Only One Month to Go
Start getting excited!
World Whisky Day – Saturday 17th May 2014
With exactly one month until World Whisky Day, May 2014 certainly has plenty in store for whisky lovers.
With celebrations across Scotland and signature WWD events in Aberdeen and Edinburgh, we are particularly excited about The Scotch Malt Whisky Society’s Clans and Drams Festival as it opens its doors to members and non-members alike with a month-long celebration of flavour.
Clans are famously associated with territorial battles and bloody skirmishes but the Society believes that the pleasure of exquisite whisky supersedes any family feud or clan dispute. So instead of battling over bloodlines, everyone (Scot or not) is invited into the Society’s members’ rooms in Edinburgh, Leith and London during May to ally themselves to a whisky clan.
The Society, which bottles single cask single malt whiskies from a huge range of distilleries, has created 12 special whisky clans based on flavour profiles. Every traditional family clan has a reputation that defines them, attributes such as bravery, honesty or dexterity. The Society have taken real clan mottos and personalities and attributed these to their flavour clans. Whether you’re the fiery ‘Spicy and Sweet’, or the majestic ‘Deep, Rich Dried Fruits’, there is a whisky clan for everyone.
As well as opening its doors to non-members throughout May and pairing 26 new single cask whiskies to the 12 flavour clans, The Society is hosting a number of events including the official signature event of World Whisky Day on Saturday 17th May.
