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)
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)
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)
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.
