Frequently Asked Questions

How do I purchase a cask from The Glasgow Distillery?

To purchase a cask, please browse our selection of casks on this website and submit an enquiry form for the cask you are looking to purchase. 

What type of casks can I purchase?

The casks are from a number of years and contain either Unpeated, Peated or Triple Distilled spirit within. Each cask is unique, so please consult the individual cask pages to see more details on each cask. 

What is the sales process for purchasing a cask?

Please submit an enquiry for the cask of your choice by clicking the ‘Enquire Now’ button on the cask page. 

Once you have submitted a form, we will get in touch with you and answer any questions you have regarding the purchase of the cask. The cask will be ‘reserved’ for a period of up to 5 days to allow completion of the purchase.

Will I get proof of ownership of the cask I purchase?

Yes – once you have completed the purchase and full payment has been confirmed as received a digital Certificate of Ownership form will be sent to you. 

When and how can I bottle the spirit within the cask?

The spirit within the cask can only be bottled once it is legally Single Malt Scotch Whisky, this is 3 years after the cask fill date. Once this date is passed, you are able to bottle your cask, if you require assistance we will be able to recommend a bottler of choice. 

Where is my cask kept and is it safe?

Yes – your cask is safe and is kept in a secure cask maturation warehouse in Glasgow. Your purchase includes warehouse insurance and rent for a period of 5 years from the date you purchase your cask. Thereafter you will be charged £25 per cask per annum, subject to inflationary increases based on UK RPI.

What type of yield can I expect from my cask?

As part of the maturation process, natural evaporation (known as Angel’s Share) and subsequent loss of spirit from casks will occur. A benchmark evaporation rate of 2% per annum is normally allowed for, however the size of cask, cask location, filling strength and length of maturation all have effect on the rate of loss.

What fees should I factor into the purchase of my cask?

When purchasing your cask, please consider the additional expenses listed below: 

Warehousing and rent over the initial 5 years which is included in your purchase price. Thereafter, we charge rent and warehouse insurance at a cost of £25 per year. 

Bottling cost – you will need to arrange bottling of your whisky once you decide it is time to do so.

Spirits Duty Tax – the UK government currently charge Duty Tax at a rate of £28.74 per litre of pure alcohol. This equates to £9.25 per 700ml bottle, bottled at 46% ABV. It is your responsibility to pay Spirits Duty tax when your cask is ready for bottling and we are not able to release your spirit until proof of payment is provided. 

 

Can I remove the cask when I decide to bottle my whisky?

Ownership of the cask within which your spirit is maturing remains that of The Glasgow Distillery.
