Drammers Club was founded in 2013 when the top whiskey buyers at Astor Wines & Spirits in NYC would get together to share rare whiskies and other spirits. Today with nearly 700 members, it has grown into arguably the biggest whisk(e)y club in New York City, with new chapters forming in Los Angeles, London, Paris, Warsaw, Tel Aviv, and Mexico City, and an expanded focus on mezcal. The club gets together every month to share great spirits, including exciting bottles the club sources from auctions and private collectors the world over, and distillery-only releases brought by our guest speakers.
