New features alert! 🚨

Picks has changed the way people review spirits and wine, and we’ve just made it even better with these two new features.

Photo Enabled Tasting Reviews

With the ability to add images to a review, you can now share not only your tasting notes and scores with your followers, now you can let the community know what you think with a picture!

Additionally, your images are added to the search results for that bottle in an upcoming app update. Tasting images with the most community likes will take the desired top position on bottle search results.

Snap a picture of that special bottle of whiskey, or anything else from your screen to use it along side your tasting notes. Perhaps a pic from that distillery tour, or maybe that barrel room tasting experience!

Barcode Scanning

We’ve made it even easier to find and review bottles of whisk(e)y, rum, tequila, brandy and wine within our Picks app with a new feature for scanning bottles.

To use it, open the app and go to the search screen and you will find a new barcode icon on the right side. Once the new barcode scanning camera screen opens then point the camera at a bottle and wait for a second. If the barcode is found in our database, the app will automatically show you the matching bottle for you to dive into.

If you’re at a grocery store or distillery or winery, simply aim the camera at the barcode on the bottle, and quickly get detailed information about the aggregated taste notes, taste profile, average score, and more including cost per bottle and expert ratings.

Over 30,000 barcodes have been registered in the app today and our team will continue to add more. If you scan an unregistered bottle, rest assured that our team will be alerted and will get to work adding it soon.
