How Do Whisky Collectors Start? With One Bottle or a Dream of a Cask?

How Do Whisky Collectors Start? With One Bottle or a Dream of a Cask?

Welcome to the home of old and rare whisky, a collector’s dream location, as not only do we offer bottles of old and rare whisky from across all the Scottish regions and their distinguished distilleries, but also the ultimate whisky of anyone’s collection – their very own cask.

Here at Cask 88 we are obsessed with every aspect of the whisky journey, from knowing about individual distilleries, and their master distillers, to the expressions they have created over the years. For one such example, you may read about Bruichladdich on our blog.

We also relish and value the rich history of whisky itself and the part it has played in the development and growth of Scotland and the UK, and the impact it has had all around the world. We celebrate the legacy of those who have championed Scottish whisky, such as the great Scottish poet Robert Burns.

We are intrigued by the craft of whisky production, the skills involved in creating the casks themselves, and we ponder what makes Scottish whisky stand apart from other whisky, such as bourbon.

We welcome anyone who is on their journey to discover more about whisky, from the eager enthusiast through to the seasoned collector, offering them all the opportunity to develop their collections further with old and rare bottles. We offer expressions that range from relatively young bottles for a little under £100, to extremely rare expressions that cost several thousand for a single bottle. We appreciate that there are those who are looking to buy a bottle to celebrate a 18th or 21st birthday, Father’s day, wedding or other significant celebration, while others may be looking to purchase a bottle as a corporate gift that won’t be forgotten.

More than just a bottle?

There are, however, those we invite in who are looking to acquire more than just one bottle, who are looking to pursue every whisky lover’s dream and own their own cask. We of course offer help at every stage from selection, management and storage through to unique bottling and branding of their chosen stock, accompanying them on a journey that is exclusive to them. They choose what whisky, how long to mature and what finishing is required to ensure they end up with their perfect dram. So if you are looking to buy a cask for a special occasion, to create your own branded whisky, as a corporate gift, or because it has always been your dream to do so – then talk to us today.
