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

The Highland Park Distillery has an extremely long history dating back to 1798 when it was founded, supposedly by Magnus Eunson. Interestingly, the distillery’s name does not refer to the Scottish Highlands, but in fact refers to the distillery’s location on an area known as High Park.

The origins of this distillery are fairly obscure, and it is unknown whether Magnus Eunson, a famous priest who became a smuggler, founded the brand or whether a farmer called David Robertson was the brainchild behind the operation. However, whatever the truth, the distillery has enjoyed a fascinating history.

It was not until the end of the 19th century that the only distillery in Kirkwall finally achieved any kind of success. During the 1870s it was under the ownership of William Stuart, the owner of Miltonduff, and then it passed on to James Grant, his business partner, in 1885. Grant had once been The Glenlivet’s manager, and he took over completely control in 1895. Grant was also responsible for the expansion of the distillery on two separate occasions, and he also developed a strong working relationship with R&B (Robertson and Baxter).

In 1927, Highland Distillers took over control of the High Park Distillery and now the brand is part of the Edrington Group. In the 1970s, its first 8-year-old single malt appeared, however during the 1980s its packaging went through a revamp and an 18-year-old and a 12 year old expression were also introduced to the range. Soon the distillery had a strong following, which some say has even reached cult status, and the range has continued to expand.

Today, there is not only a core range but also a number of series themed around Norse gods and Orcadian history which have been released. There are several proprietary bottlings of Highland Park, but its special Cappella bottling can only be purchased at the distillery itself.

Highland Park distillery is one of only a handful that malts some of its barley, blending peat cut locally at Hobbister Moor with heather before using it as a fuel. It also holds the distinction of being the only whisky which ever scored a 100% rating by The Scotsman’s tasting team, earning high praise from Michael Jackson, a whisky reviewer.
