Bourbon casks and oak casks

In August we took delivery of more new oak casks and ex-bourbon casks.

200L Ex-Bourbon casks from Kentucky.

We checked the casks and prepared them ready for filling. We filled them with HD (heavy dunder) rum at 58% or DS (double stripped) rum at 63.5%.

The smell from filling the casks was truly amazing. Once filled the bungs were inserted and the casks were ready to be laid down for several years.

Photography

We were lucky enough to have Scott van Schayk of
https://www.scottvsphoto.co.uk helping us for a few weeks. It made sense to get him to take some photos. As well as taking the photos of the cask filling above, he also took these stunning reflection images of our rums.

Private Casks

As shown above we are now also able to offer 20L casks in our Private Cask Offer these will age for less time than the larger casks on offer, but will still give you the chance to have your own private label rum. Please get in touch for more info on these.
