If you consider yourself a seasoned know-it-all connoisseur when it comes to the world of fine whisky, then you may be looking for new ways to grow your collection. Or, perhaps you’re just starting out and want to taste something you never knew you’d love.

Regardless of your intention, you may be on the hunt for a whisky subscription that delivers samples, tasting sets or even bottles to learn all the differences, nuances and lingo, so that you can become a bona fide spirits expert.

So, whether you’re into your whisky or your whiskey – the former if the spirit is distilled in Ireland or the United States, the latter if distilled in Scotland, Canada or Japan – here are some of the best subscription services delivering top tipples to your door.

The best whisky subscriptions in 2024

The Whisky Club One Bottle membership subscription

Australian whiskey tasting set

$149 per box at Hardtofind

First released in 2016, this is the sixth iteration of White Possum’s trademark whisky-tasting flight, containing 12 samples of Australian whiskies in a matte-black glass sampler bottle, labelled with the distillery, whisky name, and a 14-panel tasting booklet. While not technically a subscription, it’s the ultimate indulgence in Australian craft whisky.

Whisky Flavour subscription

approx. $132 per month at Cratejoy

Taste different whiskies through the Whisky Flavour Box, where you’ll receive miniatures of whisky, a Glencairn glass, a cork cup base, marble ice cubes and snacks – depending on stock availability – to enjoy the flavours. It’s an ideal gift for any whisky lovers – or for yourself.
