Over a decade ago, Phil Innes took over a unit in Birmingham city centre, convinced that there was an audience ready for interesting wines, individually selected for each customer. After stints in Oddbins and Wine Rack, Phil was determined to put taste and quality at the centre of his selection, rather than outdated notions about labels, regions or sales targets.
He installed top-end tasting machines and introduced regular guided experiences to enable Loki’s new followers to try the lesser-known wines about which he was so convinced. He demystified wine, with prices as varied as his selections. And Loki’s Great Western Arcade HQ quickly became the go-to spot for getting recommendations for dinner party pairings, lingering over a bottle of something old or new, and just having a really good time.
Fast forward ten years, a major expansion plus two additional sites, some of the best-attended online tastings ever, and more awards than a trophy room could house. You could say a lot has changed. But at its core, quality, interest and a love of wine backed up by constant learning, is what underlies every drop of wine enjoyed under Loki’s name.
