BLACKS Brewery & Distillery in Kinsale have launched their Whisky Founders Club and are giving 500 spirit enthusiasts the chance to purchase their own cask, starting from €6,500, which will produce 397 bottles of whisky.
Following their silver medal win at the London Spirits Competition for their renowned gin, husband and wife team of Sam and Maud Black have invested in two copper stills and launched the club which provides an investment opportunity for consumers.
After five years of maturation, members may decide to have their whiskey bottled as their own label whiskey as the ultimate gift, or to sell on the secondary whiskey market.
Alternatively, Blacks are offering an attractive investment buy-back scheme at a predetermined agreed value, offering investors a minimum 4% annually compounded (approx €280 per year per cask) return.
