There’s already a load of excellent whisky and gin subscription boxes on the market, but to make your choice even more difficult, True North is launching a range of new tasting kits for spirit adventurers looking to explore beyond the mainstream brands.
True North build kits around the belief that we are all adventurers at heart. Each kit delivers beautifully packaged whisky, craft gin and potentially other premium spirits, complemented by educational materials profiling the makers, ingredients and places behind each spirit.
Become a member and get access to Flavour Trail, a world-first interactive sensory tasting platform which records your preferred aromas and flavours to archive taste preferences and make personalised recommendations for future kits.
True North also offers online, face-to-face masterclasses led by founder Rowan Prangley, guest distillers and specialists. All educational programs are underpinned by Rowan’s educationally-backed understanding of the industry and chemistry behind distilled spirit production.
“The premium whisky and craft gin market is experiencing strong growth in Australia and the world,” said Rowan. “True North gives distilleries the chance to engage with spirit lovers by allowing them to try before they buy.”
The first two True North limited edition kits feature some of the most sought-after premium peated whiskies and five of Australia’s most exciting craft gins.
