If you’re an avid whisky drinker, you might want a membership.

Joshua Hatton and Jason Johnstone-Yellin, well known whisky connoisseurs, have partnered with Seth Klaskin, to form the Jewish Single Malt Whisky Society.

“Joshua and I started as whisky bloggers.  He actually had the name Jewish Single Malt Single Whisky.  As bloggers, we started to build a lot of contacts within the whisky industry and we started to build these relationships. Neither one of us gotten into blogging thinking we would make it into a company.  We were total whisky nerds and remain whisky nerds,” said Jason Johnstone-Yellin, Vice President and Co-Founder of Jewish Single Malt Whisky Society.

The membership only group will release a limited number of “single cask, single malt, natural cask strength whiskies” throughout 2012 to its tiered membership base.

As Scothnoob.com points out, bottles will mostly range from $95-$150 each, although certain bottles will be priced higher.

“We worked really hard to make the site look nice, we didn’t want it to just be sell sell sell,” Johnstone-Yellin said.

Membership rates start at $180 for the year.
