Glenury Royal Cask Values & Valuations

Glenury Royal is one of the few distilleries that command the Royal title in their name. For a distillery held with such high regard prices for casks of Glenury Royal are high and are very sought after. There are also very few casks of Glenury Royal in private ownership so they appear on the market very infrequently – in fact the last time a cask of Glenury Royal was independently bottled was in 2014.

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

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

Apparently, a distillery stood on the Ury estate from the early 1820s, having been established in an effort to eradicate illicit distillation by the Duke of Gordon. This structure was destroyed by fire, however it is unknown whether or not this was a result of arson, whether it was actually an accident. Whatever the truth of the matter, in 1823, the Excise Act was passed which paved the way for the modern Scottish whisky industry to be established.

A couple of years later it is believed that Captain Robert Barclay, the then Laird of Ury, constructed a distillery of his own. Barclay was well known at the time as a friend of the royals, a notorious gambler and improving agriculturalist. He named the distillery after the glen which runs through the district however just a few weeks after it opened, there was a serious fire, and then two weeks after that a worker died in a boiler incident.

He owned the distillery until he died in 1854 and in 1858 it was sold on to William Ritchie. Ritchie’s descendants then operated the Glenury Royal Distillery until 1938 when Joseph Hobbs purchased it for the UK’s arm of the National Distillers of America, Train & Macintyre. The Glenury Royal distillery was then operated as the head office of the portfolio of T&M’s Associated Scottish Distilleries.

There was very little whisky produced under this owner and during the Second World War it closed its doors. In 1953, this Scottish venture of the NDA was brought to a close, just before a huge boost in the American whisky market.

Glenury Royal distillery was then purchased by DCL who expanded the operation and doubled its capacity during the 1960s. Its maltings were closed in 1968 but the distillery continued to produce malt whisky for close to two decades more, however in the 1980s, this distillery too fell prey to the whisky crisis that hit Scotland. 1985 signalled the beginning of the end for this distillery when it was mothballed.

Whisky stopped being produced at the Glenury Royal Distillery for good in 1992 when its owners finally decided to call it a day.  It land was sold off in 1993 for housing while its distillery buildings were knocked down signalling the end for this distillery.

In 2003, 498 bottles of 50-year-old Glenury Royal were released by Diageo as an official bottling, and in 2005, another limited release of a 36-year-old bottling was also made. There were only 2100 bottles in this batch.
