Joining the Deer Park Whiskey Club will give you exclusive access to unique and rare whiskies to taste and purchase, and give you the chance to enter lotteries to purchase even rarer, highly coveted bottles.
How It Works
Throughout the year, you will receive our ever-revolving list of “Club Offerings” whiskey bottles. This is not a subscription service, so you won’t end up with bottles you don’t like. You can taste most “Club Offerings” whiskies before you buy.
Every bottle purchased from our “Club Offerings” earns you lottery tickets. Approximately every $50 spent earns you a ticket. (Bottles $1-$49 = 1 ticket; bottles $50-$99 = 2 tickets; bottles $100-$149 = 3 tickets).
Most weeks in a year, we hold a lottery for a select few rare bottles. We put all the tickets into one big pot. If your ticket is drawn, you can choose to purchase a bottle from the lottery items. If your ticket is not drawn, you keep your tickets to play another day.
Some Examples of Our "Club Offerings"
What Our Members Can Expect...
This club is a community of whiskey drinkers, new and experienced, who want to expand their knowledge, try new things and have access to rare items. And, most importantly, we want the club to taste unique, rare, and fine whiskey!
The Deer Park Whiskey Club makes finding and securing a rare bottle like Pappy, Weller 12 yr, and Yamazaki 18 yr an exciting, social, and rewarding experience. When you purchase whiskey from our “Club Offerings” list, you earn lottery tickets.
We hold a lottery most weeks of the year with a curated selection of rare, handpicked bottles. You can place as many tickets into a lottery as you like in order to increase your chances of being drawn first (or at all). If your ticket is drawn, you may purchase a bottle from what is left and forfeit all your tickets. If your ticket is never drawn, you keep your tickets to play in another lottery.
Club members also enjoy a host of other benefits, including private tastings, discounts, and priority access to seasonal tasting events.
What Makes Our Club Different?
We are not a subscription service, so you won’t end up with bottles you don’t like. On the contrary, we offer you opportunities to taste new whiskies before you buy, as well as learn about the processes that make each whiskey unique.
Club members are encouraged to make private tasting appointments at our store in Aptos. Not only will members benefit from tasting new whiskies, but Cheyne, the curator of the club, will learn their preferences and present new whiskies as he learns about them.
The club is free to join, and there is no obligation to buy.
