Managing director Stuart Nickerson said: “To our great delight demand for the Octave casks has rather taken us by surprise, with the 100th cask sale approaching fast. We’ve had persistent requests for larger cask sizes and types, hence the development of the 250 Club which, we think, offers the widest range of cask type of any comparable scheme and, unlike others, guarantees that future bottling costs are included in the price. The 250 Club is thus unique.”
The Glenglassaugh 250 Club cask programme offers a range of cask types and sizes from first-fill ex-Bourbon barrels (approx 190 litres) at £2,500 to Port pipes (approx 580 litres) at £6,500. All prices include 10 years storage, insurance, a range of gifts and privileges for owners and pre-payment of bottling charges. All duties and taxes will still have to be paid.
