About the Society

We are a private members’ club that specialises in selling the most unique and exciting whiskies in the world

With over 30 years of bottling strictly single cask, single malt whisky, from over 132 distilleries and with member branches in 19 countries we have seen what our industry can produce, both divine and dreadful.

So rather than walking into a bottleshop or bar and trying to judge a whisky by its age or the label on the bottle, we introduce our members to not just the finest single-cask, single malt whisky, but also how to appreciate, enjoy and just have fun with it.

There has never been a better time to get involved and discover what decades of craftsmanship and skill can genuinely produce. A damn fine whisky, that you can enjoy whilst having fun and socialising with others who appreciate it too.

We welcome everyone to attend our events and to discover and enjoy the never-ending and forever changing adventure that is the Scotch Malt Whisky Society. Join now and find out what the SMWS whisky world has to offer.

I brought the Society to Australia because I believed there were people who shared that same passion for experiencing something truly remarkable. Something you couldn’t buy anywhere else.
