The Scotch Malt Whisky Society

Work, taste and play


Typically available to Society members, the world’s rarest single cask whiskies can be discovered in a professional and entertaining whisky tasting experience.

Guests can indulge in a variety of flavours from around Scotland and beyond, as their personal SMWS Whisky Ambassador guides them through each unique whisky.

Typically lasting 30 - 90mins, Society tastings are only as formal as we are instructed, with absolute flexibility to cater for the party’s interest, timescales and the overall occasion. Whether it is a formal tasting before dinner or a more relaxed affair of pairing malts throughout the meal, your Ambassador is charged to entertain and impress.

And there are no limits… We can also dispatch our Ambassadors to venues out with Society locations - conference receptions, restaurants, private yachts or living rooms.

As Whisky Magazine’s Independent bottler of the Year 2014, the highest quality is assured. Furthermore, Society whiskies (over 200 rare casks at any time) and Ambassadors will be hand-picked for each occasion.

Simply select your preferred tasting experience below and each guest will receive 3 - 5 whiskies with tasting notes and a memorable experience.
