    Whiskey Database

    I am looking to develop a whiskey based app, but I cannot find a complete database of whiskeys available. Does anyone know if one exists?

    Very, very doubtful. What sort of an app? Untappd style?

    Yes, similar to that. There seem to be apps out there, but none that are social-based.

    Untappd didn't use some master beer DB; the social aspect is itself the DB. Any user can add a beer at any time.

    You would use a database so when you go to add something you drank, it would come up as a choice (a pre-populated list). It just makes it easier to use, then having to manually add a whiskey each time.

    Don't gotta add it manually each time. One person has to add each bottling manually once. Obviously you'd want a decent list to start but the social nature of the app would guarantee that the list would grow organically.

    This is how Untappd works; just the other day I added a new beer... My buddy who was drinking with me just had to check it in.

    The list at Proof66.com looks pretty extensive. That would be a good start.

    I tend to research Scotch Whisky more than bourbon, so I use this:

    Do we get badges for broken Glencairns?
