One of the more affordable and convenient ways to start or grow your whisky collection is via a subscription service, where you’ll be transported to a realm of flavour discovery and cask-aged wonders with each delivery.
A subscription typically entails a monthly or quarterly delivery of different whiskies from around the world, and sometimes samples or tasting sets to help you explore new flavours and learn more about the different types of whisky.
So, if you’d like to explore this whisky subscription phenomenon yourself, where every bottle becomes a vessel for extraordinary experiences, here are some of the best in Australia.
The best whisky subscriptions in Australia
Whether you’re a collector, a connoisseur or just looking forward to that casual Friday night dram, The Whisky Club is a sure way to unlock a world of whisky fun. You can choose between a one or two-bottle membership, with no joining fee, no minimum order, and you can cancel anytime.
First released in 2016, this is the sixth iteration of White Possum's trademark whisky-tasting flight. Featuring 12 sampler bottles filled with local whiskies, each one is presented in a 30ml matte-black glass bottle and labelled with the distillery, whisky name and where it was distilled so you can learn while you drink.
Taste different whisky in a unique and affordable way through the Whisky Flavour Box, containing four original branded miniatures of whisky, glencairn glass, cork cup base, marble ice cubes and snacks to bring out the flavours.
Sign up for an authentic distillery tour experience without leaving your home. With a Flaviar membership you can sample and train your palate with themed tasting sets, expand your taste, and find your new favourite.
