Whiskery: New alcohol delivery service in Malaysia offers an adventure through whisky & more

October 7, 2021

Whisking us into a wonderland of whisky, wine and more, Whiskery is KL's new independent online retailer, with a fondness for felines and an eagerness to explore diverse drinks. 

Founded by three siblings whose tastes flow from obscure distillers to globally renowned liquors, Whiskery reflects the bottles that truly excite them. 

Whiskery's founders can personally vouch for everything on their platform - they've researched every label and immersed themselves in the most intriguing choices. Glass by glass, they're enthusiastically sipping their way through their entire catalogue!

They aren't certified experts but they're certainly enthusiasts - everyday people whose passion runs deep, whose wide-ranging repertoire will help you discover your next favourite drink, the way you get a trusted recommendation at a wine shop.

Their passion for a terrific tipple runs deep. The three include one half of the original founders of The Bee (one of the Klang Valley's liveliest hangouts for food, drinks and music); they also have years of experience in advertising agencies, building e-commerce brands, and being friends with wine makers and master blenders from distilleries all around the world. 

Whether you're into artisanal craft spirits or premium brands, seeking to splurge or maintaining a modest budget, check out whiskery.com.my or WhatsApp these cool cats at 011-5936-6245 to chat with them.

Bonus points for Whiskery's purr-worthy website, wild with whiskers, paws and tails - the cat's pajamas!

As its name promises, Whiskery is a powerhouse of whisky, especially Scotch, with more than 50 oak-aged varietals and vintages of malt and grain - if your heart's in the Highlands, you'll feel at home here, together with Scotland's venerable regions that span Speyside to Campbeltown, Islay to the Lowlands.

A Whiskery favourite is the Riverflow by Morrison & Mackay, a single malt shrouded in mystery, a composite of casks from an undisclosed distillery somewhere in Speyside. It’s a toast to warm, fuzzy feelings, with distinct undercurrents of vanilla - Whiskery describes it as drinking up a dose of happiness, the whisky equivalent of digging into bread-and-butter pudding or feasting on freshly made waffle cones.

Other pleasurable swigs of Scotch recommended by Whiskery include Bruichladdich's Classic Laddie, an Islay single malt with a salty-citrusy tang; the Arran Port Cask Finish, a charming, rich-flavoured, 8-year-old that's ideal for an after-dinner dram; and The Balvenie DoubleWood 17YO, a top-end choice that's first matured in an American oak cask before being transferred into an European oak sherry cask. 

The luck of the Irish is also with Whiskery, spotlighting two main whiskey brands, Teeling and Bushmills, which boast clean-tasting, easy-sipping maltiness.

Notable in the Teeling range is the sweet, spicy and fruity Teeling Single Grain, an amber beauty fully matured in Californian red wine barrels, one of the world's few Single Grain bottlings, winning best in class annually at the World Whiskies Awards since its release.

From Bushmills, the Black Bush might be our best bet, with an intense character balanced by an incredible smoothness; other fans might find the triple-distilled Original more approachable or prefer the 10 Year Old for its aroma of honey, vanilla and milk chocolate.
A thoughtful selection from other parts of the world is also available. 

Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky is another distinguished award-winner, a delicate single grain distilled at the foot of the Bainskloof Pass in Wellington, South Africa. It's the only whisky in the world to use 100% sun-kissed South African grain in a uniquely warm location, aged for three years in first-fill bourbon casks and then for another two years in new first-fill bourbon casks. 

Asian whiskies also enjoy their due at Whiskery: Check out Taiwan's Omar single malt, matured either in Spanish ex-sherry or American ex-bourbon casks, and the Yamazakura 963 21 Year Old, meticulously blended by the Sasanokawa Shuzo distillery in Fukushima, Japan, with a combination of single malt and grain whisky, yielding a mellow fragrance and complex flavour.

While some of Whiskery's offerings scale the higher echelons of prestige and price, customers can also casually imbibe on the Everyday Whisky selection, featuring economical, value-for-money options.

One of Whiskery's favourite drinks is in this section: The Black Bottle Blended Scotch, a blend of Islay, Highland and Speyside malts, clocking in at RM226. Whiskery's founders originally discovered this while hunting for a beverage worthy of a 50th birthday celebration - they were won over by its subtle peaty nuances and smoky signature scent, rivalling the virtues of more extravagant brands. It's now a staple in the Whiskery family's personal catalogue - they regularly return to it for something light and breezy.

Beyond whisky, Whiskery strives to offer one of the best spirits selections online in KL, including rum, gin, wine, organic wine and Champagne. 

Whiskery’s top pick is the Phraya Rum, respected as Asia's sole ultra-premium luxury rum, distilled just outside Bangkok by a five-person production team. Its foundation hails from locally grown sugarcane from Thailand's fertile Nakhon Pathom province, distilled with natural water from the Ta Chin river. Each bottle is painstakingly filled individually, sealed with a gold outer mesh for a lovely flourish, 

Gin up: Whiskery is particularly fond of the St. George Terroir Gin, recommended to them by a friend only a year ago. Forest-driven and earthy, it evokes California bay laurel, coastal sage and other botanicals of the American Golden State. Sip it neat and be transported, or enhance it with a rosemary garnish.

The cat's out of the bag: Whiskery is only months old, but it wants to be one of Malaysia's best alcohol delivery sites, ideal for personal consumption or for gifts to send across the country. It has that potential, bolstered already by an ambitious selection of spirits that would be a strong addition to any collection.
