Dingle distillery puts its first 500 casks up for investment

22nd March, 2013 by Andy Young

The Dingle whiskey distillery is giving consumers the opportunity to invest in an individualised cask of pot stilled single malt Irish whiskey.

Dingle Whiskey BarrelsThe Dingle distillery was the first purpose-built distillery for a new whiskey in Ireland in over 200 years and is now the country’s fourth distillery.

Consumers are being offered the chance to become a “Dingle founding father” by investing in one of the distillery’s first 500 casks of whiskey.

Co founder Oliver Hughes said: “The whole idea of the dingle founding fathers is that it’s an opportunity for people to become a founding father of the Dingle distillery.

“It’ll never happen again, there’ll only be 500 worldwide and I see this as a great opportunity for somebody to have their piece of Irish history and heritage, which can be put into a glass.”

As well as owning a cask of Dingle Irish whiskey investors will have the opportunity to “be present for the milestone events in the evolution” of the whiskey.

As a Dingle founding father you will be invited to the distillery to see your own cask distilled and also see the cask being filled. You will be able to see the cask slumber and mature and ultimately bottled; you will be able to decide when that time has come.

There will also be an annual founding father’s dinner in Dingle for all investors to attend.

Dingle’s master distiller, John McDougall, said: “The produce of no two casks of single malt whiskey is ever the same. They may be minuscule differences but they are absolutely there all of the time.

“The interesting thing is that if you a buy a single cask of malt whiskey, then you are indeed buying a unique limited edition.”
