Raise a Glass, Whisky Suggest is Back!

Whether you are brand new to the site or have been part of the whisky community for years, welcome! In late 2020 the original founder of Whisky Suggest wrote a heartfelt note to our members saying that he was going to pause all future development on the website and app. As a group of whisky enthusiasts, investors, and entrepreneurs, we saw this indefinite pause as both a loss for the great community of fellow whisky lovers using the app, and also an opportunity to own a business doing something we love.

As of May 5th, 2021, Whisky Suggest has new owners from across the pond in the United States who spell whiskey with an ‘e’ and hope to bring a newfound energy for growing both the community and the application itself. We are not some faceless corporation looking to simply add an app to our business portfolio. We are a group of 5 people who are passionate about trying new whiskies and helping others to find whiskies that they will love.

Coming soon, we want to provide you with increased social functionality, better recommendations, and other new features. Our mission is to enhance your overall whisky exploration experience and find your perfect whisky. What’s not going to change is our commitment to quality and the community.

Our lawyers recommended we point out that our privacy policy has changed. You can review it here. Grab a dram to wet your whistle first though, it’s a pretty dry read…

We would be remiss if we did not give a huge thanks to Wiep and his entire development team. His desire to rediscover his elusive favorite whisky brought to life all the amazing functionality that exists today. The creation of the website and the apps has been a massive undertaking. We are truly honored to pick up where the founding team has left off.

If you are visiting the website for the first time, be sure to download our app available on Android and iOS. There is a ton of additional functionality not currently available on the web. This includes tracking your collection, wishlist, ratings and personalized recommendations.

For those of you who may have submitted whiskies, feedback, or other questions in the last few months and have not seen a response, we apologize for the delay. The team will be working through any items that may have come through during the development pause and transition.

We look forward to becoming a deeper part of the worldwide whisky community that calls Whisky Suggest home. The team hopes to get a chance to get to know all of you a little better very soon. We will also certainly give you a chance to get to know us better as well over the coming weeks. Thank you for being a part of what makes Whisky Suggest great, and please help us make it even better! If you have feedback, or just want to say hi, drop us a line! Leave a comment or send an email to contact@whiskysuggest.com. You can also find us on twitter and facebook to stay connected.

Sip confidently,

The New Whisky Suggest Team

  • Great news !!! This app has a great group of fans and all of them will e very happy it will continue. Good luck to you all and keep up the good work. Slaìnte!

  • Was pleasantly surprised to see an email from whiskey suggest in my inbox this morning. Really missed using the features of the app to find a good whiskey, especially when out at a restaurant or watering hole that only list the name of the spirit and when you ask someone what it’s like they are unable to answer. So once again I will be able to look up a whiskey to see if it fits my tastes or if it is something I want to explore. Welcome Back!

  • Excellent news. US and Canadian whisk(e) y has been relatively recent new ground for me, looking deeper than the Makers Marks and Jack Daniels, so having our US friends on board is great news. Thank you, guys, for taking the helm of what was already a wonderful App and experience. Sláinte!

  • Hello All, Thank you for taking the helm Wiep created. I’ve used the app since 2017 and have enjoyed my many exchanges with him. I’m happy to know the foundation he built will continue to be built upon.

  • Thanks.Thanks.Thanks

    you have as much pleasure as we do. I will suggest a lot of new whisky’s that I bought. Please can you give the possibility to search by alfabet. So that you don’t have to scroll a long time throuhg your own list. Thnx again. Toms Rijswijk

  • Excelent, i am very happy to hear the app is continuing. I have been using it a lot and plan to keep doing so in the future.

  • So glad you picked up this app I was dreading having to re-cataloging my whisky’s
    The update I would like to see is search by alphabetical.

  • Great news. This is my favourite Whisky app. I am glad it is kept. Good luck! Slainte

  • First of all, thank you so much for continuing to keep this awesome app alive! I was sad reading the message from creator that it wasn’t going to be maintained, and really hoped that someone would step in and revive it. I felt pretty optimistic it would happen,I mean it’s easily the best whiskey app and tracker available, so it was pretty much inevitable… Happy it turned out that way! Cheers!

  • This is exciting news! I use the app consistantly every week, especially when I’m out ‘hunting’. Thanks to Wiep for all he did to get things started. Thank you to y’all for bringing the app back!

  • Great news that you will continue Whisky Suggest. Thanks to Wiep for creating this great app and your support. Looking forward to the new features you may have in mind.
    All the best for your project!
