SO, WHAT IS THE PERTHSHIRE WHISKY CLUB?
Well, it's all rather exciting really. This is an online community united by our love for whisky. We will produce an article on whisky each month for The Perthshire Magazine, but we are also going to produce exclusive content for club members. That means we'll be writing articles for members of the club that won't appear in the magazine. These articles will be emailed out to our members. There is also a book on whisky in the pipeline. Members will get first dibs. If you join you will also get a rather natty certificate. Who doesn't love a natty certificate?
We also love our members to send us their tasting notes on the whiskies that they are enjoying at the moment. We will publish the best ones in the magazine and in our newsletter. The tasting notes don't have to be long. Just a hundred and fifty words is fine. That's about the size of this paragraph. Or smaller if you fancy. They can be serious, fun, technical or whatever you want. Very few people ever get to have their thoughts on whisky published, but here everyone can join in. Because that's the essence of a club, don't you think?
WHO CAN JOIN?
We have called it the Perthshire Whisky Club because we are based in Perthshire, but we are not going to exclude anyone who is outside the county. Whether you're a whisky drinker or a distillery. So if you live in Texas and drink Dalwhinnie, you are still welcome. However, you must be over the legal drinking age.
HOW DO YOU BECOME A MEMBER?
How much does it cost to join? It's completely free! All you will need to do is sign up by email. Your information will not be shared with anyone else and we will not pester you with billions of spam type emails trying to get you to buy things. We really hope you will enjoy the content and we can't wait to hear from you.
ARE THEIR OTHER WAYS TO GET INVOLVED?
Yes! You can send us suggestions on whiskies you'd like us to write about. We are also happy to have articles (or bottles) submitted to us. There are guidelines on our website if you’re interested in doing so. If you love to drink and photograph whisky (or you’ve just been for a great distillery tour you’d like to tell us about, etc), then we are happy to consider your work. All submissions should be sent to our email: firstname.lastname@example.org
