Casks of Rum Purchasing Rare Rum By The Cask

Back to news

It’s every rum aficionado’s dream, to own their very own cask of rum. The sheer satisfaction of owning a cask from one of your dearest distilleries, savouring the pleasure of watching your liquid slowly mature, and knowing that you’ve got something here that’s really special – after all, every cask is truly unique.

Whether you want to own a piece of history from your favourite distillery, invest in something you’re passionate about or simply diversify your investment portfolio, premium rum is definitely an attractive proposal. And, it's really not surprising in light of recent articles from the likes of Forbes which report sales of premium and ultra-premium rum are growing rapidly and impressively (Last year premium-and-above rum volumes went up 28% in France alone). As reports show that old, rare and collectible rums are most definitely a trend to watch, perhaps now is a good time to look at what is on offer.

A number of rum enthusiasts are also purchasing casks, not for the financial incentives but for consumption. Family members and work colleagues clubbing together to share the enjoyment of owning a cask, or having something to bottle for a special gifting occasion or commemorate a special birth or anniversary year.

The process of buying a rum cask may seem daunting, however, armed with the right information it is actually a very accessible and exciting opportunity. For more information, check out our step-by-step guide on things to consider when buying rum casks.
