In August we took delivery of more new oak casks from Italy and ex-bourbon casks from Kentucky. As well as a couple 20 litre casks for private customers.
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%. These two styles of rum should mature nicely into two very different complex, unique rums. Which will be released at either 3, 5, 8, 12 years old or older.
We were lucky enough to have Scott van Schayk of
https://www.scottvsphoto.co.uk helping us in the distillery and shop 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. Check out his website for more of his work, you can also purchase prints of his Scottish landscape photography directly from his website.
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. In addition to the 20L casks we also offer 100L rejuvenated oak and 200L ex bourbon casks, with other cask varieties i.e. chestnut, ex red wine, etc available on request. Please get in touch for more info on these.
