Malt Whisky Society opens in Glasgow


THE Scotch Malt Whisky Society has expanded into Glasgow with the opening of its new Members’ Room on the city’s Bath Street.

The venue, which will also be open to non-members every Tuesday in March, stocks more than 300 of the society’s bottlings as well as local beers and whisky cocktails.

On the food side there is a range of Scottish tapas as well as dishes such as braised Scotch lamb hotpot and whisky-cured salmon.

In addition to lounge seating and a ‘Vaults snug’, the venue includes a whisky tasting room for up to ten people, which is available for private tastings, while the entire venue can be hired for exclusive use on Mondays for groups of up to 120 people.

Calum Lawson, manager of the Glasgow venue, said: “We’re delighted that our brand-new Members’ Room is now open in the wonderful city of Glasgow.

“We have a high number of existing members in the city and the surrounding area and we can’t wait to welcome them into the new venue, as well as recruiting new whisky-loving members. We are so excited that we’re now very much a part of this amazing city’s vibrant whisky scene.”
