SMWS Ambassadors Choice Tasting 2018

Join us on January 6 at 14:00

Come and join Thomas, our ambassador from the Scotch Malt Whisky Society here in Denmark, for one of the highlights of the new year.

This is THE event that we look forward to every year, each year we are surprised by the selection of whisky that Thomas finds for this tasting.

Thomas will take you through a journey of 8 hand picked whisky’s from the SMWS vaults in vejle. Each whisky from the society is a single malt single barrel cask strength whisky from the society. These whisky’s are bottled by the SMWS and outside partner bars, they are generally not available for sale to the public.

OPEN TO ALL

Often, SMWS events are restricted to members of the society, not this one – once a year we open the doors to everyone to join in with this tasting. Every year this tasting brings some fantastic examples of the whisky available from the Scotch Malt Whisky Society, so come along and try some of the great SMWS whiskys.

You do not need to be an SMWS member to enjoy this great tasting …. everyone is welcome 🙂

After the event you will be able to talk to Thomas about the benefits of becoming a member of the SMWS.

There are just 30 places available, and it makes a great christmas gift, so this year we are putting it on sale a little earlier than usual..

Tickets can be purchased online, here

Details of the bottles for the tasting will be announced on our facebook event page and in our mailing list once the final details are known – but dont let that stop you buying a ticket before they are all gone !
