Complete Whisky Casks

One of the most compelling alternative assets on the market today is cask whisky. The rates of return achievable by whisky casks dwarf those of fine wine, with less risk though there is a more prohibitive cost of entry with casks starting around £3,600 (equivalent to HK$38,500 or SG$6,685) for newly filled barrels and hogsheads and progressing steadily up to 15-year olds at £15,000-£20,000 (equivalent to HK$161,200 - HK$215,000 or SG$27,845 - SG$37,130), at which point the value and cost can begin to truly soar.

Cru is pleased to offer cask sales from some of the finest, most sought after distilleries in Scotland with blue-chip icons Mortlach, Springbank, Laphroaig and Bowmore all attainable for the right price, while more boutique names including closed distilleries and rare single grains, offering incredible upside for comparatively reasonable sums of money.

With Cru's industry-leading automated sales platform designed for fine wine and the first in the world to be applied effectively to cask whisky, there is not where better to invest in this remarkable asset. Whether you're looking for en primeur new make casks, maturing casks with superb upside or venerably mature 25+-year-old single malts we have a uniquely varied supply chain and agile platform built upon our long-standing expertise and close contacts within the industry.

Aberlour Speyside Single Malt Refill Hogshead OLA 147 ABV 63.7% Full Cask 2013
Inc. VAT: £22,205.26
2013

Aberlour Speyside Single Malt Refill Hogshead OLA 147 ABV 63.7% Full Cask 2013

The jewel in the Chivas crown, Aberlour has been a lynchpin of the Speyside landscape since its founding by James Fleming in 1879. Situated in the eponymous village of Aberlour between the River Spey and Ben Rinnes, Aberlour is as decorated a distillery as they come, winning 58 titles at the IWSC and ISC for their various expressions, presenting quality and consistency matched by few if any distilleries in Scotland or around the world.


Aberlour is one of the most popular Speyside single malts for very good reason. Known and beloved for its classic, richly sherried style and incredible balance it is, for many, the first point of contact with both heavily sherried whisky and cask strength whisky in the form of the ever-popular A'bunadh expression. Single cask renditions are however increasingly rare as the distillery's profile raises to such levels that more and more of the spirit is dedicated to distillery bottlings. Those that are found on the market are highly coveted and jealously sought-after.


A rare find on the cask market, this 8-year-old refill hogshead is a relative bargain given the strength of the brand and full naming rights. Sold with OLA numbers rather than RLA, it comes at a solid discount presenting the savvy investor with added upside along with the looming landmark age statements of 10 and 12 years. Suited for the long term as Aberlour's spirit ages exceptionally well, look for this to take on a softened bourbon sweetness and gentle orchard fruit characteristic over the years which will lend itself well to either finishing or to secondary maturation in Sherry or even Madeira wood.

Ardmore Highland Single Malt Hogshead Cask No. 86 Full Cask 2009
Inc. VAT: £17,526.00
2009

Ardmore Highland Single Malt Hogshead Cask No. 86 Full Cask 2009 If Tullibardine is the refined Highland Gentleman then Ardmore is the wild Claymore-wielding cateran with its intense, peat-infused spirit giving it added muscle over many of its Highland counterparts. That said, this is hardly a Highlander at all, hailing from the village of Kennethmont, Aberdeenshire on the borders of Speyside.

Originally founded in the 1890s by William Teacher to provide spirit for the blended whisky Teacher’s Highland Cream it is known as the peated Highland malt. While other distilleries experiment with peat, BenRiach, GlenDronach and Edradour, Ardmore is the only consistently heavily-peated Highlander and as such it has developed a devoted following.

Ardmore is a classic for independent bottlers and even at younger age statements the spirit can impress mightily with its intensity, richness and slightly waxy texture, not dissimilar from Clynelish sans the coastal element. A throwback to an earlier age when many if not all whiskies were at least somewhat peated this is a standalone remnant of Highland malt as it once was.
