Welcome to The Whisky Club; Sláinte to Summer 2023!
TWC Monterey is in the heart of downtown Monterey at
425 Alvarado Street to share the joy of
Uisge Beatha--"The Water of Life in Gaelic".
For centuries, the art of Scotch and Whisky making has been appreciated and valued by connoisseurs and novices alike. Scotch and Whisky have never been as globally popular as they are today. The Whisky Club and TWC11 have been established so locals, visitors and whisk(e)y enthusiasts have an opportunity to experience various and many unique expressions of whiskies and other spirits from across the world. In addition to an amazing selection of whiskies, TWC offers CA & French wines, draft beer and cocktails on tap, mocktails and N/A Beer as well as small bites and desserts. Our team is happy to pour a dram or tour, serve a cold draft beer or glass of wine, or create a handcrafted cocktail and serve small bites to your specific preferences.
Drink Less, Drink Better @TWC
The Whisky Club is a place to enjoy and experience many different expressions respectfully and maturely. It takes great effort to produce whiskies, many not enjoyed for decades thanks to discerning palates and patience, and spirits all throughout the world. TWC was founded with great appreciation and knowledge of the distilling process, engineering, farming, sustainable practices, innovation and global partnerships the industry has cultivated for centuries. In addition, there is deep respect for the beauty of the land and waters that provide the raw ingredients of so many great whiskies to be produced and the many distilleries and companies and even families who continue to explore and invest in this great craft, providing great products throughout the world.
The Whisky Club in Downtown Monterey has limited production scotch, Bourbons, Ryes and International whiskies as well as the expressions we’ve come to appreciate and enjoy over the years available in both the Tasting Room and Bottle Shop. The Tasting Room features over 600 expressions of Scotch and Bourbon for one to taste or imbibe as well as many unique and difficult to obtain selections in the Bottle Shop. It is the intention that one can experience a 1-2 ounce pour of a whisk(e)y before purchasing an entire bottle; in fact, we have several collectors and investors who visit that enjoy pours of bottles they have in their personal collection that they have not opened yet.
