Aberfeldy Cask Values & Valuations 

Aberfeldy is a distillery that still sends a large proportion of its whisky for use in blends.  However, following a re-brand in 2014 more single malt has been released and a few casks are in private ownership.

Owing to how scarce casks of Aberfeldy single malt are on the market prices can still be strong despite the distillery not being considered as a ‘premium’ malt.

We specialise in the brokerage of Aberfeldy casks and have buyers all over the world ready to put forward a no-obligation offer.

The most desirable Aberfeldy casks are fresh fill sherry oak casks, however, refill sherry casks are also in demand.  Bourbon casks (quite common at Aberfeldy) do not command the same premium as sherry casks but can still sell well.

Macallan

“From my initial contact with Mark the whole experience of selling my cask of 1989 Macallan Whisky has been a breeze. Mark was very helpful, exceedingly dedicated and totally professional at all times.

It was an excellent service provided at a very reasonable cost. Mark obtained a fantastic six-figure sum for my cask which I am completely over the moon with.

I would not hesitate to recommend his services to others.”

Tim Johnson 

“Mark sold a cask of whisky which I had inherited and did not know what to do with. The offer I got through Mark was much higher than the distillery had offered me and the whole process was simple and best of all, profitable!

He explained all of the steps I needed to take in a straightforward manner and no question was too small for him to answer. Well recommended.”

“Mark sold a barrel of Springbank for me – he is very attentive, always responds quickly, and kept me informed throughout the process, and achieved a very pleasing sale price. 

Selling a barrel is quite slow and administratively fiddly, so having someone like Mark who knows the process is useful, not just to find a willing buyer but to nurse the transaction along as well.”

Neil Holden

“I approached Mark with some trepidation about the sale of a cask of whisky having no idea how to sell it. Mark is eminently knowledgeable about the resale process and before long had secured a very good offer.

I was very impressed with the way Mark communicated during the process, he kept me up to date with regular calls and dealt with all the legal aspects of the sale.

Well worth a five star rating and I would not hesitate to use Mark\’s services again.”

The History of the Aberfeldy Distillery

Originally established in 1896 by John Dewar & Sons Ltd, the Aberfeldy Distillery was opened in 1898. Located on Aberfeldy’s eastern outskirts, the distillery is on the upper Tay’s southern bank. The water source used by the Aberfeldy distillery is the Pitilie Burn that runs close to the distillery. It is the only Scottish distillery to use this water source.

Typical of most of the 19th century blending firms, John Dewar and Sons was an operation run by a man of humble origins who had become a wine merchant and then moved into blending whisky. Although the distillery was founded by John Dewar himself, it was his sons Thomas and John Junior who took the family firm to global recognition.

The site chosen for the distillery was only 2 miles from the birthplace of John Dewar senior, and and had once been a brewery, with some distillation having taken place during the early part of the 19th century. A private railway linked the distillery with the operational hub of the firm in Perth.

In 1925 Dewars became part of DCL and during the First World War the distillery temporarily closed its doors since barley was in demand as a foodstuff. For similar reasons, a second closure took place during the Second World War as barley supplies were cut however supply to markets was maintained by reducing the laid-up period of the whisky to 3 years from 7.

The distillery was extended in 1972 with the old stills being replaced with four brand new stills that were steam heated. In 1998 the ownership changed hands once more when Diageo, which had recently been formed, was forced by the UK Monopolies Board to offload a brand. Bacardi Martini purchased the Dewar’s estate together with ll of its blends for a million pounds.

A 12-year-old single malt was introduced in 1999 and in the following year Dewars World of Whisky was opened by the Earl of Elgin at the Aberfeldy Distillery. This centre markets the products as well as teaching the general public about the distillation process and the Dewar brand history. Aberfeldy remains the major malt whisky component used in Dewar’s Blending Whisky.

Today, the Aberfeldy distillery is still in operation and features two 16,500 litre wash stills and two 15,000 litre capacity spirit stills. These capacities set the distillery right in the middle of the pot still size range. Most recently, although Aberfeldy is primarily used in blends, a small amount has been sold as a single malt. 2014 saw a repackaging campaign and there are plans for a brand new 5 strong permanent range to be launched.
