The Malmaison and Hotel du Vin Brand Ltd and The Scotch Malt Whisky Society are toasting the success of their collaboration by rolling out their partnership to a further 12 hotels across the UK.
The collaboration, which was unveiled in January 2010 at Hotel du Vin hotels in Birmingham and Brighton and Malmaison in Aberdeen, was created to allow Society members and Whisky enthusiasts the chance to experience the Society and its wide array of single cask malt Whiskies in a stylish location. Since then, it has proved extremely popular with guests and members and from November 2010 will be rolled out to the remaining properties within the Hotel du Vin group.
Commenting on the roll-out, Paul Miles, managing director of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society said: “The last few months have shown us that our presence in the hotels has been a welcome one and it has allowed us to tell the story of the Society to a new audience as well as provide a new and unique whisky destination for our existing members to enjoy our special whiskies. Naturally we are very excited to be taking the partnership UK wide and allowing even more whisky enthusiasts to experience The Scotch Malt Whisky Society first hand.”
Robert B Cook, CEO of Malmaison and Hotel du Vin said: “This partnership further demonstrates our dedication and passion for exceptional food and drink within our brand. Giving our guests the opportunity to savour some of these exclusive and eclectic whiskies throughout our boutique hotels.”
As part of the collaboration a selection of single cask Society Whiskies will be available in the hotel bars and bespoke tastings will be arranged for guests. Society Whiskies can be matched with as well as featured within dishes served in the Bistro restaurants and membership will also be available to purchase at the bar.
All bar staff within the group have undergone extensive training by the Society so they can expertly recommend the perfect Society Whisky for each customer.
With an ever-changing range of single cask, single malt bottlings on offer the Society offers a range of exciting Whiskies that both experts and emerging enthusiasts will enjoy.
