Growing success for Cask Trade 

“It’s extremely rewarding for myself and the team to be recognised in the FT1000 list among the fastest-growing companies in Europe. In 2021 we opened in Asia with an office in Hong Kong. In 2024 we celebrate our fifth year and we are now proud to be selling casks of whisky and other fine spirits on every continent around the world.” Simon Aron, CEO and Founder of Cask Trade
