7 Best Whisky Subscription Services in Australia | Man of Many
Whisky Loot sources rare and interesting malts and packages them into neat 60mL bottles, delivered to your door. Each month sees three new drams on your doorstep with tasting notes and heaps of info on each drop. This is one of the best ways to try a selection of whiskies you probably otherwise wouldn’t be able to, as well as broaden your drinking horizons with a different expression, tailored to your tastes.
1. Whisky Loot
Bourbon Brothers was formed in Melbourne in 2020. It’s no small feat launching a product during a global pandemic, but when a small group of bourbon loving friends get together anything is possible. The lads discovered that getting your hands on tasters of premium bourbon and American whiskey’s was almost impossible in Australia. You’d have to spend upwards of $120 on a bottle to access it. Even worse, it might be something that you may not like. So they came up with a solution to the problem, Bourbon Brothers.
2. Bourbon Brothers Australia
There are hundreds of exceptional, critically acclaimed whiskies in Scotland and around the world that, sadly, you never even hear of in Australia, let alone have the chance to try. The Whisky Club exists to solve that problem. As Australia’s biggest whisky subscription service, their buying power makes them able to secure incredible single malts on an exclusive basis – members only.
3. The Whisky Club
The Australian branch of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society is different than most whisky subscription services because it’s really more like an exclusive club with a mail order department. Among the benefits you get by joining are invitations to tastings and other social events, access to premier venues, and the ability to try rare whiskies that were crafted just for the society. Also part of the package is the ability to order a “Malt of the Month” and have it sent to your door. Each one is a mega-rare, private stock Scotch whisky that usually sells out fast. Hence, joining the Scotch Malt Whisky Society is kind of like buying the privilege to buy whisky.

And to close out our list of best Australian whisky services is a site based in Australia that’s not technically a subscription. The Single Malt Whisky Club is in fact a co-operative with the sole purpose of putting top-shelf whisky in your mouth at an affordable rate. Using a system where everyone chips in, the club buys in bulk so as to get the price down for each individual. They then send a bottle to your door and you’ve ideally shed some dollars off that premium price tag. For those who aren’t big on commitment, there’s also an adjoining online store that offers luxurious single malts for purchase at any time.
5. Single Malt Whisky Club
True North Spirits was started by chemist Rowan Prangley who, after trying his first-ever single malt, made it his life’s mission to understand the science of whisky. With individually curated whisky kits available, in addition to monthly subscriptions that can be tailored to your tastes, there’s something for everybody.

The Whisky List is here to show you what can happen when four mates put their heads together over a common interest. The boys spend a lot of time (more than they’d like to admit) tracking down the best prices, coveted new releases, and stalking the latest news and updates from their favourite distilleries. Why? Because they want to share their findings with everyone! Their mission is to help Australians discover, enjoy, buy and share great whisky. It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or connoisseur, they’ll teach you about what makes each bottle special, and give you tips on which drop to try next. There’s no doubt that this is one of the best whisky subscriptions in Australia.
