The distillery numbers of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society

Julian D. A. Wiseman

Publication history: only here. Usual disclaimer and copyright terms apply.


The Scotch Malt Whisky Society sells excellent bottlings of single-cask whiskies. However, as the Society explains, it “does not use the distillery brand names at the request of the distillers”; instead code numbers are used. There are heavy clues in the Society’s descriptions, but the following will be easier.
