Coole Swan tastings

Every Sunday afternoon we offer complimentary tastings of Coole Swan. Coole Swan is a tasty cream liqueur made with Irish whiskey, cocoa, vanilla and double cream.

The gentle melt in the mouth feeling of the cold, fresh, cream and smooth silky white chocolate reveals the warmth of the mellow, rounded whiskey. 

Every Sunday, 12.30pm - 4pm
Gift Food, First floor

Supporting our communities

Our aims

We're proud of the close links we forge between our Partners and local schools, charities and organisations. And wherever we do business, at home or abroad, we work with communities to make a difference. That's why:

  • Our Community Matters programme in our shops continues to support local charities and community groups.
  • We aim to give at least 1% of pre-tax profits to community initiatives.
  • We will continue to seek out projects that support the John Lewis Foundation at home and abroad.

If you'd like to nominate a good cause for Community Matters please complete the nomination form and take it to the Customer Services department.



The charities we're supporting from May 2015 – July 2015 are:

  • Resources for Autism, Golders Green - our donation will provide services for people diagnosed with autism, to help them integrate into the wider community.
  • Strength in Horses Equine Therapy, Edgware - our donation will provide equine assisted therapy sessions for children and young people who have experienced difficulties, which has a proven record of success.
  • RNIB Sunshine House Primary School, Northwood - require funding for specialist physiotherapy and sensory equipment to stimulate their blind or disabled students.

This is how February '15 - April '15 Community Matters' charities benefited from being part of the scheme:

  • Winnicott Foundation - received £960
  • Colindale Foodbank - received £840
  • Sunflower Cancer Support - received £1200
