News: Scotch Malt Whisky Society to open Members’ Room in Glasgow


The Scotch Malt Whisky Society has unveiled plans for a new Members’ Room in the heart of Glasgow, set to open at the end of January 2020.

The new venue will bring the full SMWS experience to Glasgow for the first time and follows on from established locations in Edinburgh, including their home at The Vaults in Leith. 

A short walk from Glasgow Queen Street Station, the Bath Street location will have rooms exclusively for SMWS members, open every week from Tuesday to Sunday.

With more than 300 Society bottlings spanning 12 unique flavour profiles the interior will be consistent with existing Members’ Rooms with a uniquely modern and vibrant Glasgow flavour.

The space will be designed for a range of occasions, with relaxed lounge seating, including a ‘Vaults Snug’ and dedicated whisky tasting room that can accommodate up to 10 people, available for private tastings.

As well as an evolving range of SMWS whiskies, there will be a selection of special proprietary whiskies alongside local beers and a menu of creative whisky-inspired cocktails. A bar food menu including snacks and tapas will also be available.

Jan Damen, Operations Director at the SMWS, said: “We know there has always been a demand from our members for an SMWS venue in Glasgow, so we’re delighted to be opening in such a great city with a lively whisky scene.

“We have a high number of existing members in the city and the surrounding area, so we hope to provide them with their own venue to meet up and also welcome new whisky-loving members to join us there.”

Prior to the January opening, Society members can gain a sneak preview of 38 Bath St at a free event with drams and nibbles, and are invited to bring along their friends to reap exclusive membership referral awards…
