The Benefits of Buying Whisky Cask from Spirits Castle
There are more than a few companies offering whisky cask ownership programs in Singapore. Every firm provides unique casks and services to our clients. At Spirits Castle, we want to be upfront about what we can provide to all our valued clients.
100% local business
Spirits Castle is registered in Singapore. Our home-grown brand makes us approachable and accessible to anyone who buys a whisky cask from us. The team is always just a phone call or text away, which makes all the difference when you request information about your cask. It is also easier for you to arrange a visit to see your cask in Scotland after the world gets rid of Covid-19.
Provides Overview of Upfront Costs
Not everyone will provide you with most of the upfront costs involved in whisky cask ownership. However, we believe in transparency and trust. Therefore, we give an overview of the costs before you commit to a cask. That is a promise that we want to give all our clients.
Mature Whisky on Your Terms
Spirits Castle and Dràm Mòr offer services such as re-racking the whisky into new casks if the original one begins to perform less than optimal. We also can finish your whisky in other casks if you would like to do so. From purchasing the cask until the bottling, we will be with you all the way!
Investing in a whisky cask is a joy, and we want to give you a choice of insuring them. Dràm Mòr partners with an insurance company in Scotland to provide an affordable insurance policy for your cask should you wish to take up protection for your properties in the warehouse.
Flexible Holding Periods
Your holding period is yours to decide. We do not control how long or short you want to hold the whisky cask before bottling or selling it on. What we will do is to provide support and recommendations through the information that we have. When it is time for you to bottle your whisky, we will assist you in bottling it. If you want to sell the cask, we will help you to sell. The support to our whisky cask owners will be from the start to the end.
Why Scotch Whisky is so Popular
The reputation of Scotch whisky proliferates to become the world’s most popular spirit in the last ten years. Scottish whiskies account for over 70% of Scotland’s food and drink exports with its presence in 175 countries. It reaches over £4.7 Billion in exports annually.
The secret to its reputation is not just marketing. The success of Scotch whisky comes from centuries of knowledge, and the ways of its production. There are three ingredients in Scotch whisky – malted barley, water and yeast. Yet, there are four other forgotten elements which are equally crucial.
The Forgotten Ingredients
The first is copper. Many distilleries use copper pot stills for their distillation process, which gives the spirits their unique characters and flavours. Then there are the craftsmen, who bring their knowledge, experience and skills to the making of Scotch whisky. Finally, we need oak and time.
Scotch whisky takes around 70% of its flavour from the oak cask it sleeps in. The mid-1980s legislation make it compulsory that all Scotch whiskies must be matured in oak casks. With the time taken for whisky to develop, we can see the influence of the cask on the spirit.
