There is no other spirits club that even comes close to what the people of Flaviar brings to the table. Besides giving, you cocktails that you will not find in the local liquor store, they also hold live events that has no extra charge. Plus you get VIP treatment at these live events. You may be on a tour, but you will never treated like a tourist.

Here is another little tidbit you get when you become a member, the good folks at Flaviar look far and wide for craft spirits. Then make exclusive deals with the distillers, and pass them on to you. How does that sound for an added benefit. They search the globe to find these craft spirits, and share them with club members only.

If you or someone you love, loves spirits this will be the best gift that you could give to them. You get way more then what you pay for. I am glad to be a part of the team, and be able to bring this amazing club into the light for you.

Exclusive Tours:

There is one last thing that I want to make sure that you know about. As a member of the club, whoever you give this too, will be invited to exclusive distillery tours at no extra charge. Just think of how dear old dad would enjoy a bus tour with other like-minded individuals, and be taken on a magical journey of distilleries. See where the alcohol is made and be given samples to try right there on the site.Exclusive Tours:

What person who loves whiskey or bourbons, would’nt love getting on a bus, and be taken to a distillery, be given a taste of the craft, and not have to drive back home. I know that if one of my children was to give me this gift, I would be flying over the moon.

Make Your Gift Stand Out This Christmas: With a falviar membership.

Very soon the holiday season will be here. This year most people will do their shopping on line, do you want to be like the crowd of those who will rush to Amazon? Or, would you like to be one of the few who thought to give that special someone a gift that keeps giving all year long? Imagine your loved one finding a Flaviar membership in their stocking this year, rather then a new tie or underwear.The Joy

Why Flaviar:

Every year at Christmas time, we struggle to find that perfect gift for the people we love. And this year it will be even more difficult to shop for our loved one’s. With the corona virus still looming around, it is not very safe to go to crowded public stores to shop. As the cold weather returns, so does a second wave of the virus.

You can be like everyone else, and shop for the same things, like slippers, ties and under garments. However, you are a lot smarter than everyone else, aren’t you? You know that you have a whiskey lover somewhere in your family or circle of friends. Plus you are smart enough to stay safe and shop from the comfort of your sofa.

You are one of the few that will make your gift stand out this Christmas. And, get them a membership to the worlds best whiskey club, Flaviar. This gift will give them more then just whiskey samples, The owners of Flaviar have been working their bottoms off to bring improvements to the club. I think that anyone who gets a membership to this club will be more then grateful. And, you will be happy that you got to stay home to bring all that joy.

We All Have Dreams:Whiskey Dreams

No matter what age we are, we all have visions of sugar plums dancing through our heads on Christmas eve. The older we get, the more we have whiskey dreams dancing through our heads.

This year, your loved one needs a hero, so be their hero and give them a gift that they will brag about to all of their friends and co-workers. A gift that will keep giving all year long. This is not a one time delivery, no, when you give a Flaviar gift, the recipient gets a delivery four time throughout the year.

Every quarter of the year The person that you got the gift for will receive a tasting box of their choosing. Plus they will also get a full size bottle of their choosing. The giving does’nt stop there though, there is more for your loved to get then just the alcohol. Are you going to fill their dreams this year, or fall flat?

Distillery Tours:Distillery Tours:

Members get invites to special events, like the distillery tour. These are provided for the members at no extra charge. The person you give this to will be treated like a MVP. They will also receive special pricing on bottles at the distillery.

Keep in mind that the bottles at the distillery are bottles that can not be found in your local liquor store. These are craft bottles and reserved for members of the club. This perk alone, is well worth the price of a Flaviar membership. And, there is still more for the club membership to offer its members. I will tell you about one more of the benefits of being a club member.

Live Blending And Tasting Events:

As a member of the worlds number one whiskey club, Flaviar, you are also invited to live blending and tasting events at no extra charge. You will get to interact with the brands that you love as well as find new brands to love. You also get to meet the people behind the drinks. The one’s who craft the spirits that we love to drink. See what I mean by a gift that keeps on giving? Blending Event:

You absolutely can not go wrong when you give someone you love a gift of this caliber. Every time a package arrives at their doorstep, and they open it up to find a new and exciting whiskey, they will have no choice but to think of you. The best loving and caring person on the face of the planet.

As they sit there and sip on the samples of whiskey, or make a mixed drink the full sized bottle, they will be reminded of just how much you love them. Plus you know that they are going to find some way to repay the favor every time they get a delivery. Do not be one of those who waits until the last minute and shop for gifts. Get in on this now why it is still early. Beat the holiday rush and make your gift stand out this Christmas. With a flaviar membership.

I know that I would love it if someone gave this membership to me for Christmas. Oh well, a guy can dream can’t he?

Be Smart This Year:

There are a lot of people who think that this virus is fake. I, however am not one of them. This virus is real, and it is killing people. You add this to the flu virus that’s right around the corner, and it makes the outside world a deadly place to be. If it were me, I would stay home and shop from the safety, and comfort of my home. By doing so I am keeping my loved one’s safe from the virus as well. Now they do not have to run out the liquor store to get their favorite spirits.

It is my legal obligation to tell you, that I make a small commission from any sale that may result from the publication of this article. I am only trying to help you stay safe, as well as bring some joy to the one’s you love.

Please remember to drink responsibly, and never drink and drive. The life you save may very well be your own.

The Best Gift For Whiskey Lovers:

Do you have someone in your life that loves whiskey or bourbon? Are you struggling to find the best gift for whiskey lovers? Then struggle no more my friends, I have the perfect solution for you right here, right now. Read on to find out my recommendation.

Whiskey Dreams:Whiskey Dreams:

You may find this hard to believe, but the whiskey lovers in your life have dreams of a Flaviar Membership dancing in their heads. Anyone who is anyone, knows that a gift from the number one alcohol delivery club is the best gift for whiskey lovers.

A Flaviar Membership is so much more then just getting some alcohol delivered to the front door every quarter. Club members have so many more benefits, and we will touch base on each one of them throughout this article. Sit back and enjoy a cocktail, while I tell you about the benefits.

Benefit Number One:

The first benefit is anyone with a membership, gets a tasting box delivered to them every single quarter. They can also choose a full size bottle of their liking, the tasting box is unique in its self, that you get to try the product before you buy.

There is no other alcohol club or delivery service that offers a try before you buy program. If, you ask me, that is well worth a membership price. I would have loved to have had a service like a Flaviar Membership When I first started drinking alcohol all those years ago. Then I would not have wasted a ton of money figuring out just what I liked the best.

For those of you who have been to this site before, and have read the majority of the articles, you know that my favorite alcohol to drink is Jim Beam’s Kentucky straight Bourbon. Give me a bottle of this any day, and I am in my glory. It does not matter what it is mixed with, I love it. I will even drink Jim Beam straight, or on the rocks. ( over ice ) My favorite way to drink it, is to add some to 7-up with a bit of ice. I do not like room temp whiskey, I prefer it served cold.

Benefit Number Two:

The second best benefit of a Flaviar Membership, is the social events that the club hosts throughout the year. Members get a chance to go mingle with distillers, the people behind all the alcohol that we love so much. Meet the master craftsmen who make the whiskey, there is no extra charge for this.

Then they have tasting events, where you get to go and actually taste the whiskeys that you love, or perhaps discover new and exciting alcohol. That can become a new favorite of yours. And, again there is no extra charge for this tour as well.

Once you check this club membership out, I am positive that you will see the incredible value that there is to offer those who are brave enough to join the club. There is no other whiskey club like Flaviar, absolutely no other. In fact, this is the only whiskey club that I would recommend. There is so much that Flaviar has to offer, we could be here all day telling you about them. We just do not have enough time in the day to get through everything. If, you want to know more, check out my article get a head start on your Christmas list. Don’t worry I have it set, so you won’t lose your place on this article. You can come right back to this spot when you are done with that article.Build Your Bar:

Build Your Home Bar:

With the ability to order a full size bottle every quarter, it gives you as a member to build up your own home bar. I know, you’re saying that you can do this by simply going to the liquor store. you are absolutely right. But, the store is not going to have the members only exclusive releases. The owner of Flaviar works closely with independent bottlers to bring new whiskeys to his club members.

Whiskeys that you will never see in any stores. This gives you the chance to find something new, that no one else in the world will have in their home bar. Just one more benefit to having a Flaviar Membership.

Now, you can stress out, and run from store to store, looking for what you hope is the perfect gift. Or, you can skip stress, and the running around. The best gift for whiskey lovers is right here with a Flaviar Membership.

I promise you, that if you get this club membership for the person in your life, that loves whiskey, or any kind of alcohol. They are going to love the heck out of you. This year, break from tradition from getting them a tie, or a bathrobe. Get adventurous, and give them the gift that keeps on giving for the whole year. When they receive that package on the doorstep every quarter, they will have no choice but to think of you. If it were me getting this gift, I would be running out the door to get you something in return every quarter.

You know that your whiskey lover will do the same thing. Or at least find some other way to show their gratitude to you. If, you follow what I’m saying.

Be A Hero:

This year, be their hero. Instead of getting the same old, same old. Give those whiskey lovers you know, a Flaviar Membership. This way, with how the times are right now, you can stay home and stay safe from this virus that is still hanging around. Plus your loved ones will not have to run out to the store to buy alcohol, and they too can stay safe. I would hate for any of you to end up sick with this virus.

Stay home and stay safe this holiday season, have all of your alcohol delivered to you. ->->->CLICK HERE<-<-<-

Get A Head Start On Your Christmas List This Year:

I know that we have not hit Halloween yet, and I am already talking about Christmas. Well, the way this year has been so far, I figure that we should get a head start on Christmas this year. Who knows what is around the corner these days?

The Perfect Gift:Christmas Time:

This is going to sound a bit strange but, do you have someone that loves alcohol? Then you have found the right place to be at.

I just may have a way for you to cross off everyone on your list this year. Yes, that is right I said everyone, at least the ones that enjoy a cocktail from time to time.

What To Give Them:

Do I have you all excited about what to get them? Yes, then I suppose that I should stop beating around the bush and get right to it. This is the perfect gift to give those alcohol loving people on your list. A Flaviar membership.  Now you ask me why a membership from Flaviar, let me tell you.

I have done the research for you, and this is by far, the absolute best club membership that is out there on the market. You get so much more then alcohol delivered to the door. They have recently done an upgrade to their membership program.

In the past,when you became a member, all they sent you were tasting boxes. Now, you get the tasting boxes every quarter, plus you can get a full size bottle of your choosing sent along with the tasting boxes. Plus there is so much more that they get included with the membership.Flaviar Membership: So, I hope that will stick around for a little while longer, and let me tell you a little bit more.

What You Get:

Besides the above mentioned, included with the membership, you get to attend live tasting events. Flaviar organizes engaging live experiences directly with their network of distilleries, bars, and brands. Exclusively for members. there is also live tastings and blending events. members get to interact directly with brands that they love, as well as discover ones that they do not love. Meet the people behind the drink.

Members also get exclusive invitations to distillery tours.Where they can visit the network of the distillers free of charge. VIP treatment, plus special pricing on products, as well as a unique tasting experience at the distillery. This alone is worth the price of a membership. You will be hard pressed to find another spirits club that offers anything like the experience that is offered from a Flaviar membership..

Believe me, I have checked around myself. And I have not found a better spirits club any where. I spend a lot of time doing research on the internet. I do this so that I can save you some time, as well as some money. And, for everything that you get in a membership at Flaviar, the cost is down right reasonable, if you are asking me any ways.

Who To Give This To:

This is a pretty self explanatory, however, if you need some help deciding, I am here for you. Do you have a father or a father- in-law? Perhaps there is a brother or a sister on your Christmas list this year. Maybe a husband or a wife happens to be on that list. Look I do not know,who is on your shopping list. It does not matter who you are shopping for, if they like to drink, even if it is only once in a while that they like to drink. You owe it to yourself to give them a gift that will keep on giving for the whole year.

Why bother going from store to store, when you can stay at home,where you are perfectly safe from the outside world and this pandemic that is  still hanging on like a sore thumb. Flaviar Whiskey:Everything that you need for a happy holiday is right here in front of you.

I can even make this easier for you ->->->CLICK HERE<- It does not get any easier then this my friends. Now, here is the best part of this whole topic. If you get your friends and family a membership to this awesome spirits club, you know that they will share the alcohol with you.
