The Water of Life Society is dedicated to enjoying whisky. We run weekly tasting evenings during the academic year where we showcase and share our thoughts on a variety of drams. Although we focus on Scottish Single Malts, we often include other types of whiskies from all around the world including from America, Ireland, Japan, and many more places you wouldn't expect! 


We have been able to figure out a virtual tasting model that we think works well, we're a friendly group and we look forward to meeting you online, and eventually, in person. Even virtual meetings are a perfect place to learn about this important segment of the Scottish culture and tradition, meet new people, and have a good time. Restrictions allowing, we hope to run our legendary distillery trip in semester 2, watch this space!

Members have a discount on all tastings and will receive a complimentary WOLS whisky glass with their first tasting pack of the year!


If you'd like to keep up to date with all our events and tastings, join us on Facebook, check out our website, or sign up to our mailing list. You can also follow our Twitter or our Instagram, or get in touch with us via e-mail at euwols@gmail.com.
