Case Study

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society, The Vaults

George Nicolson are delighted to hold a long term working relationship with the Scotch Malty Whisky Society. Over many years, we have undertaken professional decoration works throughout their venues.

Recently at The Vaults, our works encompassed the preparation and decoration of the reception, corridor, members WC’s, Cask Room, Member’s Room, 1st floor office, ground floor entrance IVS and hallway.

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society, The Vaults are located in the historic Leith area of Edinburgh. Dating back to the 18th Century, the building is one of Scotland’s oldest commercial premises, originally used as a wine warehouse. For many members, The Vaults, with its leather sofas, roaring fires and friendly ambience, remains the heart and soul of the Society.

The Society also has a presence in Austria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Malaysia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore and the US. Each branch releases regular batches of new whiskies throughout the year and hosts events for members and non-members.

The SMWS has a growing network of international partner bars that have been exclusively selected to offer Society whisky. The partner bars provide a home from home for Society members and whisky lovers alike, offering a unique and extensive range of exclusive single cask offerings for you to indulge and delight in.

At the Scotch Malt Whisky Society, The Vaults, non-members and members alike can book a private room for a special meal and whisky tasting. For more information, please visit their website:
