Whiskybase is organized around whiskies, distilleries, bottlers and brands.
- A whisky page lists all information from that whisky.
- A distillery page lists all of the releases from that distillery.
- A bottler page lists all of the releases of a bottler.
- A brand page lists all the whiskies released within that brand name
You can browse the database in many ways from the whiskies page. Just choose an aspect you are interested in, and then start narrowing down the results until you discover releases you're interested in!
The search option is located in the upper left hand part of every Whiskybase page. Simply enter the word(s) you would like to search for and then hit return/enter on your keyboard. This will search all whiskies, distilleries, bottlers and brands.
The default search is be set to Everything, but notice that your search results include filters for Bottler, Brand, Vintage, Bottled, For sale and Rating. Select one or more of these filters to narrow your search results to just that category.
