Cask Trade

Cask Trade is the first real and trustworthy marketplace for trading exceptional whisky casks.

Founded in 2018 by Simon Aron in partnership with several of the world’s foremost whisky masters, including Keeper of the Quaich Sir Colin Hampden-White, Cask Trade is unique because it only sells casks it owns outright, and it only sells whole casks: it is not a whisky cask broker and it does not offer fractional sales.

Launch of Cask Trade

October 2019 saw the launch of Cask Trade – the first real and trustworthy marketplace for trading single malt whisky casks.

The Launch

Whisky experts, bottlers, collectors and journalists came together for the launch of Cask Trade at 67 Pall Mall, London.

Guests heard a presentation on whisky investment by the owner, Simon Aron, before a tasting of six cask strength whiskies.

All of the tasted whiskies were in casks owned by Cask Trade including Glenlivet 1978 and Aberlour 1989. The tasting was given by Keeper of the Quaich Sir Colin Hampden-White and the world’s leading authority on whisky Charlie MacLean.

The Results

Since the launch features have appeared in almost 20 titles including The Times, Money Week, Gentleman’s Journal, The Spirits Business, The Scottish Field and Whisky Intelligence.
