The clock is ticking – but how do you search out the best whisky to pick for a Christmas present? Our Whisky Concierge can help with that

Reading Time: 2 minutes

We all know that whisky makes the perfect gift at any time of year – but nothing can beat a bottle of Society single cask, single malt during the festive season.
The only issue? You might be feeling a little bit spoiled for choice, with the variety of bottlings and the range of flavour profiles on offer from the SMWS.
No need to stress out though – our Christmas Whisky Concierge can help you to identify the perfect whisky present, whoever it is you’re buying for.

The Society is running a Meet the Concierge sample session at our Kaleidoscope Whisky Bar at 28 Queen Street every day in the run up to Christmas, from 6-7pm. For £15, you can have a taste of five different whiskies from our extensive range – and a chance to chat to our Whisky Concierge in person. If you buy gift membership, we’ll even refund the price of your sample session ticket. Get in touch directly with 28 Queen Street on 0131 220 2044 to secure your spot.

If you’re in London, both the Kaleidoscope Whisky Bar at Devonshire Square and our Members’ Rooms at 19 Greville Street are sharing some of their favourite bottlings during 12 Drams of Christmas, with 12 different distillery bottlings in a three-dram tasting for 12 nights. Members and their guests can get into the festive spirit and pick up some gift suggestions for £20.

Alternatively, pop in to see us at any of our Members’ Rooms for a chat with one of our ever-helpful ambassadors behind the bar – they’ll be happy to help guide your choice.

And remember you can always give us a call on +44 (0)131 555 2929 from 8am to 6pm or even chat online at
