CASK TRADE CELEBRATES 5TH ANNIVERSARY WITH CHARITY BOTTLING IN SUPPORT OF THE DRINKS TRUST


To commemorate its 5th anniversary, Cask Trade hope to raise £10,000 for The Drinks Trust by selling bottles of cask-strength whisky in aid of the charity.

The cask whisky company has bottled 200 bottles from 2 barrels of 2015 single malt Scotch whisky from The Speyside Distillery.

Cask Trade has celebrated many milestones since its inception five years ago including the opening of an office in Asia, and the launch of Auction Your Cask and Regent Street Cask Bottlers.

CEO and Founder of Cask Trade Simon Aron says a lot has happened in what has been an extraordinary time for cask whisky. “The cask trading sector has changed immeasurably from when I started Cask Trade five years ago,” says Simon, who adds: “There are now ten times more cask traders, a thousand more independent bottlers and cask whisky has become truly global in this relatively short space of time.

“The variety and choice of casks available has risen dramatically and people’s tastes have changed as they become exposed to different distilleries and styles of whisky available to them in bottles bought from specialist shops and drunk in bars around the world,” he explains.

Simon says he is delighted to support The Drinks Trust. “I think it’s important to support our industry and the people who work within it. The financial help, training and wellbeing programmes offered by The Drinks Trust are a much-needed lifeline to the drinks industry.”

The special charity bottling will be unveiled at Cask Trade’s anniversary party at Watches of Switzerland later this month (June). It is also available to purchase via website priced at £85 per bottle.

Chief Executive for The Drinks Trust, Ross Carter, says: “Our work with donors, Cask Trade amongst them, is rapidly evolving and helping to deliver vital funds and services for our beneficiaries, whilst also helping businesses achieve CSR goals. These partnerships help the industry as a whole and elevate the profile of the charity so that it can continue to expand its reach and impact.”
