Increasingly, for those who want it just so—perhaps a 30-year-old Glenfiddich housed in a refill ex-bourbon cask at the distillery, then reracked in an ex-sherry cask by a specialist broker—the only way to do this is via the specialized world of bespoke spirits.

Scottish whisky broker and independent bottler Cask 88 invited Daniel Lam, Head of Fine Wine and Whisky at Bonhams Hong Kong, who recently made headlines with his sale of two record-breaking bottles of Macallan, and Scotch whisky writer and consultant Charles MacLean to cut the ribbon at the company’s recently opened Edinburgh office, marking the launch of the dedicated Single Cask Whisky Tasting Room.

“Casks are the smartest way of investing in whisky,” explains Patrick Costello, the director of cask sales specialist firm Cask 88. “It would be ideal for corporate events and momentous occasions. Also, as it continues to age and the popularity of whisky grows, making a profit in the future is a given.” Cask 88 has "access to casks from over 40 top distilleries, across all the whisky-producing regions in Scotland." "But instead of simply selling a cask to our clients, we aim to support them through the various stages of the cask-buying process, from selecting a cask and maturing the whisky, to bespoke bottling and labelling." Aside from individual sales, the Cask 88 team supply casks to major hotels and establishments across Europe and Asia, most recently creating a Macallan bottling for the Peninsula Hotel in Shanghai and before that, one for the Galaxy Macau resort.
