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.
