History of the Company

Mack started Taster’s Club back in 2012 from his bedroom in San Francisco while working days as a web developer. Passionate about booze, he started looking for ways to showcase today’s exciting craft spirits to fans just like him.

Five years later, Taster’s Club has expanded into 11 different categories, introducing thousands of spirits fans to the coolest stuff out there. The company was bought by Sureswift Capital in 2017. Mack has been working on various other projects and is mentoring startups at Earnest Capital.
