I have a group of friends that like to get together every once in a while to drink/taste scotch. I've loosely called it "Scotch & Friends". Since I live in San Francisco, I have called it "S&F: SF".
Long term, I would like to see different friends host "Scotch & Friends" events in different cities, e.g. Scotch & Friends: New York (S&F: NYC), Scotch & Friends: Atlanta (S&F: ATL), etc.
For the logo, I feel like the "S&F" should be prominent. Given the scotch tasting angle, it should have a fun, sophisticated feel. I could see this logo being etched on the side of glass, or possibly a badge on a sport coat.
The logo should be able to stand on its own without a city name, but preferably have a location where a city name or abbreviation could be added in smaller font.
Optionally, adding "Established 2013" or "Estd. 2013" could give it a classic feel.
