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. S

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.”

Ardbeg Whisky History

With a name that has been derived from the Scottish Gaelic words for Small Promontory, Ardbeg Whisky has a long and illustrious history which dates all the way back to the late 18th century.

The Ardbeg distillery is located in Ardbeg on the isle of Islay, in Argyll & Bute in the Inner Hebrides. Owned by Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy, this distillery is known for produced a peaty Islay whisky using malted barley which has been sourced from maltings in Port Ellen.

Having been producing fine whisky since 1798, the Ardbeg distillery started its commercial production a few years into the 19th century, in 1815. For much of its long history, similar to most other Scottish distilleries, it produced whisky to be used in blended whiskies, instead of as a single malt. By the end of the 19th century, the distillery was producing an impressive 300,000 gallons of whisky every year and had 60 workers.

In 1981, production temporarily came to a halt, however in 1989 it resumed once more, albeit on a limited basis, and went on at a low level until 1997 when the distillery was finally purchased and then reopened by Glenmorangie Plc. Full production resumed a year later and the distillery has continued to thrive ever since.

Ardbeg’s whiskies have earned a number of highly regarded awards over recent years, including the Whisky Bible 2008 award for Scotch Single Malt of the Year and World Whisky of the Year for the Tens Years Old expression. Ardbeg Galileo also won the category of World’s Best Single Malt Whisky at the World Whiskies Awards in 2013.

Ardbeg distillery has participated in numerous interesting marketing campaigns andtakes part every summer in Islay’s festival of music and malt whisky, Feis Ile. In 2011, there were 20 vials of Ardbeg sent up to the ISS (International Space Station) to see how they interacted. They returned to Earth 3 years later.

Interestingly, there are numerous cultural references to the Ardbeg distillery. In 2003, Ardbeg inspired Osmo Tapio Raihala, a Finnish contemporary music composer, to compose a symphonic poem which was then recorded in 2011 and offered for sale in 2014. It has also featured in several TV series and movies, with John Constantine, played by Keanu Reeves, drinking Ardbeg in the movie Constantine in 2005. Harry Pearce, a character in the BBC TV series Spooks, is also seen regularly drinking the whisky.
