SEATTLE, July 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Distiller, the world's first free whiskey companion, recommendation and discovery engine, today announced a partnership with craft spirits merchant, Ezra's, making Distiller the first company to offer expansive whiskey reviews, ratings, recommendations and shipment from a single app. Through this partnership, Distiller users that live in states that allow purchase of spirits by mail will now be able to order whiskey from within the app. The new "buy-button" functionality will also make searching for more unique, hard-to-find whiskeys even simpler – instead of trying to hunt down a particular bottle at a distant liquor store or specialty website that could take 10 days to ship, users can request specific whiskeys and Distiller will work with Ezra's to track them down.
"We have found that our users are especially passionate about finding new and interesting whiskeys to try, and with this partnership we're now taking a big step towards being involved in that journey every step of the way," said Mikael Mossberg, co-founder and CEO of Distiller. "Now, if they get a recommendation or read about a whiskey they want to try or gift to someone, they can purchase and have it in a few days. Not only are the vast majority of whiskeys now available for shipment almost anywhere in the country, but we can also work with users who want to get their hands on harder to find products that aren't available locally."
"Distiller has carved out a loyal following among both novice and longtime whiskey appreciators, so naturally, this was a perfect fit for us," said Adam Newman, co-founder of Ezra's. "We're excited to give Distiller's whiskey fans access to our expansive selection of spirits and get their purchases delivered directly to them."
The Distiller app was developed for the novice, adventurous and discerning whiskey lovers to explore their personal tastes and learn more about the craft, history, culture and world of whiskey, while connecting with other of like-minded enthusiasts. It is the only app to offer personalized whiskey recommendations based on flavor preference, expertise level, drinking environment, price and other criteria. Users can create and share digital collections, and find out what other people around the world are tasting, drinking and thinking.
