Cask88 releases collection of rare Scottish whisky for sale worldwide

Published 06 October 2016

Cask88 has released its collection of rare Scottish whisky for sale globally.

A private collection of over 100 rare bottles of Scottish whisky is now for sale with additional bottles being added daily. These rare and exclusive bottles can be purchased online with worldwide shipping.

The milestone marks the first time such an extensive private whisky collection has been available for sale through an online e-commerce store.  

Collectors, investors and whisky enthusiasts will appreciate the hand-curated collection which includes some of the most coveted bottles in the world.

The effort was spearheaded by Cask88 executives in an effort to bring a wider selection of rare bottles to the online community. 

With the industry consumed by increasing commercialization, Cask88 offers the opportunity to experience the historical artistry and craftsmanship that has establishedScotland's reputation as the de facto standard of whisky.

Included in the collection is an expansive selection of bottles from "silent distilleries" so-called because they no longer distill their once-prized spirits. 

Over 40 bottles from the Port Ellen and Brora Distilleries are available for sale.  Both of these highly respected distilleries have been closed since 1983 making them increasingly rare and highly sought collectibles.  Other notable distilleries represented in the collection include Macallan, Bowmore, Glenlivet and Highland Park.

Cask88 director Patrick Costello  "This collection is a rare window into the past, offering the chance to taste whisky that has formed the backbone of Scottish Whisky today.  

"It's with great pride that we can offer the opportunity to experience other eras of whisky including releases from distilleries that have now fallen silent."

The collection is available exclusively online. Bottles range in price from £100.00 to over £9,000.00.  Over 400 additional bottles will be added to the collection over the next 30 days.
