Colmado Quilez – Barcelona

Once upon a time, old-school grocery stores ( colmados) our Delis, were commonplace in Barcelona, but now only a handful remain .
Possibly the best-loved is Colmado Quilez, which dates back to 1908 . Its handsome shopfront displays an incredible variety of local and international foodstuffs, from a range that is said to cover more than 10,000 products. fCatalan cheeses and charcuterie to #00 euro tins of caviar..oh how I was tempted..

The most impressive section, however, is the liquids – from 200 brands of mineral water to one of Europe’s biggest selection of whiskies.

I was desperate to try their Stawberry Gin.

Rambla Catalunya 63, Barcelona.
