Cask Collection

Single cask whisky is at the heart of A. D. Rattray. We go to great lengths to source interesting and unusual casks from the six traditional whisky regions of Scotland. Each distillery represented is different and every cask is unique.

We curate 4 releases of our Cask Collection per year, choosing between 6 and 8 casks for each collection. Our cask are evaluated over time and are selected for inclusion only when we judge they have reached the peak of perfection. 

Once a cask is selected, the spirit is rough filtered, removing any fragments of charred wood left behind by the cask, and then bottled at natural colour and cask strength, with no chill-filtration. There are therefore a limited number of bottles from each cask. 

This process retains the true essence of the distillery character and cask maturation for your enjoyment. 

Latest Release

We are delighted to introduce A. D. Rattray’s 73rd Cask Collection release, a smaller curation of six casks for summer 2024.

Each distillery in Scotland has its own spirit character; the nature of the distillate that runs from its stills. At A. D. Rattray, our aim is to provide a window into that spirit character of a distillery, unravelling the wider narrative to get to the very heart of the distillate.  

Rather than seek to imprint our own identity on a cask, we take a spirit-forward approach to selection and maturation. That’s why our Cask Collection is (stylishly, yet) simply presented at cask strength, with nothing added or taken away at bottling. Especially when employing a finishing cask, we believe the wood should always enhance the spirit, and never conceal quirks. Our aim is not to craft or shape the character of single cask whisky, but simply to allow it to flourish.  

Our selection for Cask Collection 73 demonstrates this ethos, with a strong focus on the spirit, ensuring the fingerprint of each distillate is clearly evident in the liquid. As a bottler, we may be somewhat quiet in the vibrant and boisterous world of Scotch whisky. But with such vivid and characterful single malt spirits distilled throughout Scotland, sometimes it’s best to let others do the talking.
