More than 4,200 hours each year are dedicated to sourcing, tasting, and assessing casks for the necessary qualities and character to become a Cask of Distinction, forming a very exclusive assembly of incomparable casks selected from distilleries across Scotland.
“ONLY THE RAREST AND MOST UNIQUE CASKS ARE SELECTED FOR THIS EXCLUSIVE PROGRAMME, REFLECTING THE QUALITY, CRAFT AND EXPERTISE.”
DR. EMMA WALKER
MASTER WHISKY MAKER
Our team includes experts from across our maturing Scotch portfolio. These esteemed individuals bring decades of experience and a deep passion to this very special role.
Excellence has no limits. Chosen casks in the program can come from ‘ghost’ distilleries like Port Ellen and Brora or historical icons like Lagavulin.
Once the casks have been selected, they are transported to their new home in Royal Deeside at Royal Lochnagar. Nestled between the Scottish royal residence and the River Dee, Casks of Distinction sleep peacefully awaiting their new owners.
After bottling, the whisky is carefully stored in our dedicated storage service, Cellarers Wines Limited. Cellarers stores cases and bottles with the utmost care, ensuring optimal conditions, detailed labeling, careful shipping and more.
Introducing, ‘The Twelve’ by Casks of Distinction, an unparalleled collection of Scotch whiskies, representing the pinnacle of whisky connoisseurship.
A carefully curated selection of twelve of the rarest and most exceptional casks known to our master whisky makers, have been unveiled for the first time as part of a global showcase.
Each of the twelve exclusive Scotch whisky casks has been meticulously chosen for its character, offering individuals the opportunity to become part of a storied community of collectors and connoisseurs. Each represents a confluence of prestige and heritage, ideal for your personal collection.
