From sand-removing powder to whisky subscriptions, Dragons’ Den has delved into the business world. Here’s how to buy ‘Whisky Me’…
It is the BBC series which showcases entrepreneurs, as they fight their case, hoping for investors to become a stakeholder into their business idea.
The line-up of Dragons need to be won over by each business owner – or see at least some potential in each pitch presented to them – in order to invest.
So, here’s how to buy the whisky subscription, which was aired on the May 14, 2021, episode. We also explored the Whisky Me firm.
What is ‘Whisky Me’?
Whisky Me is a single malt whisky delivery service, with each drink in a pouch which can easily fit through a letterbox.
Subscriptions can be bought to get a monthly dram of single malt scotch whisky or world whisky to the buyer’s door.
It has been “curated from the planet’s best distilleries“, with each subscription given the flexibility to cancel at any time.
The business also has a recycling programme, meaning that if you send them back 12 empty pouches, Whisky Me sends you a free filled one.

Whisky Me on Dragon’s Den
Co-founder of Whisky Me, Tristan Stephenson, first began his pitch by offering the Dragons a taste of the drink itself.
The whisky pouch firm, also run by his business partner Thomas Aske, received offers from Deborah Meaden, Peter Jones and Tej Lalvani.
Tristan and Thomas were offered a £75,000 investment for a 15% share, split equally between all three Dragons.
It reportedly marks the sixth time three dragons have shared an investment, and the first a whisky brand has been successful on the show.
