The Scotch Malt Whisky Society of America is a members-only purveyor of single cask, single malt whisky and one of Etix’s newest clients. The Society was founded in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1983 with its American branch set up in Sunrise, FL in 1993.
The organization ships bottles directly to members and prides itself on quality, one-of-a-kind whiskies yielded by the single cask process. With tasting events and quarterly publications of its Unfiltered magazine, the Society offers one of the foremost entry points into whisky culture for those passionate about the drink.
Founder Phillip “Pip” Hills didn’t himself care for whisky until he discovered malt whisky at university, but in the late 1970s he found the spirits that truly moved him: single cask, single malt whiskies. He gathered a group of similarly passionate friends that expanded into a syndicate, spreading the gospel of single cask whisky and distributing bottles to subscribing members.
“Working with Etix has been one of the most seamless experiences in my career. The backend of the system is easy to learn and use and the staff is knowledgeable and beyond helpful! I look forward to providing my customers with an easy ticketing solution. I recommend Etix to any company looking for a great experience.”
– Gabrielle Shayne, Vice President of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society
Etix will ticket the Society’s tasting events, which range from exclusive Members’ Tastings to lavish Extravaganza events. Members’ Tastings offer an informal night among society members, featuring a step by step tasting of society whiskies with complimentary dinner selections. The Extravaganza events live up to their name, boasting a gourmet dinner buffet, souvenirs and unlimited tasting expressions.
