Itinerary: Four Day Cask Filling Whisky Trip and Cask Ownership

27th July 2019

This year we are buying our very first whisky cask from the fantastic Speyside distillery of Ballindalloch. We are offering you the chance to take part by joining us on a luxury four-day whisky weekend in October 2019.

Taking part in this offer means you will get a 5% share of the cask which equates to roughly 15 bottles of your very own Ballindalloch single malt whisky. You will also be invited to join us in filling the cask at the distillery with 6 other cask owners. We originally offered the cask to our whisky club and it sold out within 24 hours.

The itinerary below outlines the full weekend cask filling and the costs for both the weekend and the cask ownership. There are other benefits to becoming a cask owner with us, including the possible upside to investing early in a future high-demand distiller, so please reach out if you want more information.
