Turning five years old
On reaching the minimum maturation period of five years, each cask owner will have the option to either continue maturation at the distillery partner site (at an agreed cost) or have your cask bottled.
Any cask that is requested to be bottled in its entirety will be bottled into 70cl bottles with full private labelling capabilities. We can assist you create a bespoke private label for your special occasion or celebration, or assist you with your private label design with our own in-house team of expert brand and graphic designers.
We recommend bottling between five and seven years of age; ten years is the maximum amount of time your cask can be stored under this scheme. Should you require additional storage, Whiskey Business Club Limited can assist you for an agreed fee.
If you decide to not bottle your whiskey after five years, we can continue to store your cast for an annual fee.
Approximately 2% – 2.5% of the cask contents evaporates each year (the ‘Angel’s Share’).There may also be production losses when the contents of the cask is bottled, but this should not exceed 2% of the total volume. Please note, the evaporation rate of each cask will vary and the losses may be higher than outlined above.
This depends on a number of factors such as maturation rate, age of the whiskey, size of cask (there are slight differences), etc.
On a very approximate basis, you could assume that a barrel (approx. 200x litres), bottled at 40% alc. vol in 70cl bottles after five years, should yield 68x cases, or 397x bottles.
All casks chosen to be bottled will have attached to the bottle a label that prominently displays Whiskey Business Club Limited, along with the name of our distiller. There is of course the option to create a bespoke label, for instance if you are creating your cask as a family heirloom and would like to include a coat of arms or crest. We will be able to advise you further closer to the time of bottling.
After purchasing a cask, the owner is presented with a personalised Cask Owner’s Certificate. The whiskey is allowed to mature within the distilleries partnering warehouse under bond for at least five years where it is carefully monitored by our distillers.
All cask owners will be able to visit the distillery, free of charge during the maturation of their whiskey where private casks will be available for viewing. Please be mindful that it is a working distillery and appointments can only be confirmed in advance in writing.
