Craft Whisky Club – Review


When it comes to companies that source craft booze for you, whisky is a pretty untapped market.

There’s loads of craft beer subscription companies. Looking for the Postman has reviewed loads of them. Last month, I reviewed My Vitibox who source lesser known quality wine for you. But what about whisky lovers?

The Craft Whisky Club is what you’re looking for. Their website not only gives a bit of background to what they do, but also describes the best job in the UK. “David and Bill our resident whisky enthusiasts, are savouring and tasting their way around Scotland speaking to well established and new whisky distilleries. Their desire is to find the very best craft, artisan and small whisky runs to deliver them to your door.” Jealous!

Craft Whisky ClubThe subscription model is as follows. You pay either £26.95 or £49.95 per month and once every two months they send you a shipment direct to your door. The first option gets you one full size bottle of Craft Whisky, while the second gets you two bottles.Craft Whisky ClubSo that’s the subscription in principle but what is the service like in reality?

The large, black box that the goodies are delivered in oozes class. There’s a large, typewritten description of the contents which include the whisky tasting notes. It looks special, and the box isn’t even open yet! So, let’s get to it.

Craft Whisky Club

Any grain fan will tell you about the buzz you get when you open a new, unknown bottle of whisky. This lifts that to another level by also including other Scottish products which have been chosen to match the Craft Whisky included.

For this box, the whisky is R&B Distillers BORDERS, which is a fantastic First Release Limited Edition single grain whisky, made from 50% malted barley and 50% wheat. Finished in Oloroso sherry casks. You can read more about BORDERS and R&B Distillers in general here.

The Borders Single Grain is rather special. The ‘Single in ‘Single Grain’ means that all the whisky within is made by the one distillery. Finishing the whisky in sherry casks adds a sweet, rounded flavour to the whisky. The whole effect is marvellous. It reminds me slightly of The Glenrothes. It’s every bit as wonderful. There are aroma of nuts, sweetness, cream, and a tiny amount of pepper in the mouth.

I would say I’ve found another classic whisky, another new favourite in the Borders Single Grain. And that’s the beauty of the Craft Whisky Club. You get to discover a small run whisky that might not otherwise cross your path.

The accompanying delights are a rich dark chocolate bar with ginger and Perthshire oatcakes, both premium quality.

Craft Whisky Club Craft Whisky Club

Good quality whisky is never going to be cheap. By spreading the cost of each box over two months, the Craft Whisky Club make things a little more affordable. They appear to be very knowledgeable through their choices of whisky and their interesting blog. I’d say that if you’re looking for a Christmas gift for a whisky lover, you may well have just found the perfect present for them!
