Craft Whiskey 

Perhaps you’ve always considered yourself a whiskey lover, savoring the way one sip instantly warms you up and melts away the day. Maybe you’re a newcomer to the world of whiskey and you’re captivated by its rich amber colors and how its aroma makes your nose tingle. If you’re ready to deepen your connection with this comforting spirit, then it’s time to explore the world of craft whiskey. Our rare and artisanal bottles come from distilleries with histories as intricate and dynamic as the liquor they produce. You won’t find these brands of whiskey for sale at your commercial bottle shop. 

You might be wondering what exactly makes whiskey “craft.” There are other names for the product that help narrow it down, including “small batch” and “grain-to-glass.” These phrases encapsulate the essence of craft whiskey, made using minimal processing, local ingredients, and ethical labor. 

Another defining feature is that craft alcohol is only made in limited quantities. Authorities have tried to create official numbers around what qualifies as “limited.” Nobody can quite agree on whether it’s 100,000 gallons per year or just 25,000 gallons per year. But, one thing is clear: if it’s craft, there isn’t much of it out there. So when you pick up a bottle from us, you’ve picked up a rare treasure.

If you can easily trace every place your choice has been, from crop to cup, it’s likely craft whiskey. So, for consumers who are committed to supporting small businesses and keeping legacies alive: our small-batch bottles belong on your shelf. 

We think it’s important to get to know the faces and families behind the products we carry, learn about the businesses we’re supporting, and share their stories with our customers. You’ll feel a connection to every bottle you purchase at Curiada.com. Shop today and make each sip more meaningful.

Whiskey vs Whisky

Is it whiskey or whisky? Depending on where you enjoy your libations, you might see different spellings of this soothing, dark spirit. In the U.S. and Ireland, it’s whiskey — everywhere else, it’s whisky

Alcohol connoisseurs have different theories on why the discrepancy exists. Some say it simply comes down to regional spelling. Others say the spelling indicates where the spirit was distilled. What we do know is that whiskey comes from the Gaelic word uisce (sometimes written uisge), meaning water. And that uisce has similar origins to the Germanic and Slavic words for water, too. 

Before humans started consuming spirits for pleasure, we used it for medicinal purposes. That’s right — booze saved lives. So, no matter how you spin it or sip it, around the world, folks feel that whiskey is as vital to our survival as H2O. Maybe you feel that way, too. If you do, you’re in the right place. We don’t care how you spell it — order whiskey online that will inspire you.

Our Rare Craft Whiskey

If you frequent craft cocktail bars, at some point, a barkeep probably told you about a drink with their proprietary barrel pick spirit. They presented you with the bottle and shared an epic story of visiting the distillery and designing the label. 

Barrel picks are becoming increasingly popular amongst bars wanting to offer patrons an exclusive sipping experience. At Curiada, we offer barrel picks, too. And here, you don’t just get one drink with this rare elixir — you can buy the whole bottle. But, what exactly does barrel pick mean? 

When you see a spirit with the “barrel pick” designation on our site, that tells you that we selected a single cask from a distillery, and purchased the entire thing. Every cask creates its own distinct flavor profile, and every batch comes out slightly different from the last. So we purchase a one-of-a-kind whiskey that will never be replicated.  

Only our customers will get to experience the specific notes, aromas, and colors created by aging liquor in that very cask, from that barrel pick. Think of it like the craftest of craft alcohol. It’s not just from a small batch — it’s the only batch in the world that tastes just like this one. If you take pride in stocking your home bar with truly one-of-a-kind spirits, shop our selection of barrel picks.

Our limited edition bottles don’t stop at barrel picks. At Curiada, we’re always on the hunt for exceptional and distinctive bottles. It’s our mission to bring you whiskey for sale online that you might never find at your local liquor store. In fact, many distilleries give us first access to new products before releasing them to larger markets. 

If you like to be that friend whose bar is always stocked with products that make people say, “I’ve never seen this before,” shop Curiada.com. And if you think you’ve tried every whiskey there is, well, first off, we’re impressed. And second, you might just find something you’ve never seen before. Keep your curiosity alive and your glass chilled, we have uncommon and unique spirits ready for discerning whiskey connoisseurs. 

Identifying Craft Whiskey 

When you buy from Curiada, you can be certain you’re getting a craft bottle. Still, there are ways to identify great small-batch whiskeys at any watering hole or liquor shop. Here are distinctive qualities that set craft whiskey apart:

  • It’s made mostly by hand
  • It is distilled and bottled at the same location
  • The ingredients are locally sourced
  • The labor is locally hired
  • It has limited ingredients (sugar, yeast, water, and grain are all that’s needed)
  • It’s only made in limited quantities

Corn, barley, rye, and wheat are the four common whiskey grains. Each grain is known to create a distinct flavor profile and appearance:

  • Corn is known for its sweetness
  • Rye can add a bit of spice
  • Barley-heavy recipes will have a biscuit-like flavor
  • Wheat-based whiskey might taste like honey

Some distilleries use a combination of grains — known as the mash bill — in their whiskeys, allowing them to create unique combinations of notes and aromas.

5 of Our Most Popular Whiskeys

At Curiada, we search high and low to bring in an eclectic selection of craft whiskey for every drinking style and flavor preference. Narrowing down our favorites would be a formidable challenge. But, our customers have made their opinions known through their shopping carts and repeat purchases. Here are five of our most popular whiskeys:

Buffalo Trace Straight Bourbon Whiskey

This rugged bottle will look right at home on any Western-themed bar. Its contents are as bold as its appearance — it didn’t win the top spot at the prestigious Scotch Whiskey Masters competition for nothing. With a full-bodied flavor profile boasting notes of toffee, brown sugar, and spices, all complemented by a surprisingly smoky finish, Buffalo Trace might just be the newest addition to your collection.  

Monkey Shoulder Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

Perfect for the adventurous palate, Monkey Shoulder will invigorate your taste buds with its notes of orange zest, honey, vanilla, and oak. The traditional and sturdy bottle is a nod to the rich heritage of this scotch, which comes to us from one of the oldest whiskey-making families in the world. Its intricate and lively flavor makes this whiskey shine as a solo sipper, but it also pairs perfectly with a simple mixer like ginger beer or soda.

RY3 Whiskey Rum Cask Finished

Experience a nuanced flavor journey with this complex blend. As its name promises, it’s a fusion of three whiskeys, which creates a layered profile with notes ranging from warm and earthy to bright and fruity. The blend is aged in a rum cask to add subtle hints of spice and caramel, and the final product will satisfy curious and astute drinkers. Crafted by a startup, RY3 embodies the spirit of pioneering and innovation.  

Kikori Japanese Rice Whiskey

This stout and stately bottle beckons you to sit down, stay a while, and connect with friends — both old and new. As you sip it, you’ll want to share anecdotes as vibrant and rich as the whiskey itself. Aged in American and French Limousin oak as well as Sherry casks, Kikori Japanese Rice Whiskey tells an international story as it hits your taste buds. Warm notes of toasted rice, almond, and vanilla complement fruit and spices for a soothing and sumptuous flavor. Free of common allergens, this whiskey is also an optimal choice for drinkers with sensitive digestions.

Larceny Small Batch Bourbon

Feeling rebellious? Grab a bottle of Larceny Small Batch Bourbon. Inspired by an unruly treasury agent who’d sneak precious bottles for himself during prohibition, this 92-proof whiskey packs a punch. Its flavor profile, like its bottle shape, defies any expectations you might have about whiskey. With notes of caramel, vanilla, toasted oak, and fruit, Larceny will awaken taste buds you didn’t know you had. The replacement of wheat for rye is what gives this bourbon its unique taste. It’s perfect for an old-fashioned or neat on the rocks
