Convalmore Cask Values & Valuations

Convalmore casks are like hens teeth – so if you own one you are very lucky indeed. Most of Convalmore’s output was destined for blends and there were no official releases of a Convalmore single malt before the collapse of the distillery in 1985.

However, there are a few casks of Convalmore in private ownership and as a result there have been several private releases of casks of Convalmore. If you own a cask of Convalmore then you can rest happy knowing that if the figures for your cask are good we are likely to have dozens of VERY interested buyers prepared to make an offer.

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

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

Cask Selling FAQ

The History of the Convalmore Distillery

The Convalmore Distillery was constructed by the Convalmore-Glenlivet Distillery Company Ltd in 1894 at the height of the whisky boom. Most of the brand-new distilleries which were constructed during this late 19th century period were planned and designed by Charles Doig, however a local architect called Donald Mackay was the planner and designer for Convalmore.

The Convalmore-Glenlivet Distillery Co. Ltd ran the Convalmore distillery successfully for around 10 years, however due to Scottish whisky being over-produced the industry’s bubble burst and the distillery was sold in 1904 to W&P Lowrie & Company Ltd for just £6000. One year later James Buchanan and Co. Ltd bought the distillery, however a huge fire destroyed a large part of the distillery in 1909 causing it to be rebuilt.

When James Buchanan & Co Ltd rebuilt the distillery, they decided to make an experimental operation, using continuous distillation so they could produce malt whisky via the same methods as grain whisky – a method known as “silent malt”. James Buchanan & Co installed a column still that had a 2.273 litre per hour capacity as well as their existing pair of pot stills. However, clearly this experiment was not successful since the column still was then removed just a few years later in 1916.

Convalmore Distillery was then sold in 1935 to DCL (Distillers Company Ltd) which later became known as United Distillers/Diageo. This started a period of relative constancy for the distillery, only disrupted by a period of modernisation in 1962 and again in 1975. In 1962, the old pot stills which were coal fired were replaced and new steam heated ones were put in their place. In 1964, the number of spirit stills and wash stills were doubled and these four pot stills were then in use until the time the distillery was mothballed.

The period of constancy was shortlived for the distillery since in 1985 whisky production on this site was mothballed. United Distillers sold the site and its buildings in 1990 to William Grant and Sons, who still use the buildings today as warehouses. Therefore, although distilling is unlikely to ever take place again on the original Convalmore site, it can be said that the distillery has survived in some form to this present day. Also, since the license which permits the selling of Convalmore whisky remains in the hands of Diageo, so it is still possible that the brand could re-emerge at some future time.
