Frequently asked questions
The Scotch Malt Whisky Society bottles only the most unique and full-flavoured single cask, cask strength whiskies and other spirits, exclusively for our members. We don’t list the distillery name on the bottles instead opting for a coding and cask name approach, meaning you get to focus more on the flavour of what’s inside, rather than the brand of that distillery. It also means we’re able to source the very best single casks for bottling from distilleries from around the world. Every cask is unique, thus every bottling is unique and goes through the rigorous Tasting Panel to be approved for bottling. Only the best pass, and that’s how we’re able to offer that to members.
No! It’s your membership, your way. There’s no minimum commitment on bottles or events purchased in the year.
If your membership was a gift, someone else may have given you a password, so just give us call if you would like it reset – 02 9974 3046.
There’s no such thing as free shipping, so to help cover this we offer a $15 flat-rate shipping fee on all orders delivered in Australia. That’s $15 regardless of where you live, and regardless of how many bottles / tasting tickets / glasses / tasting packs are in your order!
Nope! Every bottle is a unique single cask whisky that is made available only to our members. Being single cask, availability of each cask is almost always extremely limited and one of the perks of membership is access to these incredibly tasty casks. Another great reason to join!
