Vending machines filled with overpriced candy bars or fizzy drinks are nice and all, but we could all use something a little stronger. Well, this machine in London, with its selection of whiskies, is offering us just that. Installed on November 1st in front of the Napoleon Hotel by Liverpool Street station, the vending machine will dispense pouches of whisky until the end of December.
The vending machine will contain a variety of single-malt whiskies. The flavors have been chosen to represent the diversity of single malts, including whiskies from distilleries like Macallan, Royal Lochnagar, and Aberfeldy. To use the machine, you’ll have to purchase $11 tokens from the hotel bar, which is open from 5:00 PM onward, and tokens can be used in the machine any time between 10:00 AM and 2:00 AM.
The vending machine was installed to celebrate the first anniversary of Whisky-Me, a subscription service that ships whiskies from all over the world to members’ doors in the UK. The machine is part of the company’s broader effort to help whisky shed its stuffy, serious personality, and lend it a more fun attitude.
