Athrú Whiskey Launches New Cask Program

Lough Gill Distillery in Co. Sligo, Ireland, has launched a Premium Cask Reserve Program as part of its journey to create a world-class single malt Irish whiskey and to support its Athrú Whiskey brand.

According to Irish hospitality trade magazine Food For Thought, the Cask Reserve Program offers a unique opportunity to participate in the Athrú whiskey brand and to become part of the unique journey of this premium single malt distillery, and the resurgence of Irish Whiskey, over the coming years.

Cask whiskey investment has proven to be recession-proof and is a good choice for the savvy investor, but casks can also be used to celebrate significant shared milestone events such as weddings, birthdays, or retirement.

Three different cask types are will be made available; 200 Litre Bourbon Casks, 240 Litre Oloroso Casks or 500 Litre Sherry Butts.

The Athrú distillery team will be on hand to answer questions and provide support throughout the process, for example, in helping further refine your whiskey by re-casking in later years.

“We are delighted to invite people to join our distillery’s journey in making Ireland’s most beautiful single malt whiskey, while also enabling us to restore the much loved Hazelwood House and Estate on the shores of Lough Gill, “ said founder David Raethorne.

“Our vision for the Lough Gill Distillery and the Hazelwood House and Estate is to create a world-class visitor centre and a landmark tourist destination for the West of Ireland.”

A proportion of proceeds from the Cask Reserve Program will be reinvested into this vision for Hazelwood Estate, helping restore it to its former grandeur.

Included with cask ownership are annual visits to the Distillery with up to three guests for VIP ‘all areas’ access. Cask owners will also be given private access to the distillery’s bonded warehouses to taste samples and experience first-hand the ‘angels share’.
