Whisky Cask Company launches to ‘meet demand’ for Scotch
Whole cask whisky sales firm the Whisky Cask Company has launched to cater for the growing “demand for premium single malt Scotch”.
Launched by Alexander Johnson, founding investor and strategic consultant; Russell Spratley, director; and Ross Archer, head of operations, the Whisky Cask Company was created to make whole cask investments “accessible and enjoyable”.
The Whisky Cask Company will target whiskies aged in barrels made from French oak that have previously held French wines such as Burgundy and Bordeaux.
The firm currently offers casks including ex-white Burgundy casks priced at £5,597 (US$6,900) and Limousin oak casks for £7,197 (US$8,900).
The Whisky Cask Company says it will be able to “guide their customers” from sourcing new make spirit through cask selection and storage.
David Harvey, non-executive director at Whisky Cask Company, said: “What we do is we taste new make before we commit to ageing it, so the raw ingredients that we put into our special French casks is something where we are involved in the quality control process, as it’s important just to know where you are starting.”
According to the Whisky Cask Company, it plans to partner exclusively with a Scotch whisky distillery in the coming months, before executing its long-term vision of constructing its own distillery in Campbeltown.
Archer said: “With global interest in single malt Scotch whisky continuing to grow, particularly in the Asian market, and our confidence in the superior quality of our product, we look forward to the exciting future ahead for the Whisky Cask Company.”
