The Scotch Malt Whisky Society has announced plans for a new members’ room in Glasgow, set to open at the end of January 2020.

The society said the new venue will bring its colourful whisky experiences to Glasgow for the first time in a members’ room, and follows on from already established SMWS locations in Edinburgh, including their home at The Vaults in Leith.

The Bath Street location will have rooms exclusively for SMWS members that will be open every week from Tuesday until Sunday.

On offer will be more than 300 Society bottlings spanning their 12 unique flavour profiles such as Old & Dignified and Oily & Coastal, with a selection of outstanding single cask, single malts available by the dram.

Evening Times:

The interior décor of the venue will be consistent with existing SMWS members’ rooms but with a uniquely modern and vibrant Glasgow flavour to reflect this new home for whisky lovers in the city.

The venue space is set up for a range of occasions, with relaxed lounge seating, including a "vaults snug", as well as more formal areas. The dedicated whisky tasting room can accommodate up to 10 people, and will be available for private tastings.

Jan Damen, operations director at the Scotch Malt Whisky Society, said: “We know there has always been a demand from our members for an SMWS venue in Glasgow, so we’re delighted to be opening in such a great city with a lively whisky scene.

“We have a high number of existing members in the city and the surrounding area, so we hope to provide them with their own venue to meet up and also welcome new whisky-loving members to join us there.”

As well as a changing range of SMWS whiskies, there will be a selection of special proprietary whiskies alongside local beers and a menu of creative, whisky-inspired cocktails.
