Join the Society
The Scotch Malt Whisky Society is the world’s leading club for whisky lovers. Since our beginnings in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1983, we’ve been on a mission to uncover the finest single malt whisky in the world. The purpose? To enjoy it together – both through online and in-person tasting events across the USA hosted by our team of whisky experts.
Every month we release a new selection of at least 20 single cask whiskies, hand-picked by our Tasting Panel in Scotland for being the finest whisky available. Society members have the unique opportunity to order these whiskies through our website, taste them and share their own discoveries with fellow members through our guided virtual tastings on YouTube and Facebook.
As we continue to spend more time at home, there has never been a better time to join The Scotch Malt Whisky Society and its 30,000 members for the whisky journey of a lifetime!
Explore new flavours, regions and distilleries from our expansive selection of 20-30 single cask whiskies released each month.
Take your whisky knowledge to the next level with our monthly digital members magazine, Unfiltered and exclusive educational content at The Society News.
Make new whisky-loving friends as we share our discoveries together through weekly virtual tasting events on our YouTube channel.
Access our private Members’ Rooms in Edinburgh, Glasgow and London and visit bars serving up Society whisky across the United States.
