Spirits Network Launches A Private Cask Program

Spirits Network, a digital streaming platform for spirits enthusiasts, announced it will offer 1,000 private Scotch whisky casks in partnership with The Borders Distillery of Scotland. 

The casks of the new American Cask program come with a Non-Fungible Token, or NFT, that will feature an image of The Borders Distillery or the surrounding area of the Scottish Borders. This NFT entitles each cask owner to a bottle from the first ever bottling of Borders Distillery Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Once the product is ready, the Borders Distillery spirit will be bottled and shipped to American Cask customers.

 “We are delighted to partner with Spirits Network for this one-of-a-kind offer. There is great interest in owning your own cask to celebrate anniversaries, graduations, engagements, and special moments. Spirits Network is bringing the Borders Distillery to America, a first,” John Fordyce, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Borders Distillery, said in a prepared statement.

To sign up for the program, customers create an account with Spirits Network. One cask is $3,600 and it can be filled in Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter. All of the data regarding the NFT is stored in the United States and all payments are made in the United States. 

“During this time when so many are striving to become more involved in owning or making their own spirits, we are thrilled to partner with the renowned Borders Distillery to offer this exclusive experience to Spirits Network members,” Nick Buzzell, Spirits Network CEO, said.

After the cask is filled, owners will have access to an exclusive app where proprietary technology allows them to track the evolution of their cask. They can also visit the Distillery to design a personalized label. The distillery estimates each cask will yield between 240 and 270 bottles of 70cl at 92% proof.
