Shopping For Alcohol Hits A New Point In Kolkata
Hedonne is a premium shopping destination for all things alcohol. Offering a one-of-a-kind experience for all your liquor needs, it offers a complete solution under one roof. Spread over 7500 sq ft, it is the brainchild of Vikash Musaddi, Mayank Shroff, Anant Shroff, Vikas Murarka and Anurag Murarka, Hedonne, was conceptualized with the idea that purchasing alcohol should be an experience, not a transaction.
For the first time in eastern India, a liquor store provides a walk-in shopping experience. The store will have more than 9000 bottles on the display in the premium range where the customer can pick and choose his preferred brands. The store has an Alcopedia corner where customers can know about the alcohol in detail in terms of where it is made, what it is made of, along with tasting notes.
Heddone features top-notch brands that range from the finest collections of scotch, wines, white spirits and beers from all over the world. The store is an entry point in WB for many brands who feel the niche factor of Heddone is what they needed to enter the market in the city!
The store aims to give a personalized experience to each of its clients.
“Hedonne will start a new trend for liquor shopping, the customer will like to personally go and buy your liquor. Our sommelier will be keen to spoil the customer with the vast variety of choices,” said Vikash Musaddi.
“There was a major dearth of places to purchase good liquor in the city. Thus far, it has always felt like a transactional affair, where the customer goes in blind. When we buy perfume, we get to try a few and then buy what we enjoy. The one that matches our taste and personality. We wanted to bring that element of personalization to the world of alcohol in our city.”, said Mayank Shroff.
“With the increasing number of women buying liquor and the present infrastructure being grossly inadequate to meet this latent demand, Hedonne will be the ideal solution to fill this gap.
We have done an in-depth ground study and have concluded that Kolkata – Our city of joy, which has many firsts to its name like the first metro, the first capital should have this first-of-its-kind liquor store. Let’s get the spirit flowing !!!” said Anant Shroff
With Hedonne we would like to cater to the nuances and interests of alcohol lovers and provide them with a one-stop solution for all their whims and needs, said Anurag Murarka.
Hedonne is a Greek god of pleasure – and the environment in the store is super indulgent. The in-house sommelier team assists with wine tastings regularly. The concept of trying before you buy is new to the city. Every variety of grape produces a different wine. For the customer to have access to these nuances has been a long-standing dream of the owners. A special tasting room has been set up to give customers access to tasting the sample before purchasing it.
We have our own app for home delivery, which will be live by next week, said consultant Pawan Dalmia.
Very often, there is a question as to what should we pair with our wines. What snacks go well with certain liquors? The impeccably trained sommeliers and staff in the store will assist you with food and cheese pairings to ensure you get a complete experience as you savour the wine, spirits and cigars.
Hedonne realizes that buying spirits goes beyond personal consumption. There are accessories, snacks and gift hampers available at the store as well, both local and imported. Their Cuban cigar selection is one of the finest in Kolkata. With a dedicated humidor, they ensure freshness every time! Whether you’re looking for something for yourself or a gift for a dear one, Hedonne is sure to become your one-stop solution for all your spirit needs.
