Annandale Distillery released its first Gardner Portfolio in late 2020. Named in honour of John Sykes Gardner who operated Annandale from 1883 -1893, the Gardner Unpeated Cask Portfolio has proved to be extremely popular. The latest Gardner Portfolio comprises of 10 carefully selected casks, embracing a variety of ‘wood types’ at different stages of maturity. All ten casks are filled with award-winning unpeated spirit made here at Annandale Distillery.
The Gardner Portfolio is divided into 15 equal shares. Each Portfolio share is priced at £3,300. Starting in late Autumn and every year thereafter for a total of 10 years, one of the 10 casks will be bottled. As a shareholder, you’ll receive a 1/15th share of the yield of bottles from that cask, typically ~20 x 70cl bottles of Single Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky at cask strength.
Every year, these unique bottles of Scotch Whisky are delivered to Portfolio shareholders in early December, in good time for Christmas, Hogmanay and Burns Night (25th January). If you’re willing to part with one of your precious Portfolio bottles, they make exclusive gifts for your whisky enthusiast friends and relatives.
