Whether you are brand new to the site or have been part of the whisky community for years, welcome! In late 2020 the original founder of Whisky Suggest wrote a heartfelt note to our members saying that he was going to pause all future development on the website and app. As a group of whisky enthusiasts, investors, and entrepreneurs, we saw this indefinite pause as both a loss for the great community of fellow whisky lovers using the app, and also an opportunity to own a business doing something we love.
As of May 5th, 2021, Whisky Suggest has new owners from across the pond in the United States who spell whiskey with an ‘e’ and hope to bring a newfound energy for growing both the community and the application itself. We are not some faceless corporation looking to simply add an app to our business portfolio. We are a group of 5 people who are passionate about trying new whiskies and helping others to find whiskies that they will love.
Coming soon, we want to provide you with increased social functionality, better recommendations, and other new features. Our mission is to enhance your overall whisky exploration experience and find your perfect whisky. What’s not going to change is our commitment to quality and the community.
We would be remiss if we did not give a huge thanks to Wiep and his entire development team. His desire to rediscover his elusive favorite whisky brought to life all the amazing functionality that exists today. The creation of the website and the apps has been a massive undertaking. We are truly honored to pick up where the founding team has left off.
If you are visiting the website for the first time, be sure to download our app available on Android and iOS. There is a ton of additional functionality not currently available on the web. This includes tracking your collection, wishlist, ratings and personalized recommendations.
For those of you who may have submitted whiskies, feedback, or other questions in the last few months and have not seen a response, we apologize for the delay. The team will be working through any items that may have come through during the development pause and transition.
We look forward to becoming a deeper part of the worldwide whisky community that calls Whisky Suggest home. The team hopes to get a chance to get to know all of you a little better very soon. We will also certainly give you a chance to get to know us better as well over the coming weeks. Thank you for being a part of what makes Whisky Suggest great, and please help us make it even better! If you have feedback, or just want to say hi, drop us a line! Leave a comment or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also find us on twitter and facebook to stay connected.
