App of the Week – Distiller
Published on March 30, 2016
Look, even Geeks love to drink. It’s why techies invented gadgets like Coravin and why history and pop culture buffs around the world unite every week for pub trivia.
Sometimes the intersection of tech and alcohol can make magic, like the Distiller app, the coolest way to browse the liquor store without taking your eyes off your smartphone.
Originally created as a whiskey recommendation app, Distiller has now expanded to include rum, brandy, tequila, and mescal. Whether you’re looking to get another glass at the bar, add a centerpiece to your liquor cabinet, or find the perfect gift for your choosiest friend (here’s looking at you, Reed), you can use Distiller’s sophisticated search criteria – including flavor profile, price point, and location of origin – to find the perfect bottle for any occasion.
In addition to searching, you can also use Distiller as a sort of little black book for booze: Browse and submit reviews from users and experts, keep track of your purchases, set up a wishlist, and even log your tasting notes using its simple, intuitive interface.
It’s no wonder why Distiller won a 2015 Webby award for “Best Food and Drink.” It’s fun, practical, and easy to use. And, best of all, since it’s available for free for iOS and Android devices, no Geek ever needs to go thirsty again!
