Join an enlightened whisky movement

Being a member of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society means having an open-mind, a thirst forknowledge, and a spirit of adventure and curiosity. We believe in a different approach to whisky, celebrating the flavours in the bottle and not where it comes from. Join us if you’re ready to challenge conventions and explore new possibilities.

We bring whisky lovers from around the world together and guide them on their whisky journey. You can choose how to share in our single cask adventures by adding tasting tickets, drams and bottles, or our SMWS welcome pack to your membership.

Scotch Malt Whisky Society Membership offers many other pleasures and privileges including:

  • Exclusive access to several new whiskies and other bottles from the monthly publication Outturn

  • Access to an extensive tasting programme where you’ll meet like-minded whisky lovers

  • Member prices at all SMWS partner bars worldwide
    (outside Switzerland)

  • Free access to our monthly online whisky magazine»Unfiltered”

  • Society Tasting Kit and membership card



The only way to get exclusive access to our new monthly Outturn of around 20 exquisite cask strength, single cask whiskies is through Society membership. The gift that keeps on giving with a constantly evolving selection of intriguing single malts, straight from a single cask to explore.

Discover our Single Malts at our Members’ Tastings and partner bars

Members’ tastings are a great opportunity to get to know the Society’s bottlings. Being a member of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society means joining a club of kindred spirits. Visiting our events and partner bars around the world is a great way to experience the Society.


Settle back with Unfiltered, our monthly online whisky magazine for Society members, with the best whisky writing and photography delivered in a beautifully designed format to their door four times a year.

Your key to the treasures of the Society

Your Society Membership starts with our curiously layered exclusive Society Tasting Kit, with its three carefully selected 10cl single cask, single malt whiskies, plus other Society goodies. These will give a taste not only of the Society as a whole, but the delectable single cask single malts we offer. The Membership box also protects the beautifully unassuming Society Membership card. From access to an unparalleled selection of single cask single malt whiskies, on which we’re the leading authority, to Swisswide whisky tasting events, this little card unlocks the very best the Society has to offer.

Come on in, the whisky’s lovely!
