A tree planted
worshipping the cask
As a Scotch whisky maturation specialist, we worship the oak cask. We are experts on the subtle dance between oak and maturing spirit, how oak softens the harsher flavours over time, and how vibrant new flavours are slowly alchemised within the quiet darkness of the cask. When we look to the future, we dream of a landscape where Scottish broad oak trees once again stand in great numbers, in community with birch, hazel and pine.
We’re delighted to be working with Trees4Scotland – a local group who are working hard to reforest the native woodlands of Scotland. Every cask of whisky we sell generates a donation towards the work of Trees4Scotland, which funds the planting of new oak trees and the other species needed for a healthy broadleaf forest. We have been working with Trees4Scotland for years and we are thrilled by the progress already made, though many decades hard work is still to be done to realise our shared dream.
These trees will likely never become casks themselves – butas the sight of native oak becomes more common in Scotland over the next 200 - 800years… we may see some more Scotch whiskies matured in locally grown casks as well!
