SMWS Distillery Codes

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society refers to distilleries by number instead of name. This allows them to more easily bottle whiskies where the distillery doesn’t wish to be disclosed, and allows the customer to focus on the name and flavor instead of the distillery.

For my own ease of use and yours, I’ve collected the various distilleries and their numbers:
