Caskers is a bit like like other sale-of-the-day sites and curated shops like Gilt Taste, but for spirits, featuring a selection of products, each available for sale for a limited amount of time. The spirits are unusual — like a Washington-state gin made with dried Fuji apples and hops — and often award-winning.
And if you're itching to taste before you buy, they will soon be introducing Caskers Tastings, which will ship 3 to 5 sample bottles of spirits to members each month.
Caskers is currently invite-only. And remember that state regulations for the shipping of alcohol apply, so look for any restrictions on the product information before ordering.
