Hi, I’m Lisa. I’m currently a member of 2 wine delivery clubs and 1 coffee club. As you can imagine, this means I get A LOT of targeted advertising offering me wine, beer, gin, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and a lot of things you can’t drink either!
Yum, Rose at Sea, in the summer of 2021.
Good coffee starts my day (full disclosure – I drink it strong and black, and prefer cold brew – as long as I had time to prepare it in advance), and I’m a complete wine snob.
I was fortunate to work in a wine packing plant in a previous life, I endured (hard work, I assure you) being put through the WSET level 2 wine course, and ended up on the tasting panel. The tasting panel is not as glamorous as it sounds, we usually got to taste wine where it was on the edge of being not acceptable… go figure!
As a result, I’ve had some fantastic beer, wine and spirits experiences and finding great selections is a big part of the pleasure of dining for me.
Based in the UK, I’m always keen to try a new beverage subscription experience – so this is my excuse to test it on your behalf!
Why I Want to Help You
An excuse for trying new beverages isn’t good enough?
I, like many of you, am the target of multiple forms of advertising and while I’m happy with the current wine and coffee subscriptions I have, I’m keen to know what else is out there – and how they all compare!
By starting this journey pre-Christmas 2021, my goal is to have developed a great resource of beverage subscription-related articles by the time next Christmas rolls around. So while I’m sure very few people will stumble across this in 2021, let’s make 2022 fantastic!
On a more practical note, with all of these clubs, it’s really useful to know what you’re likely to get before you part with your hard-earned cash. I’ll be looking at things like:
- Value for Money
- What’s in the box (sometimes what IS the box)
- How they are equipped to deal with customer interaction
- T’s and C’s (at the point of review – don’t hold me to them if they’ve changed in the meantime)
- Deals for getting in
- What the deal is for getting out…
- Any referral schemes for your friends
- Cash commitment etc
The Goal of This Site
I’m here to help you make an informed decision about drinks clubs, or perhaps just to entertain you with my views on drinks or particular beverage choices!
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
