Whisky Suggest App improvements (& WIN!)

Earlier this year, we asked for your opinion about the Whisky Suggest App. We received heaps of praise, but a lot of useful feedback, too. This included several comments about the whisky search. The app’s whisky search results were not optimal, so we gave our developers one important task: fix it. During the past few weeks, we’ve implemented a few changes that make whisky searching a lot easier. We updated the search algorithm and added a bunch of new barcodes, so both the barcode and text search have improved significantly. Try the app & WIN whisky We’re very curious to… Read More

Whisky Bottle Photo Tips

The option to upload your own photo of whiskies that don’t have a photo yet, is a popular feature in our Whisky Suggest App. We’ve received hundreds of bottle photos, but because of quality issues, we had to reject a few dozen, unfortunately. Want to make sure that your photo is accepted, and visible in the Whisky Suggest App? It’s easy, with these simple tips. 1. Good lighting Dark photos obviously are not ideal, but an overexposed bottle can be hard to read, too. Try taking photos during the day for the best daylight results. 2.

Major Whisky Suggest App update

About six months ago, the first beta version of the Whisky Suggest App was released. During the past few months, we’ve received a lot of feedback and we’re really happy that most of it was (very) positive.

Whisky Cask Finishes

Whiskies are generally matured in either American or European oak barrels, but some whiskies are finished in other types of casks. This can have a major influence on the nose, flavour and color of the whisky. We’ve compiled an overview of the most common cask finishes, and listed the flavour- and color effect of these additional maturation periods. Visit this page to learn more about whisk(e)y cask finishes and the influence on the whisky and its color. Read More

Whisky Rumours: July Edition

In the United States, all alcoholic beverage manufacturers must submit the labels of their products to the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) for approval. These labels are published on the TTB website under the Freedom of Information Act, which means that they’re available to see before the whiskies are released. Although it’s definitely not a guarantee that the submitted labels will actually end up on whisky bottles, or that these bottles will be released in any other country than the US, it is very interesting to look at. We all love rumours, right? These are some… Read More
