Raising spirits at The Scotch Malt Whisky Society

Share Article

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society is offering a whisky experience with a difference. Discover rare single cask single malt Society whisky along with spirits of a different kind through tales from the most haunted distilleries around Scotland.

For those looking for a terrifyingly good evening, The Scotch Malt Whisky Society is offering a chilling whisky experience, with a paranormal twist, in one of Scotland's oldest commercial buildings in Leith, Edinburgh.

In the eerie underground depths of the Vaults, deep below the Society's members' room, guests will be treated to a candlelit whisky tasting accompanied by tales of the 'spirits' (of the non-whisky variety) from the most haunted distilleries around Scotland. This is followed by a sumptuous three course dinner upstairs in one of the Vaults' beautiful private rooms, along with tales of paranormal activity from the local area.

The evening is presented by a figure from the past, Mr J G Thomson, a wine and spirits merchant from the late 18th century, who traded in the deep underground cellars of the Vaults - the perfect host for the evening. In association with paranormal connoisseurs, Mercat Tours of Edinburgh, Mr Thomson guides guests through the evening's 'spirited' delights with his wonderful story telling. To accompany this a Society whisky Ambassador, introduces the very best single cask, single malt whiskies from haunted distilleries across Scotland.

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society is a membership organisation offering the widest selection of single cask, single malt whiskies available. The Society unites single cask malt whisky and single malt whisky lovers across the world in a variety of engaging, informative and entertaining environments to encourage the appreciation of the finest malts in the best settings.

The 'Spirited' package is open to anyone who dares to partake in this paranormal activity, with the requirement of a minimum of 10 people per party. The package is available from £85 + VAT per person.

About The Scotch Malt Whisky Society:

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society started 25 years ago when a group of discerning friends shared the price of a single cask of fine malt whisky. The aroma of the cask was wonderful and it tasted even better. It was the first of many.

Today the Society continues to bottle only single casks from a range of 125 malt whisky distilleries. Only the very best single cask, single malt whisky is selected, having been approved by the Society's Tasting Panel.

Over 26,000 individuals worldwide enjoy the many pleasures and benefits of membership, with three superb Members' Rooms, two in Edinburgh and one in London.

The Society remains true to its origins, retaining its personal and companionable atmosphere in its publications, UK-wide events and premises.
