Matching the numbers to the Distilleries
A frequently asked question is "How do I match the numbers to the distilleries?"
Under the arrangement the Society has with distillers the Society undertakes not to put the distiller's name on the bottle, and not to publish a list which matches the numbers to the distilleries. However the Society map, together with the tasting notes, allow members to identify where the whisky comes from, without too much effort, and is a good way to learn a bit about Scotland.
A private whisky web site in Denmark (Whisky Portal), however, has published this list, and as the site contains useful whisky information for our members we have created a link to it off our own web site.
To find the site do the following:
Select "Links" (in the green area at the top of the page, second line, last word)
Under the heading "Whisky Sites" click on "Whisky Portal"
This brings up the Whisky portal disclaimer page. Click on the underlined words "Whisky portal"
On the left hand side of the page which then appears is a list. Click on "SMWS Codes" and the list of distilleries and codes will appear.
If you need any further assistance, please contact the Society direct.
