The firm already operates outlets in Soho and the City, selling a range of wines, spirits and craft beers. The new shop will have a number of specially-selected drinks unique to its location.

In addition, it carries most of the firm's 200-strong Champagne and sparkling wine list, including a Louis Roederer Cristal Methuselah 2006, priced at £8,732.35.

Aside from wines, Amathus has around 1,800 spirits on its list, 400 of which it import exclusively, including Bourbon from Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery, Casa Centinela Tequila, and Château de Laubade Armagnac.

The group is also adding Ibérico Mezcal to its range.

The company plans to hold wine and spirit tasting sessions at the new store, with a host of experts on hand to talk guests through a regular series of guided masterclasses.

Amathus Knightsbridge, 203 Brompton Road, is open seven days a week and offers a click-and-collect service as well as free local delivery.

Amathus, which was set up in 1978, also runs an in-store members society, called the Wines of Wonder "WOW" Society, although this is not yet running in its new Knightsbridge store. For now anyone can come and use the Enomatic machines for sampling wine, although rather than 8 rotating wines, 16 wines and at least 8 spirits are available to taste at all times.
