Flaviar is a subscription service that introduces members to premium liquors from distillers around the world. When you sign up for a subscription, you begin by telling Flaviar what kind of alcohol you like to drink. You can choose from the following: single malt scotch whisky, bourbon & rye, whisk(e)y, rum, gin, brandy & Cognac, tequila & mezcal, and more. Every quarter, you’ll receive a themed tasting box that’s filled with three 1.5 oz samples of your spirit of choice, and you’ll get to select one full-sized premium bottle to add to your collection. Additionally, members receive free shipping on qualifying orders and are granted access to exclusive bottlings, rare releases, tailored recommendations, tasting events, and more.

What We Love

  • Tasting kits allow you to sample spirits from around the world without committing to the purchase of full-sized bottles.

  • Having spirits delivered to your front door is super convenient (and makes it easy to turn your living room into a speakeasy).

  • Memberships include a full-size bottle of premium spirits every quarter. Over time, this helps stock a very impressive home bar.

  • Memberships are customizable, so if you’re only into tequila or only want to receive samples of scotch, no problem!

What You Should Know

  • Tasting packs ship from distributors across the US and Europe and take around 7-10 days to arrive.

  • This is not your typical subscription box. We like to think of it more as a “spirits club.”

  • Flaviar offers a wide range of bottles for sale. Prices start around $30 per bottle and go all the way up to $500 and beyond. When it comes time to choose your free quarterly bottle, not all bottles will qualify.

  • Casual drinkers are likely to enjoy Flaviar for the tasting kits and quarterly bottles alone, but there’s additional value here for those who’ll take advantage of free shipping on qualifying orders and access to a curated selection of hard-to-find bottles.

We Recommend Flaviar If

  • You love trying different spirits and want to sample products from different distillers without maxing out your credit card at the local liquor store.

  • You like the idea of sampling wee drams of spirits from around the world that might not be available from your local retailers.

  • You’re looking to stock your bar.

  • You want access to exclusive offerings, special cask bottlings, early releases, and rare bottles.
