Cockburn’s of Leith was founded in Edinburgh in 1796 by Robert Cockburn, brother of the famous literary figure, Lord Cockburn. Spanning four centuries, it has counted among its customers, Sir Walter Scott, Charles Dickens, Countess of Newburgh, King George IV and Sir Robert Peel. In 2022 the company started a new chapter of Scotland’s oldest wine and spirits merchant. Following a rebrand, Cockburn’s opened its doors to the public in Edinburgh’s New Town, bringing one of our city’s most treasured names in drinking and hospitality full circle – home.
