Why a whisky subscription makes the perfect gift

Looking for the perfect gift this Christmas? Struggling for inspiration?

We’ve got a great idea – one of our whisky tasting subscriptions.

Not sure it’s the ‘something special’ you’ve been searching for?

It is! But if you need a little more convincing, keep reading, as the team at Whisky Tasting Company unwrap exactly what it is people love about them.


Reason 1 – the gift that keeps on giving

After the excitement of present opening subsides, a whisky subscription will continue to delight.

A standard subscription includes 3 sets, with a new selection delivered every 3 months. So, if you gift the first set for Christmas, the lucky recipient can look forward to receiving more exciting deliveries through the post in the new year.

What better way to beat the January blues than with anticipation of more gifts on the way?


Reason 2 – more than just a bottle of whisky

3 for 2, special offers, black Friday deals – we all want more for our money at Christmas time, and a whisky subscription is the perfect way to get it!

Multiple gifts rolled into one, not only will you be gifting a delicious treat, but it’s also a fun activity, educational, a keepsake, and a new hobby to start the new year.

Each box set includes five 30ml bottles of whisky accompanied by their own tasting cards – these provide information and facts about the whiskies and offer insight into the different varieties, flavours, and distilleries.  

Also included is a unique tasting mat, providing the ideal place to set out whiskies and record notes.

If that’s not value for money, we don’t know what is!


Reason 3 – choose who plays Santa

Who is going to deliver your present – you or the postman?

We can send whisky subscription sets directly to the lucky recipient, or if you’d prefer to have something to wrap up and gift in person, that’s no problem either.

Thanks to our flexible whisky delivery options, we can send the first set to you, so you have something to wrap and share on Christmas day – allowing you to see the joy on their face when they open the gift.

Subsequent sets can then be delivered straight to their door.


Reason 4 – stick to your budget

No one wants to feel like Scrooge at Christmas, yet it’s important to shop within your budget.

Luckily, we offer plenty of choice with our whisky subscriptions, so you can control how much you spend.

Prices range from under £90 through to £198, giving you the flexibility of a great gift at a price that won’t leave you feeling the pinch.

Reason 5 – add a personal touch

Make your gift really stand out with a personalised message.

Beautifully presented in our custom Whisky Tasting Company presentation boxes, you can add a small message (up to four lines) to the first box.

‘Happy Christmas’, ‘Have a wonderful whisky-filled Christmas’, ‘To the best Dad at Christmas time’ – whatever your seasonal greeting, it adds an extra special touch to your present and is sure to delight. 


Reason 6 – it works for everyone

Worried the person you’re thinking of treating might not like whisky?

Don’t be.

Whisky is such a diverse drink that we’d argue there’s a malt out there for everyone, and if someone thinks they don’t like the spirit, they just haven’t found the right one yet – which makes our tasting sets perfect.

On the other hand, if you’re buying for a connoisseur, you can try one of our rare and premium whisky subscriptions full of unique and limited edition single-cask and cask-strength whiskies, which they’re unlikely to have sampled before.
