The new venue which is the society’s first in Glasgow, now joins its other Scottish locations in Edinburgh, including their home at The Vaults in Leith.

The new Members Room, which will be open every week from Tuesday until Sunday, will be 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.

Commenting on the news, 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.”

Prior to the January opening of the new Glasgow Members Room, The Scotch Malt Whisky Society will be hosting an exclusive tasting event at the new location. Full details coming soon on their website and social media channels.
