Macadoodles and Announce Partnership to Bring Whiskey Reviews to Retail Customers


Whiskey Raiders and Macadoodles are teaming up to bring whiskey reviews to retail shoppers.

The large midwest liquor chain will incorporate Whiskey Raiders’ reviews in its whiskey and bourbon aisles

December 13, 2021 — Large midwest liquor retailer, Macadoodles, has announced a partnership with popular whiskey review site,, which will incorporate the site’s reviews in its whiskey/bourbon aisles to enhance the customers’ experience. In every aisle, there will be a QR code linking to Whiskey Raiders’ archive so that customers can see how the experts rate a particular whiskey before purchasing it.

With over 2,000 whiskey, bourbon and scotch reviews on its website, Whiskey Raiders is the single largest whiskey review source on the internet.

“It can be intimidating to purchase a new whiskey if you are not familiar with the brand,” said Andrew Eisbrouch, COO of Whiskey Raiders. “This partnership will provide Macadoodles’ customers with an in-store resource that can help them experiment with items out of their comfort zone.”

“We have a large group of customers who are enthusiasts for the ever-growing assortment of whiskeys and bourbons,” said Roger Gildehaus, founder and president of Macadoodles. “Leveraging technology to help customers learn more about available products will further enhance our renowned Customer Service.”

Macadoodles will be posting the Whiskey Raiders’ QR Codes immediately in stores. Whiskey Raiders will be expanding this initiative to other liquor retailers over the next few months, as well.
