UVWS Code of Conduct

The Upper Valley Whisky Society assists whisky enthusiasts in achieving a balanced and responsible relationship with alcohol, whisky in particular.

While we are a pretty informal group, we expect our members to adhere to a few simple rules:

  1. Members must be at least 21 years of age, that’s the law.
  2. UVWS enthusiasts are all equal; the Society will not tolerate any form of discrimination, be it racial, nationalistic, gender-oriented, or religious. Neither will we tolerate whisky snobbery whether you consider yourself a whisky novice, enthusiast, aficionado, or connoisseur.
  3. All members and guests are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that is courteous, considerate, respectful, and reflective of personal integrity, and goodwill.
  4. We gather to enhance our appreciation of whisky, its history, culture, and taste, not to become inebriated.
  5. Members look out for other members. UVWS events are gregarious and educational gatherings. If you feel impaired, do not attempt to drive, we will get you home safely.
