Whisky Ownership Summary

Whisky only matures when stored in an oak cask. Once bottled, maturity halts and the whisky remains unchanged. The ‘age statement’ on a bottle of whisky represents the amount of time it was matured in an oak cask. The longer a whisky is matured,

the better, and more expensive it becomes.


Whisky Cask Ownership Journey

The journey begins with the purchase of a cask from a renowned Scottish Distillery. A “new fill” cask contains the liquor which will eventually mature into a Scotch Whisky. At this stage the contents of a cask is as clear as water and extremely high in alcohol content. Because it has not matured yet it is not classed as a Scotch Whisky which makes this the lowest price point of a cask. 


Scotch Whisky Economic Figures

Scotch Whisky is the most traded spirit internationally. It is worth £5 Billion to the British economy and makes up 21% of all UK food and drink exports. In value Scotch Whisky is bigger than the UK’s iron/steel, textiles, shipbuilding, or computer industries. It is around half the size of the UK’s pharmaceuticals or aerospace industries and is one third the size of the entire UK car industry. It is big business!

The Difference Between a Single Malt and Blended Whisky 

Put simply, “Single” means it is the product of one distillery, and “Malt” is the malted barley which is used to produce a Single Malt Whisky.


By law, a distillery can only produce a single malt whisky by producing it entirely on their grounds using 100% malted barley. 


Map of Scottish Distilleries

Scotland is famous for many things. Breathtaking landscapes, interesting history and of course, world class whisky. 


Each region produces whiskies which offer unique characteristics and flavours. For example, the Island of Islay is famed for producing heavily peated whiskies. Whereas Speyside produces sweeter floral notes.
