The Summerton Club is a high quality spirit subscription based club, but one that offers a lot of flexibility along with high end products delivered to your door each month.
With a cost of £50 a month, it’s straightforward, that includes delivery and a high quality bottle of spirit from a selection of aged brandies (Armagnac, calvados, Cognac), rums (cachaça, rum, rhum, ron), whiskies (bourbon, whiskey, whisky) and more, from around the world.
You can opt from just a whisky selection or have a random selection across the board of drinks.
We received the Mackmyra Gruguld Swedish Single Malt Whisky, which comes presented beautifully in a double layer box. The bottle itself is chunky with a pretty gold fleck design giving it a festive feel. Obviously we needed to try it out and not being big whisky drinker myself I got a couple of males to test it out and they were thoroughly impressed. Not having tasted Swedish whisky before they confirmed it was really smooth with a warm spicy finish with fits with the notes regarding it’s taste:
Spicy with a nice balance between fruits,
berries, oils and oak. Blackcurrant, pear
fudge and grapefruit. Pleasant spicy oak
with hints of tar and tobacco leaves. The
texture has a light oiliness.
What makes The Summerton Club more than just the usual subscription service is that it sources really unusual and hard to get hold of bottles allowing you to try luxury brands that you wouldn’t just pick up in your local supermarket. For example the Gruguld variety from MackMyra isn’t even availalble in the UK.
This looks good as either a treat for yourself or as a gift for a friend or family member, which brings me on to this time of year. With Christmas fast approaching, most of us know whisky loves among us and if you are looking for a special gift then this could be it.
The Summerton Club offer a variety of options so you can opt for monthly, bi monthly or quarterly options, you can also cancel at any time so your hands aren’t tied to a lengthy subscription should you not want to.
From my experience the quality is there, any recipient would be delighted with their delivery and it gives that touch of luxury combined with a unusual product to try.
If you want to check it out, head over to The Summerton Club now to see your options and get your order in for the perfect festive gift!!
