The Whisky Drop is a whisky subscription that delivers a different hand picked bottle of the good stuff once a month, right into your whisky-loving hands. The monthly cost of the whisky will land between $130 and $180 excluding shipping, and you have the option to skip a month or cancel your subscription at any time. We’ll give at least 4 days’ notice of the upcoming selection (via email) before you’re charged on the 1st of the month, provided you haven’t chosen to sit that one out. Subscriptions will ship out from the 4th and pick-ups will be available from the 5th.
We aren’t your typical shop, which means we aren’t in the business of slinging you typical booze. We’re all about finding you the interesting things, the great things and, universe permitting, the exclusive things. Expect to see great products from all over the world as well as our back yard (not literally, but you know, like, pretty local).
WHISKY DROP #1 — AUGUST 2017
Kilchoman 100% Islay 7th Edition 50% ABV 700ml
Established in 2005, Kilchoman is the first new Islay distillery to open its doors in 124 years. In addition, they are the only Islay distillery to grow and malt their own barley, which makes them the only ones to produce barley to bottle whisky on the island. That said, this is an expression of just that principal. 100% Islay is all about showcasing the essence of Kilchoman spirit, exhibiting gentler peat than their other range and using fresh and refill bourbon barrels (Buffalo Trace, to be specific) to really encourage the integrity of the spirit to shine. Distilled in 2010 and bottled in 2017, the 7th Edition is the latest and oldest release of 100% Islay. The 7th Edition of 100% Islay is yet to be released in Australia—which means that you, the subscribers, get first crack at this whisky. We’ve secured half of Australia’s allocation exclusively for The Whisky Drop, so if you were looking for any further encouragement, this would be it.
