The Scotch Malt Whisky Society is pleased to announce that Jenna Elie has joined our team on the West Coast! Based in Los Angeles, California, Jenna has been an advocate for The Society since becoming a member in 2017. In 2018 she worked with our team on a part-time basis, hosting tasting events in California and authoring educational content for all Society members to enjoy. Now as a full-time member of our team, Jenna will pick up where she left off; sharing her passion for The Society and single cask whisky throughout the West Coast and beyond.

“I am thrilled to be joining the extraordinary team at The Scotch Malt Whisky Society on a full-time basis. I have been able to immerse myself in the vast world of whisky and spirits, learning and developing many assets that I can’t wait to share with the incredible members of this society. The love and care that has been shown for our members by the team here in California does not go unnoticed, and I am lucky to be able to build on the solid foundations. I have missed sharing my deep love of this industry with you all, and I can’t wait to share a dram and catch up with the many of you who make this society so special.” -Jenna Elie

With Jenna’s arrival, we would also like to extend our deepest gratitude to Brenna McHugh and Clarke Boyer and who have been fantastic in their role as part-time Society ambassadors to the West Coast. Brenna and Clarke have been instrumental in driving the growth of our community, which continues to open the door for new member experiences, exciting spirits to enjoy and more opportunities to share our love for single cask whisky together. Both Brenna and Clarke are excited to be pursuing their respective careers while remaining contributing members of The Society in California. Please join us in wishing them all the best for their bright futures ahead!
