By design, the Los Angeles Whisk(e)y Society is a very private and small group. Membership is by invitation only. New attendees are nominated by existing members. They begin as "Alternates," eventually becoming eligible for full membership.
We know this may sound snooty. But actually, we're pretty easygoing (the occasional formalities on this website are mostly tongue-in-cheek). LAWS is an extended network of friends, and if we don't know you at first, then you become our friend. However, a very deep knowledge in one or more categories of whiskey is required for consideration.

If you're interested in joining, we very rarely admit new Alternates via email -- but you're welcome to contact us and give it a shot. You don't need to be eloquent, but you should explain why you'd be a good fit for LAWS.
