7 Mobile Apps for Advanced Whisky Drinkers

A cell phone is no glass of whisky, but in terms of handheld comforts, it comes in a close second. Whether you’re looking to locate the dram of your dreams or catalog a growing collection, there’s an app that can make the task easier. We tapped our way to the best.

Drizly: Place an order for delivery
Order whisky from your couch. Selection depends on how quickly you need the whisky—immediately, that day, or in a few. You’ll pay a small premium for the convenience. In New York, Macallan Sherry Oak 12 arrives to your door for $70, Maker’s Mark for $35. (Available in select U.S. markets.) Free (iOS and Android)

Barreled and Drammit: Be a more social drinker
Both of these apps offer user-generated tasting notes to help connect with like-minded whisky lovers or create a network across your current tasting circle. Barreled offers an activity feed, while Drammit makes posting to Facebook easy. Free (iOS and Android)

Lush Cocktails: Whip up a whisky cocktail
Discover new cocktails by name, ingredient, flavor, occasion (luckily, even brunch counts as an occasion), or search by recipe type, such as classic drinks. There are hundreds of recipes to choose from, and over 40 include whisky. $1.99 (iOS)

Whiskey Searcher: Find an elusive bottle
Search the world for the bottle of your dreams across retailers offering over one million spirits listings. Find the best local price or search the globe for rarities. A paid Pro version values your collection. Free (iOS)

WhiskyFest 2018: Navigate whisky wonderland
Prioritize your whisky hit list, map a route, and post your tasting adventures to social media with ease. Whether you’re in Chicago, Washington D.C., San Francisco, or New York, you’ll have the pour list and seminars at your fingertips. Free (iOS and Android)

Whisky Log: Track your tastings
A straightforward tool that makes chronicling the whiskies you’ve tasted as smooth as that initial sip. Entries are recorded chronologically. Easily add photos, inventory your own collection, and mark bottles as empty when that time arrives. Free (iOS)
