Yes, we are offering either our Single Malt or Single Pot Still Whiskey casks only, and you may choose the Alcohol by Volume (ABV) percentage.

Single Pot Still Irish whiskey is made from a combination of malted and unmalted barley as well as other cereals such as oats and rye, distilled in a pot still within a single distillery.
Ex-bourbon means that the barrel has been used to distil bourbon, but this is the first time these casks have been used to mature Irish Whiskey, thereby having a much greater influence on the spirit in terms of both flavour and colour.

Based on an ABV of 40%, you could expect to receive 410 x 700 ml bottles of whiskey.
Based on an ABV of 40%, and yielding approx. 410 bottles of whiskey, the cost per bottle is €20.79, exclusive of Taxes & VAT: local duties may apply at your destination; we recommend independent advice.
Full payment is due upon receipt of your order form.
If I am a foreign purchaser of a cask (i.e. U.S. purchaser), can I pay the equivalent of €7,500 in my home country’s currency?
We accept $ checks, € checks, as well as electronic transfers. The price of the cask is €7,500 or the US $ equivalent of €7,500 at a particular point in time. KDC is an Irish company that conducts business in €. Our financial projections are based on € projections, so we cannot take on foreign currency risk. If you are paying by US cheque, the cask price will be determined every other Monday morning in perpetuity and will stay in effect for the following 2 weeks after each $ cask price change. The $ cask price will be determined by the prevailing €/$ FX rate on that Monday. Thus, every other Monday there could be a different $ price for the casks, while the €7,500 price will remain constant. If you are paying electronically, it is the responsibility of the purchaser to pay the total amount of €7,500 exclusive of any bank fees and charges associated with the transaction. Each bank operates differently, but usually banks will endeavour to exchange your foreign currency into € using daily FX rates as a guidepost. Note that there may be a built-in fee associate with the FX rate they charge you, as witnessed in most FX buy/sale transactions.
The rates are set by the Irish Revenue Commissioners based on the percentage of pure alcohol. If investors choose to export the product (your whiskey must ship, in either drum or bottle form, under bond to your country where it should be received into bond), no Excise Duty will be paid in Ireland. Local duties may apply at your destination, we recommend independent advice.
The cost is €2.50 approx. per 700ml bottle.
Yes, you can. This is a great option for bar/restaurant/hotel owners, corporate gifts, or anyone who just wants their own signature whiskey. Bottles will all carry Killarney Distilling Company as the source distillery and include your personal cask number to prove its origin.
No, all yields shown in our calculations are approximate.
Upon receipt of payment, we will seek to deliver keepsakes as fast as we can. Keep in mind if you live overseas there can be shipping delays that last months or more.
Yes, after year 3 of maturation, you will be entitled to visit and to take a 200ml sample from the cask. We need 30 days notice, and you must visit the distillery to obtain your 200ml sample. Becoming directly involved with, and gaining a deeper understanding of whiskey maturation, product development, and release are some of the key (and rewarding) reasons people invest in cask programmes.
It is our intention to mature the First Fill casks for 5 years, therefore, we anticipate delivery to be in the second half of 2027.
KBD does not place restrictions on your cask, you may sell it to any buyer you wish. We can give you some guidance.
