Special ‘Glorious 12’ menu of seasonal game tapas and rare whiskies on offer as whisky club welcomes non-members

With the game season in full swing, The Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS) is inviting flavour hunters to visit its Members’ Rooms in Edinburgh and experience the delights of SMWS membership – and a special ‘Glorious 12 Rare Whisky & Game Tapas’ tasting menu.

Until 20th October, the Society’s Members’ Rooms at 28 Queen Street and The Vaults in Giles Street, Leith will be open to non-members who want to discover more about the SMWS experience and its single cask whiskies.

For this limited period, tickets (£25) are on sale for visitors to access the venues with a Society guide and enjoy the ‘Glorious 12 Rare Whisky & Game Tapas’ tasting menu, which highlights the complex flavours in the Society’s whiskies and different types of game meats. Following their unique tasting, guests can access the private members lounge and the Society’s range of more than 200 rare single cask malts.

Both SMWS Members’ Rooms will also be running a ‘Flavour Shooting Gallery’ competition – guests can shoot an array of the flavours found in SMWS whiskies to win prizes.


The menu

The menu features four Scottish game tapas dishes, each served in shooting clays, flavour-matched with four of the Society’s single cask whiskies – including wild mallard bresaola with orange and fennel salad paired with a sweet, fruity and mellow whisky; and guinea fowl with pearl barley and parsley broth paired with a lightly peated whisky.

Membership offer

A special discounted membership offer will also be available during this period – anyone wishing to join the Society during their visit will have their ticket cost deducted from membership, making membership £97 rather than the standard £122. New members will receive a luxurious welcome pack, including a Member handbook, three SMWS malts and an e-voucher.
