Whisky Hammer to auction first 50 casks of BrewDog whisky

Earlier this year, BrewDog opened its brand-new standalone distillery with a climate-controlled warehouse capable of holding nearly 1,000 casks.

Commenting on the news, Daniel Milne, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Whisky Hammer, said: “We’re thrilled to be able to partner with BrewDog to help auction off the first-ever casks from their new distillery. BrewDog is synonymous with quality, award-winning beer, so it’s an exciting prospect to be able to help them launch a whisky that is as bold as its IPA. With only 50 casks available, we’re expecting a lot of interest.”

The 50 BrewDog whisky casks will go live on Whisky Hammer’s auction website at 19:00 on Wednesday 7th December, with the sale running until Sunday 11th December.
