  • Remy Martin Louis XIII Cognac – R69 999
  • Bunnahabhain 25-year-old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky – R5 999
  • A limited-edition 23-year-old Springbank Single Malt Scotch Whisky – R3 799
  • Teeling Single Malt Irish Whiskey – R599

The online outlet will also stock a range of sought-after premium wines, such as The Jem Waterford Estate, Closilo Kopbeen Pinotage, and De Wetshof Bateleur Chardonnay, Business Insider reports further.

The Shoprite Group said that the online store is an extension of its standalone liquor store, LiquorShop, and comes after its brick-and-mortar store was voted South Africa’s favourite liquor store.

“As with its physical stores, LiquorShop Online will focus on offering unbeatable value across a massive range. Products will retail at supermarket prices, and customers can link their Xtra Savings cards to benefit from deals online,” the retailer said on Monday, 15 November.
