This whisky vending machine in Shoreditch serves up handy pouches of booze

Ah, London life. Whether it’s rushing around on the daily commute, meeting work deadlines or answering a backlog of emails… we’re a busy bunch. Ever feel like there’s not even enough time to grab a quick scotch on the rocks?

Well, Whisky-Me claims to have found the solution to our time-pressed existence. An installation of their bespoke new vending machine has been unveiled to celebrate the first birthday of their boozy subscription service.

Throughout November and December, the vending machine will be situated in front of the Napoleon Hotel, which houses three bars, including the multi-award-winning whisky specialist bar Black Rock.

Thirsty passers-by will be able to purchase tokens from upstairs bar The Devil’s Darling to use in the machine and access one of Whisky-Me’s bespoke pouches of single malt (think of it as a twenty-first-century sporran). It’s open from 10am to 2am every day.

This all-too-convenient access to booze sounds like whisky business to us…
