Kirk for History.jpg

“I founded the club to make new friends, drink great scotch, and have fun doing it."

~Kirk Figus, Club Founder

IN EARLY 2009, Kirk Figus was looking for a new hobby and decided to join a scotch club, having developed a casual interest in single malt scotch. There was just one problem — he couldn't find one to join.


After deciding to try to start his own club, he went about recruiting a small group of like-minded adventurers to join him in exploring the many wonders of scotch whisky.


Nine months later, the Single Malt Society was launched with seventeen members brave enough to join a a club that didn't yet exist. The club started to catch on, and one thing led to another. We've continued to add new scotch lovers along the way as we've grown to become one of the largest scotch clubs in the country.

Kirk has now created almost 100 themed tasting events featuring his custom-curated bottle lineups sourced locally, out-of-state, and even from overseas.

As we enter our fifteenth year, Kirk's mission remains unchanged—to create a fun and informal setting to explore single malts, without the snootiness often associated with a wine or spirits tasting group. Members of any experience level are welcome to join the club, whether newbies or long-time malt maniacs, and we all learn a little something new along the way.


After sampling over 500 different whiskies from more than 100 different brands or distilleries, (and making many new friends along the way), we're looking forward to uncorking all the bottles we haven't yet discovered.
