If you thought rosé pouches were the pinnacle of drinking fun, you were wrong – because now, you can sip whiskey from a Capri Sun-inspired pouch. The folks who brought us Black Rock, a London whiskey bar, are now offering a scotch of the month club called “Whisky Me.”
The club is unique since the sample comes in a soft pouch, straight to your mailbox – if you live in the United Kingdom. Hopefully, they’ll be expanding their services to the US soon, because with the holidays coming, I could definitely use an extra drink. Each pouch holds five centiliters of single malt Scotch, along with a comprehensive description of the booze. The whiskey has also been chosen by a tasting panel “to best represent the glorious flavors and diversity of single malt whiskey.”
The whole process is summed up efficiently on the website: each month, they “hand select” the best whiskies in the world, and pop them in a pouch and give them to the postman. Since the pouch can be left in your mailbox, no signature is required, so your after-work-drink will literally be waiting for you when you get home.
According to VinePair, the whiskey will come from a variety of distilleries including Aberfeldy, Macallan and Royal Lochnagar. It’s a great opportunity to try some top-notch drams for around $10 a month.
A super cool added feature includes HD drone video footage and distillery information, so you can learn more about where the month’s booze came from. Another bonus – they’re working on growing their subscriber list, so if you sign up now, you’ll get a special treat when they hit their goals. When they reach 1,000 subscribers, members will get a bonus pouch of single-cask whiskey from Strathearn, one of Scotland’s newest and smallest distilleries – so this stuff is scarce and in demand.
Sign up today, and let Whisky Me “take you on an amazing tour through the world of malt whisky; from smoky ports, to fruity glens, green lowlands, and much more.” I’m sold.
