Glasgow distillery offers final whisky casks
Scotch whisky maker The Glasgow Distillery Company is selling its casks to the public for the first time as it wraps up its Cask Club programme.
The distiller has picked out 40 unpeated, triple distilled and peated casks that have been filled over the last few years for the sale.
It will include virgin American oak casks that held Glasgow Distillery’s 1770 whisky, as well as ex-Bourbon barrels.
Prices start at £5,000 (US$6,400) for a 200lr ex-Bourbon cask filled in July 2020, and top out at £12,000 (US$15,000) for a 200-litre first fill ex-Bourbon barrel filled in May 2016.
Liam Hughes, CEO and co-founder of The Glasgow Distillery Company said: “We would like to thank everyone who has supported us over the last few years, whether that’s by simply keeping up to date with our recent news, purchasing a bottle from our ever-growing range of spirit brands or putting your name to your very own cask.
“During the early stages of a distillery’s life cycle, programmes such as our Cask Club are particularly important to the growth of the business and as we now move into a new and exciting phase in the history of Glasgow Distillery we felt it was only right to give people who have supported us one last chance to obtain a cask from our maturing portfolio.
“We are delighted with the response from existing Cask Club members who enjoyed an exclusive preview opportunity before we made today’s announcement and we anticipate further interest from many of our single malt supporters.
“After these casks have been sold there will be no more for sale to private individuals. This opportunity will not come around again.”
