It’s that time of year when we tend to look back and take stock, as well as look forward to the year ahead. As one of the co-founders of Distiller, I’m incredibly thankful for all of you who use our website and apps every day. The past few years have been pretty remarkable for us. What started as a small website for whiskey with a few hundred users is now a massive spirits platform with millions of users every year. You read our reviews and articles, create hundreds of thousands of Tastes and share us with your friends and family. That kind of commitment means so much, and your experience in Distiller is incredibly important to us. In order to help us continue improving and growing, we’re introducing new ways for you to support the work we do. Starting today, we are adding some advertising to Distiller.com and our apps. At the same time, we’re introducing an annual ad-free membership called Distiller Pro.
Distiller Pro is $10 a year and ensures that you’ll never see any ads while using the website or apps as long as you’re logged in. As a Distiller Pro member, you’ll also receive a Pro badge to be featured next to your profile image wherever it appears across Distiller.
By joining Distiller Pro, you’re supporting everything we do at Distiller, as well as everything we have planned for the future. We publish thousands of expert reviews and flavor profiles. We write new articles every week that keep you informed and up-to-date on the latest spirits releases. Our team is constantly working on new features and improvements day and night, weekends and holidays. Your membership helps make that happen.
If you don’t want to join Distiller Pro, your free Distiller Basic account will still work as it did before. The only difference is that you will now see some advertisements throughout the platform. If you do choose to upgrade to Distiller Pro, we’d like to thank you for supporting the work that the Distiller team does every day.
A huge thank you to the millions of you around the world who visit Distiller every year, especially those of you who have been with us since the beginning. You’re the reason we can do what we do. Here’s to many more years together!
