What should you consider when buying a whisky cask?

There are lots of important considerations when buying a cask of whisky.  What region do you want?  There can be significant regional differences between Highlands, Lowlands, Islands, Speyside and Islay.  What kind of new make spirit do you want?  Peated or unpeated spirit will have a big impact on the final product.  What wood influence are you after from your whisky cask?  Whether you choose something traditional like an ex-bourbon or ex-sherry cask, or go for something different like ex-wine or ex-port, the flavours will change over time.  And finally, how long do you want to leave your cask to mature, and how many bottles are you hoping for at the end?  Whisky casks come in all shapes and sizes, including Octaves, Quarters, Barrels, Hogsheads, Puncheons and Butts.  Our team can help you with all of these considerations, and are here to help you choose the ideal cask of whisky/whiskey for you to own, buy, or bottle.  Use the form below to contact us for further information.
