Stories & Sips Whiskey Club Trial Membership

November 21, 2023

No catch, no contract, no fine print. 

Take advantage of all member benefits of the Stories & Sips Whiskey Club for the next 60 days, on us. It’s a chance to see if membership is for you with no obligation. If you don’t wish to remain a member, simply cancel online anytime before the end of the trial, no questions asked, no need to speak to anyone, no need to email. Wish to remain a member? We’ll bill you monthly until you cancel. That’s it, that’s the pitch! Got more questions? I can be reached directly anytime on 

My goal is to build the largest community of engaged Irish whiskey fans around the world through the delivery of a win/win/win model that introduces small and large Irish whiskey brands to new customers around the world through exclusive events, single cask releases and access to the people who make the pours. 

By introducing you to what we do and why do it we hope to attract more and more members, release more and more great whiskeys, support the growth of the Irish whiskey category and have the craic while doing it!

Ready to join? Let’s go!

Remember, we have no contracts and you can cancel your membership anytime on your account page (even before the 60 days trial is up!). If you don’t cancel you’ll just pay monthly for as long as you wish to remain a member. Note: Payment charged in US dollars so Euro amount may fluctuate slightly based on exchange rates at time of transaction. (at the moment, $20 is approximately Eur 18)

Why do we need your credit card? Two reasons: to prevent spammers joining the site and making life difficult for us and to allow you seamlessly continue your membership if you decide not to cancel your membership before the trial period is over. Again, you can cancel anytime before or after your trial period. You’re in full control of your membership.

Available to new members only. Join from Ireland, U.S., Europe, U.K.
