Top FAQs

What is Pour & Sip?

Pour & Sip is your platform for drinks discovery! Every month we’ll send you five different 30ml whisky samples, each set curated by our experts to bring you the maximum in flavour experience and enjoyment. Inside you’ll find some of our top discoveries, alongside old favourites and much-loved expressions. We’ve even jotted down our tasting notes on handy cards, with space for you to add your own thoughts, too. Plus, you’re in control of your subscription and can pause or cancel at any time. 

What is inside the monthly Pour & Sip box?

The very first Pour & Sip box includes a welcome pack and two Glencairn tasting glasses, alongside your first five 30ml whisky samples, tasting note cards and a how to taste whisky guide. Then each month we’ll send your regular box, filled to the brim with five different expressions and note cards! 

What are all the perks with the subscription?

Pour & Sip is an experience, not just a subscription. We want to make sure you feel part of our community! As well as your welcome pack with two glasses, your how to taste whisky guide and your five different 30ml whisky samples each month, you’ll receive tasting cards with information about each expression, and space to write your notes.  You’ll also be able to access our exclusive Member Store, where you can find discounts on full bottles as well as the chance to try past month's boxes. Along with that we've also got our Pour & Sip rewards program, giving you the chance to earn points to either spend at the Member Store or use to save money on future boxes. Plus, we’ll host live tastings to make sure you get the most out of your subscription – we love sharing our whisky knowledge. Even better, we’ll pop an extra-special dram in the post every so often to celebrate your time with us!

How much do I pay for my subscription?

We like to keep things super easy and transparent. If you’ve signed up to our monthly or bi-monthly membership, we’ll charge you £29.95 every time your box is due, on the 27th of the previous month (so we’ll take payment for February’s box on 27th January, for example). If you’ve paused your subscription, you won’t pay a penny. There’s no joining fee, and we won’t charge you for amending or cancelling your plan. No sneaky hidden fees, no postage costs, no worries! If you want to update your membership in between boxes, you’ll need to do so before your next payment date. This happens on the 27th of the month for every recurring subscription. 

What exactly am I paying for?

The whole experience! Were you to try a dram of each of these whiskies in a bar, it would certainly cost more than your monthly subscription – and that’s if the bar even stocked them. Pour & Sip gives the convenience of five unusual whiskies at your fingertips at a much lower price. Our expert team has taken the hard work out of choosing, filling each box with expressions that you won’t find everywhere. Not to mention all the extras – our beautiful boxes, tasting notes, discounts on your favourite bottles and two live tastings to join each month!

What whiskies do you include in Pour & Sip boxes?

Our team of experts curates each box to tell a story. We choose whiskies that are new and exciting, from big-name distilleries and new faces. And we pop our favourites in there, too. If you want a sneak peek at what’s in the box, keep an eye on our blog posts and social media channels, we love to tease! 

Can I buy this as a gift?

Yes! We have a three-month subscription designed with gifting in mind. Your lucky recipient will receive a Pour & Sip box each month, and their first box will include two Glencairn tasting glasses, alongside five 30ml whisky samples, a how to taste whisky guide and tasting note cards. They'll also get access to our Member Store, rewards program and live tastings too. It’s the gift that keeps on giving!     

If I do love one of the whiskies, how do I get the full bottle?

Easy! Full bottles of every Pour & Sip sample are available to buy from Master of Malt. We’ll even give you unique discount codes so you can access exclusive member prices, too.

Will I get a discount to purchase the full bottle?

Yes! Every month we’ll make sure you get an exclusive discount code so you can make the most of members-only prices for full bottles on Master of Malt.

What size bottles will I receive?

You’ll get five different 30ml measures of whisky each month.
