Gabalfa Junction, is the best range of bottled beer in Cardiff, if not South Wales. A rather unassuming shopfront gives rise to an interior well-stocked with bottled beers and ciders from across the world. From Sam Smith's beers priced at a very reasonable £2.25 a bottle to bottles of Cantillon Gueze priced at over £5, this shop has something for every beer lover.

Bottles of Dragon Stout from Desnoes & Geddes in Jamaica, makers of Red Stripe, are stocked along with Schlenkerla Rauchbier from Bamberg. Belgium, American and even a South African real ale in a bottle can all be found here. British brewers are not neglected either with Black Sheep, St Peter's, Meantime, Marble, Robinson's and St Austell all here. Local beers from Welsh breweries are also stocked with Vale of Glamorgan, Celt Experience, Brains and Pen-Lon Cottage together with Gwynt y Ddraig cider.  

The shop has products for everyone, even the Jockanese are catered for with Glaswegian favourite Buckfast Tonic Wine available, perfect for washing down a deep-fried Mars bar before their methadone.

Cheers bro,

Bargain Booze let us down, also lost a wing mirror but thanks to your review we travelled the breadth of Cardiff to find the holy grail AKA Buckfast.

Quick shout out to the Benedictine Monks of Devon.

Kind regards,
