Arran 1996 for Whiskybase

26 Mar 2018 3:38 pm

Every now and then we are able to collaborate with a distillery and pick a nice cask for the Whiskybase members. This time the release is from the Arran distillery. We selected a bourbon cask from 1996.

Cask number 600 was bottled on the 15th of January 2018. The outturn of the cask is 180 bottles. It seemed only fair to give everyone the chance to be in time for the purchase of this bottle.

The bottle sold out.

We have selected another bottle for Whiskybase members. 
Sold out.

This time: Arran 1996 - bourbon barrel


Update to currency use on Whiskybase

05 Mar 2018 1:57 pm

For years we have been working with currencies on Whiskybase as we aim to support as many countries as possible. As we launched this a few years ago and never improved this it was time to take a next step. In order to create a better Whiskybase website we have updated the use of currencies on Whiskybase. Read more what we have done and how it works.

We have decided to take a 3 step approach in optimising the currency settings. This to make a smooth and easy transition into the use of currencies.
The first step was to connect with Openexchangerates.org. We receive the exchange rates on a daily base, not something completely new but it gives us the chance to improve the exchange rates even further.

After that we have created a central location to enable / disable the currency conversion for your preferred currency. 
1 location to enable the currency conversion and select the right currency.

We started with community related currencies and have move the market related currencies to the next release.
For now shoplinks and the average value of the whisky bottles can be shown in your preferred currency.

1. How do I enable a single currency?
In your profile settings you can enable the currency conversion. This can be found in: edit profile -> Localization.

Here you can enable the: convert community prices to my own currency.
Right now we have a limited amount of currencies available. More will be added in the coming months.

2. How are these currencies converted?

When you enable the community currency conversion all the shoplinks and values will be shown in your selected currency.
We have created a page where you can find the currencies used and the actual exchange rate.
This page can be found here: exchange rates

Be aware that some shoplinks might be off a bit because the particular shop is using a different currency exchange rate.
We try to give you the best possible match but these might be wrong. You can always check the original price by the link information.

The sorting on the prices is not working yet, we have decided to do that in the next release.

3. Market related currencies are not working yet?

We decided to move this to the next release as there is a bigger impact on these prices. When selling and buying in the market we need to make sure the seller and buyer are receiving the right amount and are paying the right amount. This needs a bit more work on our end.

Whiskybase maintenance update - information

12 Feb 2018 4:36 pm

On Thursday 15-02, we implemented a new setup of our servers.
This was needed to be able to store all the photos that are uploaded.
During this process we also updated some server software. It took a bit longer then expected.

The current server setup will not last long as we are migrating the complete Whiskybase setup to a new hosting provider.

Planning for this move will be released mid March. Estimated migration time will be at the end of March.
