A Whole New Kind Of Whisky Bar

When I started The Dram Association in 2017 I had one key goal – to make whisky more accessible and approachable for everyone. I wanted to help build an inclusive community of whisky lovers, from all walks of life.

Well, that club now has over 650 members – and so it’s time to expand a little. We’re teaming with The Clubhouse Bar to bring you this brand new concept that we’re calling 1621. After all, every good club needs a Clubhouse!

So what is 1621? Simply put it’s our spin on a whisky bar, one that caters to whisky lovers of every kind. The two most common reasons I hear that whisky fans don’t often drink in bars are selection and price. So we’re doing something a quite a bit different to most bars.

It starts with a rotating selection of 16 whiskies, curated by myself. When one is emptied, we crack open something new. Then, between 4pm and 9pm (16:00 – 21:00) we forgo the industry standard pricing model for a completely different approach. The difference can be… impressive.

It’s my intent that this will create more opportunities to share a special dram among friends, and hopefully even create more friendships too. If you see someone drinking a whisky, why not ask them about it! You never know who you might meet over a dram of the good stuff.

 

What’s On Offer?

The selection is always changing – so we can’t guarantee these whiskies are still available. However, there’s always something delicious to explore.
