Join Your Whiskey Club at Pour More Today! Who's the best Whiskey Club? Whiskey is back! And in a big way. Over the last decade sales numbers and whiskey options have soared. Whether increased sales have led to more distillers, or the craft distilling craze has led to increased overall sales, is a question best left for the experts.

The effect on the consumer is this: if you're into blended or single malt, large well-known distilleries or up-and-coming craft distillers, Irish Whiskey (spelled with the 'e') or American Bourbon or Scotch Whisky (spelled without the 'e'), the options are seemingly endless. Whether you're a connoisseur of fine whiskey or a recent convert, it's a really good time to be into whiskey. And a great time to join a Whiskey Club!

For Whiskey Lovers

FOR WHISKEY LOVERS

Visit Site

Cost:

$89.95/month up to $229.95/quarter

For Whisky Lovers delivers your choice whisky – bourbon or scotch. You can join the American Whiskey Club or the World Malts Club. Both clubs also offer your choice of delivery frequency – monthly or quarterly.

  • American Whiskey Club – This club ships amazing American whiskeys from the leading small artisanal craft distilleries in the U.S. and is designed for the bourbon whiskey enthusiast.
    • AWC Prospector $89.95/month – Membership includes a single 750mL bottle of American bourbon with free shipping.
    • AWC Scout $209.95/quarter (almost $20 savings per bottle) – Membership includes three 750mL bottles of American whiskey. Every 3 months you get 2 bottles of exceptional American bourbon plus a ‘wild card' bottle of rye, corn, malt or other grain/ blended whisky, all with free shipping.
  • World Malts Club – When most people hear malt whisky they think of scotch. And for good reason. For the majority of malt whisky's history, Scotland produced the best products. While scotch is still on the top shelf for many people other regions around the world are producing some amazing malt whisky as well. This club is designed to give people a taste of the best malts from around the globe with a focus on scotch whiskeys. Like the American Whiskey Club, the malts club sources from smaller artisanal distilleries.
    • MWC Prospector $99.95/month – Membership includes one 750mL bottle of single malt, vatted malt, or blended malt whisky with free shipping.
    • MWC Scout $229.95/quarter (over $23.00 savings per bottle) – Membership includes three 750mL bottles of malt whisky. Every 3 months you get 2 bottles of world class single or vatted malt whiskeys plus a bottle of blended malt whisky, all with free shipping.

Membership Overview:

  • Selection: Whiskeys from around the world
  • Duration: Monthly or quarterly, cancel renewals at any time
  • Frequency: Monthly or quarterly
  • Shipping: Free

The final club option available from For Whisky Lovers is The Whiskey Explorers club – their tasting club. It is for members who want to taste the widest variety of whiskeys from around the world while broadening their whiskey knowledge base at the same time. The Whiskey Explorers club is available in multiple forms and each comes with a complimentary engraved Glencairn nosing and tasting glass, free shipping, and instructions on how to use a tasting game to uncover each whiskey's identity. Here are the different options:

  • Scout Membership $79.95/month – a one-time sample flight of four 50mL bottles
  • Voyager Membership $189.95/year ($47.49/flight – a savings of over $30.00/flight) – a non-renewing membership providing 4 quarterly sample flight shipments of four 50mL bottles of whiskey each (16 total whiskeys!)
  • Voyager Subscription $189.95/year ($47.49/flight – a savings of over $30.00/flight) plus a $25.00 gift certificate to For Whisky Lovers online store – an auto-renewing subscription which provides 4 quarterly sample flight shipments of four 50mL bottles of whiskey each (16 total whiskeys!)

Along with their American Whiskey Club and World Malts Club, For Whisky Lovers offers a tasting club and free shipping for all clubs (two nice features most other clubs do not have). For that reason they rate highly in our review. The only thing we wish they included was a high-end tier to their whisky clubs.

Caskers

CASKERS

Visit Site

Cost:

American Whiskey Club - $146.99/quarter

World Whiskey Club - $166.99/quarter

Caskers offers two whiskey club options – 2 bottles, every three months. With only two clubs, it's an easy selection process for whiskey club shoppers. Their auto-renewing membership provides a quarterly delivery of 2 full size bottles of whiskey. Custom tasting cards and notes are included in each shipment.

With a quarterly cost of $146.99 or $166.99 based on club selection, they are the least expensive club we reviewed. The savings from Caskers continues with a feature few clubs have, free shipping. You'll be hard pressed to find another club to restock your bar with good whiskey at a cheaper price.

We were unable to find any information on Casker's site stating what kind of distillers they source from, but one picture on the site showed a possible shipment of three whiskeys from smaller, craft-style distillers which is comparable to other clubs we've reviewed. With only two club options, and the lowest price around, it's difficult to imagine Caskers offering any high-end bottles, at least not regularly. That said, Casker's states that the quarterly shipment includes quality whiskeys form artisanal craft distillers.

Membership Overview:

  • Selection: Two 750mL bottles from around the country or around the world, depending on club selection
  • Duration: 3 months, cancel anytime
  • Frequency: Quarterly
  • Shipping: Free

We feel Caskers is a good club for the new-to-whiskey club seeker or whiskey lover on a budget. Aside from the lowest price in our review, Caskers Whiskey Club doesn't quite compete with the higher rated clubs.

Continued from above

While many of these whiskey clubs focus on local or craft distillers that may not have wide name recognition outside their region, some have higher end options with brands all whiskey lovers will know. We think a whiskey club subscription is the best and most cost effective way to indulge your taste buds with new bottles and brands of whiskey. And the best clubs give you the ability to adjust your subscription to meet your specific tastes and needs.

There are many whiskey clubs to choose from and they vary almost as much as whiskey itself. With so many club options you should consider the features and benefits when deciding which club is the best fit for you. Here are a few important features of whiskey club subscriptions that you should consider:

  • Price. What is the subscription cost? Will you need to pay for shipping or is it free? Does the club offer any discounts for longer memberships?
  • Frequency. How often will a shipment be made? Do you have choices or is there only one option?
  • Flexibility. Are there options that cater to you, such as different memberships for different whiskey styles? Can you cancel anytime?
  • Selection. What comes in each shipment? Is it the same style of whiskey each time or are you able to try other styles? Where are the whiskeys sourced from?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Whiskey Clubs available today. We hope these reviews help you find the right Whiskey Club membership to meet your needs!
