The Scotch Malt Whisky Society

Since we were formed in 1983, we’ve believed in doing things differently. As unconventional whisky experts we seek out whisky in its purest form, prize flavour above everything else and give each bottling a curious name. We’re united and constant in our passion – to share the world’s best whiskies and to bring them to life.

The exploration of flavour and sharing our discoveries is what we’re all about. Our members and guests can enjoy exclusive access to whiskies hand-picked by our expert Tasting Panel, from over 150 distilleries in Scotland and beyond. We bottle them at cask strength and offer a constant variety. How you drink them is entirely up to you.

We don’t just bring you amazing whisky – we bring our members and guests together to share their passion, at our venues, tasting events, festivals, and our network of partner bars around the world. That makes the SMWS the perfect place to start out on your whisky journey, or take it to the next level.

Our Glasgow venue has a dedicated whisky tasting room that can seat up to 10, which is also be available for private tastings. The Members’ Room serves a bar food menu of snacks and tapas, with space to host up to 16 people for private dinners. Exclusive use events of the venue are also available.
