Top 3 Taster’s Club Alternative Alcohol Club Picks

When it comes to online alcohol clubs, there are many to choose from – which is excellent news for you as a consumer. But, so many options can make it overwhelming to decide which option is best. Taster's Club stands out among other clubs by working alongside upcoming and award-winning producers. We bring members handpicked, curated selections and the stories behind each bottle directly from the producers, shipped straight to their doors each month.

We’ll break everything down for you here so you can learn about Taster’s Club and see Taster’s Club alternative options for yourself to make the best choice.

Top Key Alcohol Clubs

Here are the top alcohol clubs and what they’re all about.

Taster’s Club

tasters club

Taster’s Club offers nine clubs with 13 memberships, so there’s something for every taste and preference. We carefully curate bottles each month, educate customers, and deliver directly to you or your recipient of choice (Memberships make great gifts!) for a completely personalized experience that expands palates and broadens liquor knowledge. 

What makes Taster’s Club so unique is that each month, our internal experts share the unique story behind the selected bottle, what makes it special, tasting notes, and suggested cocktail recipes. And, through the club’s online bottle shop, it’s easy to buy single bottles from past features or everyday favorites to bolster an ever-growing spirit collection or stock up on a new favorite. 

Taster’s Club Alternative Options

PourMore

PourMore aims to help customers explore handpicked, small-batch or unique spirits beyond everyday staples and broaden their horizons through new experiences, or send a membership as a gift. They offer eight liquor clubs that include monthly tasting notes and cocktail recipes, and they ship to most states.

Mash & Grape

Mash & Grape is passionate about celebrating liquor artisans worldwide and helping its customers easily discover better drinking at the same time. They work with retailers across the country and deliver to over 40 states, including exclusive products from distillery and distributor partnerships through six distinct alcohol clubs.

Flaviar

The Taster's Club Flaviar alternative seeks out rare, unique spirits to offer its members exclusive releases not available anywhere else. They offer these in full or smaller sample-size bottles, so you don’t have to commit too much before trying something new. The club offers three membership levels and serves the UK, Europe, and some of the US.
