As you might already know, whisky club and bottler the Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS) has returned to Singapore, collaborating with its Singapore representative, La Maison du Whisky (LMDW). 

Bottles will be available to the general public, but SMWS Singapore members will have special access to the lineup, discounts on tasting sessions as well as discounted prices by the pour at partner bars. You can find more details here:–
