There are four main points that define Whisky Wednesdays:

  • Whisky Wednesday deals are only available to current active members of the W Club
  • Whisky Wednesday deals are limited to a handful of carefully chosen products, and only a limited number of each product will be available to all members of the W Club
  • Purchase is limited to one bottle of any given whisky per customer – you may buy multiple different products but no more than one of the same product
  • Whisky Wednesday deals are available for 24-hours only

Whisky Wednesday deals can only be accessed by active W Club members. If you’re an active W Club member, you’ll receive a ‘sale now open’ email on Wednesday morning that’ll send you directly to The W Club Members Offers page on

All Whisky Wednesday deals are available for Click & Collect free of charge from any of The Whisky Shop stores.

Once the allocated number of offer bottles are gone, they’re gone, and no more will be put on sale at the offer price.

Yes! The W Club Memberships purchased online for personal use (not as a gift) will be auto-activated on completion of purchase, so you’ll be able to sign into your account and access all the exciting benefits of the club right away.

We’ll post your pre-activated membership card out along with your first copy of Whiskeria magazine via Royal Mail, and these should arrive within 2-3 working days. Once you have your membership card you’ll be able to access in-store offers at The Whisky shop too.

As a member of the W Club you are entitled to four complimentary copies of Whiskeria magazine posted direct to your door each year.

Magazines are released quarterly (spring/summer/autumn/winter) and the arrival of a new issue is usually announced via The W Club social media channels (follow @mywclub for all the latest news).

If you think you’ve missed out on an edition of Whiskeria, please first:

  • Check that your membership has not expired – you can do so by signing into your Account page.
  • Ensure that your delivery details are up to date. Again, you can check and update this on your Account page.

If your account is showing as active with the correct address and your magazine still missing, please contact us on [email protected] or call +44 (0)141 427 2919 and one of our team will look into this for you.
