Caol Ila 2012 Ruby Port Barrique
Caol Ila - "The sound of Islay" - a classic Islay spirit and a fan-favourite distillery that has seen a huge spike in prices over the last few years. It's very hard to find a reasonably priced Caol Ila cask these days, and this is reflected in the lack of, and price of, it's independent expressions.
Nonetheless, we've picked up this incredible 12 year old example, finished for over a year in a first-fill ruby port barrique, at a price that'll allow us to get it on the shelves for under £100!
Caol Ila lovers out there, when was the last time you saw a port finished 12?
...I'll wait 😉
Distilled in January 2012 and re-racked into the port cask in November 2022, we'll be bottling this as a Glaschu Spirits Co core release in February 2024.
We were overwhelmed with the response to our last cask share project, so we're once again offering our fans the chance to become a part of Glaschu Spirits Co history - help us release a stellar single malt and you can make a pretty penny in return.
As we'll be bottling this one in a much shorter time frame, we're doing things slightly different this time. Instead of the 12.5% per annum return over ~24 months, we're offering a 15% return over ~12 months.
Each share will be worth £500 and will be paid back once all of the bottles have been sold out. Including interest, that's a total of £575 paid back per share. Based on our track record, we're estimating this to be achievable in less than 12 months after bottling.
Each share purchased comes with a share certificate, signed by both DamGoodCompany Ltd and the purchaser. This guarantees the purchaser their initial payment, plus the agreed return.
The total cost for this bottling project is £13,000.00 and is thus limited to a total number of 26 shares accumulating to this value.
