What we're about
This is a group for people who are at least 21 and interested in Scotch, both single malt Scotch whisky, and blended Scotch whisky. If you like Scotch and live in the Austin area, this is the group for you. We may, from time to time, have other whisky related events, but the main focus is Scotch whisky. We have meetups where people can learn about and taste Scotch and other whisky. Even if you are new to trying and loving Scotch or are an expert who can identify which bottling a certain single malt is from with a mere whiff, you will be able to enjoy what we have planned for our events and sharing our appreciation of this time honored spirit. When drinking and learning about Scotch, a person is embarking on a journey that will take them along the clear waters of the River Spey, the rugged mountains of the gorgeous Highlands, and the legendary Isle of Islay, all in one glorious place: Scotland! (We may even venture to Japan and even America for some Scottish style whisky being crafted in these places!) The clear water of Scotland, the barley, the peat and the yeast create it; time and the Scottish air, full of the sea, smoke and heather, caress it and lovingly nurture it, and the barrels finish the process providing color and flavors from beginning to end. We give the Angel's their share, and raise our drams in fellowship and love of the precious spirit once known as uisge beatha, but loved the world over as Scotch Whisky.
