As well as a new release of incredible whisky every month, we’re constantly serving up different ways to enjoy the experience, where members can discover a different side to our whiskies, learn more about our latest bottlings and suggestions on how to share them with fellow members. Our mission is to be the world’s most entertaining whisky club and this experience is exclusive to our members. This May we’ve partnered with BBC Radio DJ and SMWS member Vic Galloway to explore the art of music and whisky pairings, matching our 12 different flavour profiles to different genres. Playing with the pairings to heighten the enjoyment of our whisky experience for fun – what do you think of our matches?

We’d rather concentrate on flavour and character than commandments about what we can and can’t do. An over-arching mark of quality will always be our driving force, the same as when we started out in 1983. As our founder Pip Hills tells us: “It’s the quality of the whisky that matters, not how that quality is produced.” Whatever you drink, we want you to think the same as we do – this is incredible stuff, and we can’t wait to share it.
As a member you can expect to enjoy different memorable whisky experiences every month, alongside: Can’t buy anywhere else whisky, completely unique and straight from the cask. Colourful tastings and events at our venues and virtual. Access for you and up to three guests at our UK Members’ Rooms plus drams discounts at our Partner Bars around the world. Whisky know-how and discovery through our monthly members magazine Unfiltered.
