Scotch Malt Whisky Society “New monthly Unfiltered” – Scotch Whisky News

We’re excited to announce a new online Unfiltered magazine, exclusively for members of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society. 

Unfiltered has been through several incarnations since the Society started out in 1983, growing from a short newsletter written mostly by Pip to the full-colour 44-page printed magazine delivered to members four times a year. Now we are refocussing all of our efforts on creating a new digital Unfiltered for members every month.

We have invested in a new platform that helps us make the transition from our beautiful printed publication to something that allows our creativity to shine on any digital device. And what we’re saving from no longer printing and distributing Unfiltered is being reinvested to bring you the best whisky-related content available anywhere, more frequently, with more use of multimedia and with an emphasis as always on top quality and high-end design and production values.

The August issue of Unfiltered will be the last one in its current printed format, and today we’re delighted to unveil the same magazine on our new digital platform, hosted on We will now send you a new digital magazine every month, as well us uploading stories regularly between issues. Call it ‘constant content’, with a compelling mix of whisky news, Society insights, member stories, distillery profiles, interviews with leading figures from the wider whisky world, videos to bring these to life  and much, much more. From September onwards, we will be implementing a member log-in system. You’ll have to be part of the Society to access our beautifully designed monthly whisky magazine.

Apart from anything else, our new digital publication gives you the opportunity to get more involved in what we’re presenting and for you to have your say. We hope you are impressed with what you see with your first online Unfiltered, and as always we welcome your feedback.

Slainte and happy reading,

David Ridley
