Welcome to the Cambridge University Whisky Appreciation Society, or CUWAS for short!

Throughout the year, we aim to present a variety of types of whisky, be it from Scotland or other countries you might not associate with it, such as India or Taiwan, as well as other distillates, with the intention to expand your minds (and your palates) to the wider world of spirits which lie beyond.

CUWAS as a society is not just about drinking lovely stuff, but it’s also a great place to meet new people. Our tastings are very informal and open to everyone, even if you are not affiliated to the university. Regardless if you’re a whisky connoisseur or if you’re a complete beginner who’s trying a new drink for the first time, come and join us and we’ll be glad to have you. This is a great place to learn about the countless flavours of whisky, but also about the larger context in which it is produced and the different factors which can influence a spirit. With quite a large amount of whisky experience on the committee, it’s certainly a place where you can glean some knowledge into this spirit we all enjoy.

PS: While CUWAS is many cool things, it is definitely not a drinking society. We do not promote excessive drinking and only support the responsible appreciation of good spirits.
