The Summerton Club; Unique Aged Spirits Delivered To Your Door

How would you like to receive unique fantastically aged spirits direct to your door? Spirits that you cannot find yourself in the supermarket? Well now you can thanks to The Summerton Club. 

The Summerton Club


The Summerton Club was created by Daniel who wanted to get his dad just that, unique special bottles delivered to his door every month with the element of surprise and excitement at what you would be receiving. After searching everywhere he found nothing, instead of getting his dad the premium spirits subscription he had to go out and find the bottles himself. Daniel asked around and found that many friends had struggled to find a good gift for their dads, and that they would love to gift their dad’s a craft aged-spirits subscription. They particularly liked the idea that someone would do all the hard work finding these masterpieces and getting them to their dad, whilst they got the praise for the wonderful gift. 

That’s when Daniel decided to create an alcohol subscription club and The Summerton Cub was born in January 2018! They mainly focus on whiskies, brandies and rums. 

The Summerton Club offers its members their Bottle Of Month. They work with master distillers to bring their members bottles not available in the UK.  

I feel so incredibly lucky to be able to share with you Octobers bottle of the month, which was sent to us to review. This is the Mackmyra Gruvgold Swedish Single Malt Whisky 70cl.

There is a story behind this whisky and in brief eight friends met each bringing a bottle of whisky with them to share, their conversation turned to the fact that there were no Swedish distilleries around. That night they decided to create a Swedish whisky. Not being master distillers themselves they decided to open up their work to the public and hosted regular tastings and thus produced Mackmyra. 

Gruvgold meaning gold from the mine is a wonderfully smooth Swedish Single Malt Whisky, aged in a variety of small casks, including Oloross, Bourbon, Sherry and Swedish oak, 50m below the ground in the Bodas mine. 

When my bottle arrived I was excited to see what awaited me. It came very well packaged to ensure no damage had come to the bottle or the packaging. The Mackmyra Gruvgold is presented in its own case that slides out to the side to reveal the gorgeous glass bottle. I also like that you receive information with every bottle; the story behind the spirit.

On the back of the box you will also find some information about the whisky. The bottle design itself is clear glass allowing the golden colour of the whisky to shine through, it also has flecks of gold pattern on the bottle.

This whisky has a taste like no other. I have never tasted a whisky with such unique flavour. It is quite fruity with a touch of vanilla and a hint of spice, it has quite an earthy taste to it. It really is exquisite.
