Searching For Spirits

Using Distiller's Search tool you can search our database of tens of thousands of unique spirits. It doesn't matter if you're on your phone on our website, using one of our mobile apps, or sitting at your computer. You can search our database whether you're logged in or not. 

Searching On Distiller.com

  4. If you want to filter your results by the style of spirit, or the country it's from, click the 'Filtering By' button. You can also choose whether or not to show Official Content, which is content created by Distiller's staff, User Content, which is content created by Distiller Users, or All Content, which will show both. 
  5. The default sort criteria for Search is by Community Rating. You can also sort by Popularity, which is the total number of ratings, and alphabetically. 
  6. When you click on a Search result you will be able to hit the Back button and return to the same Search results.

Searching Using The Distiller App

  1. Open the Distiller app and tap the Search button at the bottom of the screen.
  2. By default you will be viewing the All Spirits section, but if you'd like to only view a single type of spirit, tap the glass icon in the top left of the screen with arrows pointing in two directions. You can change your spirit type there. 
  3. Begin typing to automatically get Search results. Every time you pause typing, the app will conduct another Search. 
  4. You can use Sort (Stacked up and down arrows), Cost (money icon), Country (globe icon), Style (glass icon) and Content Type (Funnel icon) to refine your search results. 
  5. You can also use the barcode scan tool (to the right of the search bar) to scan the barcode on the back of a bottle. If we have the barcode for the bottle you're searching in our database, we'll take you to the bottle page for that bottle. Otherwise it will use the search term associated with the barcode you scanned to give you several possible options.
