Life has its ups and downs. My successes will be tempered with failures, friends will come and go; my relationships will blossom and bloom before wilting and rotting. Yet, through all of that, I know that I can always count on whisky to get me through every big moment in my life.
Whether you're mixing it into a cocktail, drinking it with a mixer like Coke or orange juice (I swear by the Kentucky screwdriver) or simply sipping it on the rocks after a long and hard week, there's seemingly a whisky for every occasion. Provided you can find a nice place to sit, that is.
Unfortunately, ladies and gentlemen, whisky is many things, but portable is not really one of them. It isn't one of those things you can swig in a paper bag while sitting on the sidewalk. No; you need a bar to stand and grimace at, a chair to sit in front of the fire in. Sure, there's the hip flask, but I find those unwieldy, not to mention difficult to clean.
No... we need something simpler. Something disposable, some way of carrying whisky around so easy that a child could do it. If that wasn't, you know, super illegal. Like one of those Capri Sun pouches we all loved as children, but have sadly left in the dusty tomes of childhood past as adult responsibilities loomed large.
Well, if you're anything like me and one of your main goals in life is to be able to get drunk out of a Capri Sun-like pouch without an engineering degree and several judgemental stares from other adults, then this subscription service might be the solution you've been craving.
For as little as $10 a month, Whisky Me will allow you to taste some of the finest whisky the world has to offer, and you don't even have to look a bartender in the eye or put on pants!
Once a month, this amazing whisky subscription service will send you a 1.7-ounce package of single-malt whisky, from a variety of distilleries such as Aberfeldy, Macallan or Royal Lochnagar. The pouch comes with a nice twisty top, and you're bound to have a ton of great tipples for relative peanuts.
Unfortunately, whisky lovers, this wonderful news of alcoholic indulgence comes a slight caveat. Whisky Me is a subscription service that is only available in London, so unless you've got an English relative or a trip planned to the British capital any time soon, you're probably going to have to wait to sample whisky in a pouch.
However, let's not get too downhearted; if you can count on the Brits to do one thing, it's to overindulge in alcoholic beverages. If Whisky Me continues to expand and grow, then it's surely a matter of time before the whisky subscription service makes its way across the Atlantic Ocean. Fingers crossed.
