Additional Details On Member Protocol:
Please read this carefully when you join.
When acquiring whiskies through us you do for investment purposes (we are not a delivery or messenger or gifting service). Please note that we are offering them to you as part of a long term investment plan (at least a year. Often more. we evaluate the timelines regularly).
We cast a wide network across the US (and sometimes worldwide!) to find the whiskies and do extensive research/negotiation on your behalf. This is a time consuming but highly lucrative and rewarding process that we love to be able to provide to you.
We are not a liquor store and we are not a delivery/messenger or gifting service. We do not keep inventory and cannot deliver whiskies at short notice. Most of our members prefer for us to store their whiskies. If you would like to store your investments yourself, we would need schedule this in advance at a mutually convenient time (AFTER we have received the whiskies we have ordered for your investment portfolio) where cost of delivery is passed on to the investor/club member.
We usually advise that you get whiskies through us for investment purposes. If the goal is to gift someone a whiskey or to consume it, we recommend using our “hard to find whiskies” advise service which is available once per quarter mentioned in your perks above in point #6. (You are responsible for purchasing whiskies you want to give as gifts or personal consumption based on our advise tips covered in point #6. Once per quarter).
This is because we are first and foremost an investment club – and are not able to just deliver whiskies at a moment’s notice. This whiskies that we recommend investing in are highly sought after whiskies and take time to acquire, especially when we are making large volume searches for all our VIP members. Note that all purchases made through our network and through our advise are non refundable
When our members act on the hot investment tips we give them we order these whiskies so it can take several weeks to reach us. Most members ask us to store their investment whiskies because they will need our help selling them in the long term future.
For the ones that ask that their whiskies be delivered to them, we are more than happy to do that. That said, we can only do that once we receive the whiskies that are shipped to us from various resources (US and Worldwide).
It can take several weeks (sometimes months) for them to arrive. Once they arrive, you will receive notification. Until then, we ask that you be patient. If your goal was to gift these purchases on a certain date, we would need to know that prior to your purchase so we can advise you accordingly and ask you to use our gifting tip instead (which is advise only. We don’t acquire those for you). If you mention your gifting intentions AFTER your purchase we cannot always guarantee that the whiskies will arrive to us by a certain date. In such a case you agree to abide by our protocols and wait for our deliveries to arrive.
In some cases, provided you tell us upfront that you plan to consume these whiskies, we may advise you to get the whiskies from other sources as we are an investment portfolio creation service (among other perks mentioned above). We are not a gifting service.
Finally, when you acquire an investment through us, we send you a certificate of ownership which is signed by you and Whiskey Stories. In signing this certificate, you also agree to follow our member protocols and rules!
With that let’s get investing!
Team Whiskey Stories
