FIND YOUR WHISKY RHYTHM

FIND YOUR WHISKY RHYTHM

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?

IT’S ALL ABOUT FLAVOUR

INTERVIEW WITH VIC GALLOWAY
You may have noticed that the SMWS bottle doesn’t name the distillery the whisky is from. Due to the nature of single cask whisky, the region or distillery is often not the best indication of what it might taste like. We believe the best way to enjoy our whisky is to focus on its flavour and not where it’s from. For that reason, the Society has developed a unique colour-coded flavour profiling system, to help members navigate our monthly Outturn on the First Friday of every month, and find a whisky best suited to them.

MEET 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.
