Distiller Webby Awards

Last week was an exciting one for Distiller, the whiskey curation and recommendation service that we've been lucky enough to work on for our friends over at Votiv.

On Tuesday the Distiller Android App went live, a mere two months after the iOS version hit the App Store.

Then on Thursday we learned that Distiller has been nominated for a Webby in the Guides/Ratings/Reviews category. And while you should certainly go give your vote to Distiller, it's worth nothing that the other nominees include the likes of Metacritic, Fandango, and CNET. Distiller's up there with some pretty good company.

And finally on Friday the Distiller team was in New York City for a live-streaming, hour-long spot on the Engadget Podcast. Whether you're interested in whiskey or the tech that powers Distiller's recommendation algorithm, the podcast covers it all (and they even left time to sample a few choice bottles).

Mikael and the Distiller team came to us a few months back with the simple premise that whiskey should be more approachable and that design and technology could help. Two apps and a web platform later and it's pretty clear that Distiller is onto something great and we couldn't be more excited to see where they go next.
