Malt Society Arabia (MSA) is a membership-based organisation founded by whisky enthusiasts Puneet Sud, Sujeet Mitra, and Ganesh Iyer as a means to share their unwavering fascination for single malt whisky. The organisation creates unique experiences for its community members including whisky events and tastings, virtual and in-person sessions with industry experts, distillery visits, and limited-edition members-only bottlings.


The MSA partnership with Whisky Live will be spearheaded by Sujeet Mitra, supported by his co-founders and the core leadership team at MSA.


“MaltLive 2024 is testament to Dubai’s stubborn desire to be there first, all the time, every time,” stated Puneet Sud. Sujeet Mitra added that he believes the “event will doubtlessly prove to be a game changer for the local industry”.
