The Origins of our Club
The idea to start the Valley Single Malt Whisky Club came after an invitation was extended by David Bevan to Graeme to attend the Glassy Single Malt Society 2011 Christmas Party. This lead to enquiries at the Valley Bar as to who were the single malt drinkers and invitations to attend the inaugural meeting on Burns Night, January 25th, 2012.
David Bevan tells the tale.
Charter Member is the name we use to describe the 20 club members who attended the first meeting January in January 2012. Of the original 20 members, 15 are still regular or occasional attendees. A list of Charter Members can be downloaded from the link below.
How was the Club Logo developed ?
David Sawyer very generously agreed to let Graeme brief the Cliffs Corporate Art Director, Shenandoah Miller, to develop a logo for the Single Malt Club. After various iterations, this wonderful logo was developed. The logo is not formally trademarked, but is protected through usage and could likely be protected in court if the need ever arose.
