From Scotland To The World
The spiritual home of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society is The Vaults in Leith, where they started out in 1983 in a historic but dilapidated building that can still be seen at the heart of their Society monogram. The building has now been beautifully restored, and as the membership of the Society has grown, they have added Members' Rooms at 28 Queen Street in Edinburgh's New Town, at 19 Greville Street in London's Farringdon district, and most recently at 40 Bath Street in Glasgow.
The Society has now established a presence in several countries including Austria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Malaysia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore, and the US. Each branch of the Society releases regular batches of new whiskies throughout the year and hosts events for both members and non-members.
