Back in February, we brought you news on Distiller, an iPhone app that’s striving to be the ultimate whisky-drinker’s companion.

Distiller analyzes tens-of-thousands of data points across flavors, price, reputation and more, then delivers personalized whisky recommendations from around the world. It later arrived for Android too.

Today, Distiller is expanding beyond a simple recommendation engine into a fully fledged social network for whisky drinkers, where fans of a dram can hang out, swap notes, share favorites and learn about a multitude of different malts.

How it looks

You’ll now see your own dedicated activity feed alongside a whisky notes page.

And your personal profile page serves as a Twitter-like gateway to every facet of your account, including your wishlist, ratings, collection and feed. But perhaps more importantly, this is where you can see all your following/followers count. Alternatively you can also now search for specific whiskys/whiskeys, as well as specific members.

Niche social networks are nothing new, and Distiller isn’t even the first such platform for whisky drinkers, but with a focus on mobile underpinned by a lovely design, it should prove popular for malt-lovers the world over.
