Lagg Distillery: The Isle of Arran Distillers' casks sales programme is very successful

Only a few casks with new make from the new distillery on offer


Even before the opening of the new Lagg Distillery on the Island of Arran, the owners launched a casks sales programm: whisky fans have since been able to purchase the first casks from the distillery, which started production in spring 2019. Now the sale of these casks with new make of the Lagg Distillery has nearly come to its end: more than 600 of the planned 700 casks have already found buyers, a press release reported this week.

While the unpeated Arran Single Malt Whisky of the Isle of Arran Distillers will furtheron be produced in the Arran Distillery in Lochranza, the smoky products will now be produced in the new Lagg Distillery in the south of the island. Anyone thinking of buying a casks from Lagg Distillery should be aware of that.

Those interested in purchasing a cask can find more information about the programme and the available casks on the Lagg Distillery website.

There you will also find out, among other things, that there are additional privileges associated with the purchase of a casks: casks owners become members of the Lagg Cask Society and will receive, for example, a bottle of the Lagg Single Malt from cask number one when it is bottled as a 10-year-old whisky. The right to play all Arran golf courses is also included in the membership.

It was not least the cask sales programme that provides the Isle of Arran Distillers with a 62% increase in sales, the company reports in its press release, and quotes James MacTaggert, Director of Operations & Production at Lagg Distillery: „It really is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get involved with a distillery right at the very start of its story and to share in a brand-new island adventure with our pioneering whisky company. Purchasing a cask goes much deeper than just the financial benefits and represents an emotional investment, buying into the passionate people on the Isle of Arran that make our whisky and forming a lasting connection – it’s hard to put a price tag on that.”
