The Gathering 2022 at The Scotch Malt Whisky Society

Gather your pals, because summer in Edinburgh isn't over yet.

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society in Edinburgh is hosting a series of exclusive events this September to celebrate the last of the warm Summer nights.

Although the capital's hectic festival season is over, you can still gather your friends and enjoy 'The Gathering 2022' at Queen Street Gardens in celebration of the Society's annual Gathering of whisky enthusiasts, where old friends and new faces will gather for a day of outstanding whisky, food, and entertainment.

The Gathering 2022 on Saturday 10th September will be joined by friends of the whisky society including Striped Pig, providing a hog roast, The Oysterman with freshly shucked oysters and Belhaven Smokehouse, serving smoked and cured fish. And of course the society's specially curated SMWS Dram Bar. This year, guests will be joined by their sister company J.G Thomson, allowing members and guests to try some exquisite whisky drams.

The sounds of Saltire Street Band, a New Orleans jazz band, will keep guests entertained throughout the event. The celebrations will take place on Saturday, September 10th, at Queen Street Gardens in the heart of Edinburgh's New Town, and are open to both old and new faces, members and non-members.

Tickets are priced at £65 per person and include food and drinks tokens to redeem against all food and beverage vendors. The event will run from 13:00pm - 19:00pm;

Advance booking for all events at The Scotch Malt Whisky Society is required. Visit the SMWS website now to register for the exclusive events, and raise a glass to the end of Summer 2023 as the nights grow darker.
