The 150th bottling from The Scotch Malt Whisky Society is sure to stand out from the rest!
In celebration of its 150th distillery bottling, The Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS) has provided the perfect bottle to enjoy this St Patricks Day - and it's not a Scotch!
Hailing from a distillery in the south-west of Ireland, Cask 150.1 has arrived just in time to celebrate the big day. Whiskey from the distillery has never been bottled as a single cask, making this a real treat for SMWS members. Distillery 150 has been bottled as 150.1*, ‘Let’s Go West!’ falling under the Society flavour profile ‘Spicy & Sweet’, available to members via ballot entry at £75.
SMWS will also be celebrating the joint occasion of their 150th bottling and St Patrick's Day with a special live stream event, featuring Irish music, a pub quiz as well as hosts from the US and Australia there to discuss the Irish-Scots connection. The event will be streamed live on Thursday, 17th March at 8 pm GMT via the SMWS so don't miss out!
Commenting on the landmark release, Kai Ivalo, Spirits Director said: “For our landmark 150th bottling, we wanted to showcase the journey of our never-ending quest for quality and flavour. Choosing an Irish distillery to mark this milestone occasion truly shows the adventurous spirit of the Society – celebrating our vibrant spirit no matter its source. “Our milestone 150th distillery bottling demonstrates how far the Society has travelled. Having bottled from distilleries way beyond our own shores, we continue to explore a world beyond single cask, single malt Scotch that is at our core. We are celebrating both our beginnings and our future.”
For the whisky (and whiskey!) fans out there, this unique bottling is not one to miss!
