Cask ownership is a dream for many enthusiasts, and because of the expense often remains a dream. If you can find a group of like minded individuals to form a syndicate you might be able to turn the dream into reality. With stillincask.com you no longer need that syndicate. You can buy a share in a cask direct from the distillery.
When a distillery offers a cask for sale through Still In Cask it is divided into Cask Shares (equating to a bottle of spirit) on the blockchain. When you buy a Cask Share from the distillery, the Shares are automatically transferred to your account. It may take many years, but when the spirit has finished maturing the Cask Share can be redeemed and the bottle containing your Cask Share is sent to you to enjoy.
