The Whisky Tasting Club

New club offers whisky galore

British whisky fans are being offered the chance to try a selection of new and exciting whiskies thanks to a new on-line business.

The Whisky Tasting Club, which is launched today, offers malt drinkers packs of five different whiskies in 5cl bottles. The whiskies are accompanied by information and comprehensive tasting notes from a number of sources including from whisky writer Dominic Roskrow and the three other club directors.

The club grew out of Roskrow’s regular Norwich tasting evenings and he has worked with the other directors to choose exciting and attractive malts. People buying whisky packs are encouraged to score the whiskies on-line and discuss them on the club’s forum.

The club’s founders plan to release a new whisky selection each month as well as special one-off packs. People who choose to buy a set of five whiskies do not have to sign up to club membership or commit to buying whisky more than once should they not want to do so.

“But obviously we hope people will want to come back again and again,” says club founder Tony Bagnall. “and to make it worth their while we will offer incentives to people who sign up for regular tastings, including a copy of Dominic’s new book The World’s Best Whiskies, worth £30, and membership of The Whisky Shop’s Glenkeir Club, worth £25.”

Each pack of five whiskies cost £25 plus £2.95 post and packaging. The first three topics are The Regions of Scotland, Whiskies of the World, and Get Wood.

A special vertical Laphroaig containing six malts including the 2010 Cask Strength 10 Year Old, the 18 Year Old, Quarter Cask and Triple Wood is being offered at £30.

Plans for the club include broadcasting Dominic Roskrow’s tasting evenings live on the web, inviting distillers and whisky makers on to forum sessions, offering selected regular purchasers special complimentary samples including new releases and even ‘works in progress’ and working with individual distilleries to offer unusual and special vertical selections.
