Scotch Malt Whisky Society

Published on: 6/10/18 by Justine

Great news: the world famous Scotch Malt Whisky Society will be joining us for the 2019 Fife Whisky Festival!

Founded in 1983 by Phillip Hills and a group of fellow single malt enthusiasts, the SMWS started out bottling single cask Scotch whisky for their own enjoyment. The venture grew and grew and the rest, as they say, is history.


Without naming any of the distilleries on the bottles, this independent bottler encourages you to choose whisky based on their detailed tasting notes. However, rest assured that the SMWS team will be there to point you in the right direction and lend a helping hand should you need it!


As well as joining us for the main event, the Scotch Malt Whisky Society will be hosting an exclusive tasting for each session. These tutored tastings will be hosted by Andrew Park, SMWS Brand Ambassador, and are limited to just 12 places each.

We’re looking forward to seeing the tasty treats on offer! Be sure to head over to the SMWS stand on 9th March and enjoy a few drams with Andrew and the team!
