The Cask Trade Trilogy

The Cask Trade Trilogy

Introducing The Cask Trade Trilogy

We are delighted to introduce you to The Cask Trade Trilogy, a limited edition trio of casks available in three unique expressions. (Limited to 1 per customer).

Using new make spirit distilled at the award-winning Speyside Distillery in Kingussie, Scotland, we will create three distinct whisky expressions– Bourbon, Sherry and Port Matured.

The Journey Begins

From the moment this classic Speyside spirit is filled into cask it starts to develop and take on the flavours ingrained in the wood. After three years the whisky will begin to evolve and gain the milestone of single malt status when you will be invited to take your first taste. From here you can choose to bottle it after five years or continue on the maturation journey.

A passionate purchase

The creation of this Trilogy is a first for Cask Trade and a truly exceptional opportunity for whisky enthusiasts and investors alike.

Like you, we are fanatical about whisky and believe the marrying of the liquid with the wood to create three different flavour profiles will be an extraordinary experience.

For the love of whisky

We have priced the casks keenly with passionate whisky enthusiasts in mind, offering you a fulfilling experience at an affordable price and one we believe is a good investment. The total Trilogy price is £5,000. We have included 5 years free storage and insurance for your convenience.

Trilogy Cask 1   

First-fill Bourbon Barrel

130 casks (100 Trilogy Sets)

£1,350

Available now

Bourbon barrels are perfectly suited to maturing Scotch whisky. The bourbon they previously held softens the oak, ensuring a smooth and subtle whisky. These barrels have been made exclusively from American oak, giving the whisky a honeyed and vanilla characteristic.

Trilogy Cask 2 

Second-fill Sherry Hogshead

100 casks (100 Trilogy Sets)

£1,750

Available now

The lingering flavours of the sherry are still present in the wood and these are shared with the maturing whisky. The profile is typically deep and sweet, fruity and nutty giving the whisky a distinctive colour and strong, rich flavour.

Trilogy Cask 3

Port Wine Barriques

100 casks (100 Trilogy Sets)

£1,900

Available June 2021

The port barriques impart the vibrant fruit-filled flavour profile of the fortified wine giving the whisky a subtle ruby hue, often resulting in a richness and sweetness.

Speyside Distillery Focus

Speyside Distillery Focus

Nestled inside the magnificent Cairngorm National Park is the Speyside distillery. Opened in 1990 Speyside distillery didn’t show up on anybody’s radar until the new owners took over in 2012. Since then they have released some very exciting expressions. From a 12/18 and 27-year-old to 12-year-old peated cask and a 12-year-old port cask. However, what investors should certainly pay close attention to are their three cask strength versions. Tenne (Port finish), Trutina (Bourbon), and Fumare (Peated – Bourbon cask). These expressions will tell you how well this whisky ages in the cask.

Speyside Distillery

Recently we introduced an opportunity for investors to purchase what we called The Cask Trade Trilogy. This consists of three casks of Speyside new-make spirit aged in three different casks. To view Sir Colin Hampden-White and Phil Huckle taste indicative samples of the tasty trio click here. Speyside distillery really is producing some fantastic liquid!

The distillery is currently producing about 600,000 litres per year with a fermentation time of between 70-120 hours. We would describe their whisky as quite light in style but with a wonderful depth of flavour. Brand Executive Phil’s tasting notes when trying their bourbon cask talked of lots of floral, honey, citrus and grassy notes.

Branded SPEY Casks

From an investor’s point of view, not only is Speyside a rising star that is bound to surprise people in the future, but it is incredible value for money. Also, it is becoming increasingly popular in the all-important Asian market and right now is already very popular in Taiwan. We can’t recommend this distillery enough!
