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.

\n

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.

\n

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!

\n

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

\n

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..\”

\n

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.

\n

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.

\n

Well worth a five star rating and I would not hesitate to use Mark\’s services again.\”

The History of the Talisker Distillery

\n

Originally founded by Kenneth and Hugh MacAskill in 1830, the Talisker Distillery was finally constructed at Carbost in 1831 following several false starts at a number of other sites. The brothers were a pair of Clearance landlords who forcibly removed the tenant farmers from their farms and moved them to new settlements at Portnalong and Carbost.Not content with simply replacing the farmers with sheep, the MacAskill’s also saw distilling as a money-making scheme, and they used the cleared tenant farmers as their distillery workforce.

\n

Unfortunately for the brothers, their whisky making venture failed and the bank took control of operations in 1848. For the following 30 years, the Talisker distillery passed through the hands of several owners, all of whom struggled to make a success of such a remote distillery.

\n

However, the fortunes of the Talisker brand underwent a change in 1880 when Alexander Allen and Roderick Kemp took over the distillery and expanded it, constructing a distillery pier rather than relying on floating out the casks to waiting ships.

\n

In 1892, Kemp sold on his share and in 1895, when Allen died, Thomas Mackenzie, his business partner, took control. Talisker merged formally with Dailuaine in 1898 and then in 1916, following Mackenzie’s death, John Walker and Sons, W P Lowrie, DCL and John Dewar took over control of the distillery. To this day, Talisker has stayed in this group since all of the firms eventually merged, morphing into Diageo. The distillery was burned in 1960 and remained silent for two years before being rebuilt. Ten years later, its maltings shut down as the distillery started to obtain its requirements from Glen Ord.

\n

For a long time Talisker has been available in the form of a single malt, mostly as an 8-year-old expression. Its age was upped to 10 years in 1998 when it was a founding member of the Classic Malts Selection, giving the brand greater prominence. In 2004 an 18-year-old expression joined the Talisker range and since 2008 there has been a dramatic expansion when four no age statement whiskies were added to the collection. Today, Talisker is one of the key single malt Diageo brands.

\n

Talisker has been named as the favourite tipple of many well-known figures including, most prominently authors HV Morton and Robert Louis Stephenson. Stephenson even mentions Talisker in one of his poems.
