Final chance to purchase an original cask from Lagg Distillery

The Isle of Arran distillery is selling the remainder of its first-fill casks
Lagg Distillery has announced that this is the last chance to buy one of its original casks. Each first-fill ex-bourbon barrel contains an earthy, peated spirit that Lagg intends to make the staple of its single malt in the years to come.

Buying a cask results automatically in membership of the Lagg Cask Society, with benefits including your name on the Wall of Fame within the distillery and a bottle from the very first cask ever filled at Lagg, a 10-year-old single malt.

Lagg Distillery started distilling in April 2019, and between May and October 2019, the distillery went on to fill a total of 700 casks for their Lagg Cask Society members.

Graham Omand, master distiller at Lagg Distillery, said, “Of the 700 initial casks, nearly all have now been secured, and we are holding the very last available casks without owners! So, if you have been thinking about a purchase, now is a great time to get in touch. By purchasing one of our first-fill casks, you will become a key part of the history of Lagg Distillery and over the years you will be able to watch your cask mature and sample it annually.”

Stuart Hamilton, Lagg cask owner, added, “The team at Lagg have a great whisky provenance and their passion for what they do is clear and infectious as soon as you meet them. Doing this [i.e. owning a cask] as a family gives us a reason to come together from the various parts of the world that we live in, and it is a reminder of happy memories and something for the family and the younger generations to look forward to."
