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.

Ardmore Highland Single Malt Hogshead Cask No. 86 Full Cask 2009
Inc. VAT: £13,614.00
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.
