Become an owner

A private cask of Scotch Whisky

Is there a particular date on which you would like to fill your cask? Perhaps you want to mark a special occasion – a birthday or anniversary? Let us know, with as much notice as possible.

Once filled, your cask will be warehoused by The Borders Distillery. The first ten years of warehousing and insurance are included in the purchase price.

1837® owners are granted access to a specially-commissioned app, allowing you to monitor the development of your cask, tracking the flavour profile as your spirit slowly matures.

How it works

Your very own Single Malt bottling

We recommend bottling after at least 10 years of maturation, although you may choose to leave your Whisky to mature for longer.

When the time is right, we will arrange bottling for you. A selection of bottles and labelling options are included in the purchase price.

The final number of bottles will vary from cask to cask, and by bottling strength, but a reasonable estimate at 10 years old and 46% ABV might be 260-280 70cl bottles.

Upon bottling, and prior to release from bond, the cask owner will be liable for Duty and VAT according to the rates and laws in place at date of bottling.
