A Rich History
Annandale Distillery boasts a rich history of traditional whisky production dating back to 1836, making it one of Scotland’s oldest distilleries. From 1895 it was owned by the world famous Johnnie Walker whisky company until its closure in 1918.
Annandale Distillery has now been reborn – in November 2014 it started producing Scotch whisky once again. Never before has a distillery reopened after such a long closure, making Annandale extremely unique.

What We Offer Private Cask Owners
Certificate of Ownership
After purchasing a cask, the owner is presented with a personalised Annandale Distillery Cask Owner’s Certificate. The whisky is allowed to mature in the Annandale Distillery warehouse under bond for at least 10 years where it is tended by the whisky distillery team.
A VIP Cask Owner tour will be arranged on Cask Owner’s Day where a 10% discount in Annandale’s coffee shop and shop will apply on the day of the visit.
Other visits can be arranged by appointment during the maturation of your whisky where owners can see their private cask of whisky. Please bear in mind that Annandale is a working distillery so appointments are subject to our operational requirements.
Cask samples are available on request (charge applies) and may be sent internationally although there may be international restrictions in some countries and duty may be payable. Owners are responsible for clearing the sample through customs and pay duty as appropriate.
Bottling and Shipping
After 10 years, the master distiller will be able to advise the owner when the cask is ready for bottling. At this point final payment will be due which will include Excise Duty, bottling and labelling costs, and VAT (Value Added Tax). Payment must be made before the cask can be removed from bond.
The cask will be hand bottled in its entirety into standard bottles with a label design provided by Annandale. If an owner would prefer an alternative bottle or label design it must be agreed by in writing by Annandale and we will do our best to accommodate all reasonable suggestions. However labelling must comply with the prevailing legislation.
When the bottles are ready for collection, this should be arranged and paid for by the owner after making the necessary arrangements with Annandale. If an owner would like Annandale to organise delivery this may be possible depending on the country of destination. The wooden cask remains the property of Annandale.
