Welcome to the Cambridge University Whisky Appreciation Society or CUWAS for short! Over the course of the year, we aim to present you with a wide range of whiskies, including both Scotch and world whiskies, as well as other spirits, to open up your minds (and ours!), your taste buds, and to educate and expose you to the delicious and unique fine spirits that the world has to offer.

We have just had a fantastic year under the leadership of Jamie Harbour and Jennifer Kopanic. We hope to continue their amazing work by maintaining the high quality of events and by providing you with some great and unique tastings. We’ll be trying whiskies from around the world, but also plan to expand our tastings to include other quality spirits.

I’ve been a member of CUWAS for just over a year now and feel very lucky and excited to be the new president of the society! When I joined last year I had zero knowledge of whisky. What I found over the course of the first few tastings is that CUWAS is more than just a whisky society; it’s a fantastic place to meet new people and have a great night out. I’ve not only learnt a lot but also had a great time each evening, always looking forward to the next one! I really hope that we can give you the same experience this year. So, whisky connoisseur or whisky amateur, come join us, have a drink (or six), learn a little, and have some fun!

If you would like to join our mailing list, please send a blank email to cuwas-subscribers-join@srcf.net, and please check out all the events we have to offer! Can’t wait to meet you all!

Sonia Nestorowa – President
