Whisky Society

Join one of Napier’s most friendly, active, and welcoming societies, created in 2004.

Come “learn” about Scotland’s finest "Uisge Beatha", the water of life. You don’t need to know anything about whisky – or even have tried it. We welcome everyone, and hope that after a semester, a year, or many years with us, you’ll have made friends and had great fun.


Our meetings are an affordable way to taste more whiskies than you ever could alone. We meet every fortnight at Bainfield Bar where you get 5 great whiskies for £10 (member) or £14 (non member).

Every meeting is followed by a social gathering at the Athletic Arms where free snacks are provided.

Upcoming Tastings:
  • Food pairing (10 / 10 / 2018)
  • Smoke, Trick or Peat (24 / 10 / 2018)
  • Odd Ball (07 / 11 / 2018)
  • Smokey & Peaty (21 / 11 / 2018)
  • Winter Warmers (05 / 12 / 2018)

You can benefit from our special offer, the Second Semester Pass (available until 14th of February 2019 only!). For £60 you have access to every meeting (except the first one, Tour of Scotland), which includes:

  • 50/50 (30 / 01 / 2019)
  • Love Island (Whiskies) (13 / 02 / 2019)
  • Kids of the 90's (27 / 02 / 2019)
  • Celtic Spirits (13 / 03 / 2019)
  • Old and New Blood / Almuni (27 / 03 / 2019)
  • Blind Tasting (10 / 04 / 2019)
  • Highlights / AGM (24 / 04 / 2019)

This trip is so popular that we’ve even had people fly back to Scotland just to join us, so it is most definitely as unforgettable as it is unmissable!
