Scotch Malt Whisky Society “WHAT’S ON AT THE SOCIETY” – Scotch Whisky News

As we enter another week of lockdown, we’re starting to get into the swing of connecting together online as we all stay at home. To help all our members stay in touch with the Society, and each other, we’ve got another busy week coming up in our virtual Members’ Room. Check out what’s coming up.

BRINGING THE FESTIVAL TO YOU!

Normally in May we’d be out and about, meeting members from all over the world at the whisky festivals of Speyside, the Highlands, Campbeltown and Islay. Since we can’t be there in person, we’re bringing the festival to you. We have celebratory bottlings, virtual pub sessions, music, quizzes and special tastings – take a look at the full programme and see how you can get involved.

OUR FIRST VIRTUAL TASTINGS STAT THIS WEEK

If you bought one of our Virtual Tasting Discovery Packs last month, the wait is almost over – the live tastings start this week! We’ll be hosting screenings with local ambassadors across the UK and Europe, so you can join the one nearest to you. Remember to check the start time and platform for your chosen tasting, then get your glasses and Discovery Pack ready to join in. You can even download and print our exclusive tasting mat, and join in the conversation using #alltogethersmws

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

We had a great time celebrating the Spirt of Speyside Festival on Friday with the launch of our first virtual pub session. Streamed on our UK Facebook and YouTube page, members got together at the ‘bar’ to share a dram and chat with whisky writer Hans Offringa and Glen Moray ambassador Iain Allan, talk whisky and wildlife with expert Nick Baker, and enjoy music and a good old pub quiz.

If you missed out, don’t worry – you can join us this Friday, 8 May to raise a toast to the Highland Whisky Festival – featuring whisky legend Richard Paterson from Whyte & Mackay, and the Whisky Bard himself, Robin Laing. The festivities kick off at 8pm.
