James Fox Cigar & Whiskey Store
You will find imaginative gifts for all ocasions: a large selection of whiskeys and wines of distinction, together with some noted Cuban products.
Tobacconists J.J. Fox was established by London-born James John Fox in 1881. During the Second World War the firm boasted that they were the only shop in northern Europe to maintain a constant supply of Havana cigars – how they accomplished that is still a well kept secret! James Fox’s grandson, Fred, is credited with the idea of opening the world’s first duty-free shop at Shannon Airport in 1947 when he suggested to the government of the day to sell duty-free cigarettes and liquor.
