“Even in the centuries-old distilleries of Scotland and Ireland alone there are mind-blowingly superior whiskies you never get to hear of here in Australia, let alone have the chance to pour in the comfort of your own home…”
Mark Twain, James Joyce and AC/DC, just a few of the world’s greatest wordsmiths who loudly profess a love for a dram. And who could blame them? Whisky is the world’s greatest drink, enjoyed by men and women of good taste on a daily basis. Since the unrivalled rise of single malt whiskies the industry has been unstoppable, the only obstacle being the lack of stock, but this in turn has driven innovation that keeps the industry invigorated.
Scotland remains the preeminent force, but more and more countries are jumping on board and it’s no longer surprising to find some of the world’s best whiskies in places like Tasmania, Taiwan, India and Sweden. Even in the centuries-old distilleries of Scotland and Ireland alone there are mind-blowingly superior whiskies you never get to hear of here in Australia, let alone have the chance to pour in the comfort of your own home.
That’s where The Whisky Club comes in.
Once a month The Club sends exceptional single malt whisky – we’re talking exclusive imports, sometimes the lion’s share of global releases, and seriously good stuff you won’t see at your local – to thousands of members across Australia, along with a full education on each dram.
How the hell do we do it?
Glad you asked. With our market-leading whisky knowledge, industry connections and sheer membership size and buying power, we’re not merely reselling or repackaging the stuff you may as well be ordering direct online or picking up at the nearest bottle-o. Instead, we scour the whisky world to sniff out (pun intended) the top notch stuff we know our members will love, and deliver it to you complete with a thorough whisky education. Other times, given our high reputation, some of the world’s best whisky brands will also approach us to exclusively launch premium new releases here in Australia, so you get to enjoy it first, and at a highly competitive price.
The Club is for whisky lovers at all stages of their whisky journey. Whether you’re curious to learn more about whisky generally or are a seasoned traveller looking to venture into real whisky territory, beyond the reach of the multinationals’ marketing dollars and mainstream liquor store shelves, then this is for you.
Aside from their character, rarity and exclusivity, each and every whisky is expertly selected first and foremost on the essential basis that it must taste absolutely delicious. At the same time, prices are kept affordable, generally ranging between $95 to $125 plus postage, using the Club membership’s buying power to secure great value for money and we operate an Opt-Out system, so you only pay for what you drink and can stay for as few or as many bottles as you like. The Whisky Club’s Clubhouses include some of the top bars across Australia’s capital cities, where members receive 20% off whisky, and the Club hosts small group member field trips and events to complete the full whisky experience.
The Whisky Club is Australia’s most successful and largest club of its kind, and for good reason. Membership numbers for the current club format will be capped at 5000, after which point we’ll operate a second tier in order to strike the perfect balance between our industry buying power in sourcing some of the most exciting new global releases as well as maintaining access to smaller bespoke bottlings.
