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.

Inchgower Speyside Single Malt Refill Bourbon Hogshead Full Cask 2020 Cask No. 301490

Founded in 1871 as “The Great Distillery of Inchgower” near the fly fishing haven of Buckie on the River Spey, Inchgower is a true Blue-Blood of Speyside. Small scale by owners Diageo’s standards, the spirit running off of Inchgower’s stills is remarkably hard to find in official bottlings. Once a popular member of the Flora & Fauna stable it has been sadly discontinued and independent bottlings remain the prime outlet for this refined Speysider.


While Auchroisk shows notes of fresh-cut grass, Inchgower’s aromatic profile is more reminiscent of dried hay; red apple rather than green and summer flowers rather than spring blossoms. Its complexity is what has earned it a central role in the world famous Bell’s blended scotch whisky alongside stablemate Blair Athol and as it matures, that complexity comes in with unique elements of aniseed and even turmeric.


Best aged in Bourbon but no slouch in Sherry wood either, this is a versatile spirit and one that has show it can fetch admirable prices when bottled at an advanced age. We expect the discontinuation of the Flora & Fauna bottling coupled with the success of Indy icons such as That Boutique-y Whisky Company, Càrn Mor and Douglas Laing give this cask ample scope for value appreciation in the medium to long term.

We are pleased to have secured a number of 2021s in a year when many distillers are severely cutting their allocations of casks to the market and it is a particular coup's barrels specially selected for us; bourbon-sized barrels previously used for top-grade Oloroso sherry giving a smaller surface area than ex-sherry hogsheads, butts or puncheons. Therefore the whisky will develop relatively quickly, rewarding the years more profoundly than lower-quality, lower-cost refill barrels.
