In 2008 we embarked on the journey of a lifetime, touring the world’s most iconic Scottish distilleries to satisfy a deep seeded passion for fine whisky. With each visit our appreciation grew for the craftsmanship, care and vision required to produce a mere drop of “liquid gold”. As we stood gazing up at hundreds of casks in a distillery warehouse, we were drawn in by the history and unique character of every barrel. Each had its own story that would one day live on through the whisky it contained. Decades of meticulous care, just waiting…
The experience was so inspiring that we had a new dream: To own a cask for ourselves.
As we began sharing our aspiration with others, it became apparent that we were not alone. From leading connoisseurs to budding enthusiasts, a universal desire existed to own a cask. We spent months travelling around Scotland, learning the industry and building relationships. Our knowledge grew and so did our portfolio of casks, we simply could not buy just one. Word travelled quickly and soon we were helping others around the globe. What had started as a personal pursuit had transformed into something more.
