Win a three-month subscription to The Spirits Society.
WITH A RAFT of subscription services hitting the market, taking care of everything from organic vegetables to chocolate, sometimes it's worth thinking outside the box.
And, given that The Spirits Society is from the same team that brought you The Spirit Show – which returns this year after a hugely successful debut last December – you know that its new subscription service will do just that.
The Spirits Society is all about enriching your knowledge – and your booze cabinet – by helping you discover new premium spirits from world-class distilleries, delivering them direct to your home. On a monthly basis, you'll receive new, unusual, premium bottles of gin, rum, vodka, whisky and more. And because the service is all about thinking about more than what's inside the box, you'll get detailed tasting notes and information about the distillers, as well as mixers, garnishes, and recipes, too.
The first box, for example, contained a 70cl bottle of Trevethan gin (with an RRP of £37.95), as well as a miniature bottle of Edgerton pink gin, two Franklin & Sons tonic waters, orange and rosemary to garnish, dried chorizo from Cleaver & Keg, and a pouch of botanicals, so that subscribers could get to know not just the 'what' of the spirit they're drinking, but the 'how', too.
You can choose which world-class spirit you'll receive in your next box (vodka, whisky, gin, rum, to name just a few), but many subscribers are choosing to make use of the 'Spirit Surprise' subscription. Its premise is so simple you'll wonder why it's not been done before: each month, you'll receive a specially selected bottle of premium spirit, hand-chosen by The Spirits Society's team, with all of the accompaniments.
The idea is to take you outside your comfort zone and to open yourself up to spirits and flavours you either didn't realise you liked, or simply hadn't come across before. The extensive tasting notes will be your guide, and you can relax knowing you're sampling something that's vouched for by experts, helping you build a back bar that'll be the toast of the town.
