The Dingle Distillery, has announced the launch of a new cask programme, which will give whiskey lovers a rare chance of owning their very own cask.
The Descendants Cask Programme, is launching with the sale of 100 full barrels of spirit, which will be distilled before the end of the year.

As part of the programme, buyers will also be able to decide how long their personalised whiskey will age in the barrels and will have the choice of bottling it in 8 years’ time or leaving it to mature for up to 21 years, or even longer.
Only four casks are produced daily in Dingle Distillery, each one overseen by Master Distiller Graham Coull, and the casks will rest in the Distillery warehouse under his watchful eye to mature for a minimum of eight years.
Buyers can choose from Port, Bourbon or Sherry (Oloroso or PX) first-fill casks, which will be filled with new make spirit distilled at the Dingle, Co. Kerry, based distillery.
Each personalised cask comes with a certificate of ownership, insurance, annual deliveries of the latest single malt release, sample cask tastings, unlimited tour access of the Distillery with a guest as well as a 15% discount in the distillery shop and website.
Commenting on the news, Graham Coull, Master Distiller at Dingle Distillery, said: “Every aspect of our process is manual from the mashing in, to the addition of yeast and the cutting of the heads and tails of our spirit. Our natural water is supplied 240 ft below the Distillery, making the journey from water to grain a short one. At Dingle Distillery we take our time hand filling only four casks each day. I will personally oversee every step of your cask’s journey, including that first cask sample, to your finished bottle, whether that’s eight years from now, 12 or 21.”
Cask prices start at €10,000, and come with an optional payment plan. For full details, visit: dingledistillery.ie/descendants
