Auchentoshan Cask Values & Valuations

Auchentoshan is one of the few distilleries that use a triple distillation and this sets casks of Auchentoshan apart from most other casks of single malt whisky on the market. As a result prices for casks of Auchentoshan are strong. Not many casks of Auchentoshan are in private ownership however, so if you are lucky enough to own a cask you the returns could be very good (depending on the ABV and RLA of course).

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

The most desirable Auchentoshan casks are fresh fill sherry oak casks, however, refill sherry casks are also in demand. Bourbon casks (quite common at Auchentoshan) 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. 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.”

The History of Auchentoshan Distillery

Taking its name from the Gaelic language and meaning Of The Field, the Auchentoshan distillery is located in the west of the country, producing high quality single malt. Sometimes known as Glasgow’s malt whisky, the distillery is close to the city, and its whisky is sometimes called “the breakfast whisky” thanks to its delicate and sweet nature.

Originally, legalised whisky making began on the Clyde’s banks in 1817 when John Bulloch built the Duntocher distillery. Like most early whisky start ups, this distillery had a troubled early history, with Bulloch going bankrupt early in its development. However, his grandson was the co-founder of Bulloch Lade, one of the most well-known broking and blending firms of the 19th century.

In 1834, Alexander Filshie and John Hart purchased the distillery and it was at this time that its name was changed to Auchintoshan. In 1875 they sold the distillery on to a grain merchant from the local area and this led to it being passed between a number of owners for several years. In 1941, one of the distillery’s warehouses was hit by a bomb and sent blazing whisky streaming into the river. However, this tragedy was turned into a positive since a bomb crater is now the distillery pond.

Tennants, a Glasgow based company, owned the distillery between 1960 and 1969 when it was then sold on to Eadie Cairns, a publican, at which time it was completely rebuilt. In 1984 the distillery was then sold on to Morrison Bowmore distillers and a few years later in 1989, Suntory invested in the brand, going on to acquire all of its holdings in 1994. Suntory Holdings Ltd merged with Beam Inc in 2014 creating Beam Suntory Inc and this company now own the Auchentoshan distillery along with other Morrison Bowmore holdings.

Somewhat unusual for Scottish distilleries, the Auchentoshan distillery uses triple distillation with a third still called the Intermediate Still helping to boost the final spirit’s strength up to 81% ABV.It also helps to give the whisky a sweeter and more delicate flavour than most other Scotch whiskies. Usually maturation takes place in ex-sherry butts and ex-bourbon barrels, however some mature in ex French wine casks.

Periodically there are releases of special bottlings. The oldest of these was distilled in 1957 and was released in 200.

This distillery is still in operation and boasts its own visitors centre as well as conference facilities both of which were finished in 2005. Public tours take place every day of the week. Auchentoshan’s whiskies have traditionally performed well in competitions with both its 18 year old and 16 year old scotches having been awarded double gold at the San Francisco World Spirits competition in 2008.
