Details of the Offer

We're thrilled to offer you the unique opportunity to be a part of the Backwoods' story by owning a cask of whisky crafted with care and dedication.

Choose between our award-winning single malt or rye spirit, and select your preferred cask type. Your selected spirit will be expertly handcrafted and carefully matured within our private bond store. As part of this unique offer, you're invited to visit our bond store and inscribe a handwritten name or note on your barrel.

After a patient maturation period of 2-3 years, overseen by the Backwoods' Founders, your whisky will reach its peak flavour profile. At this stage, we'll bottle your whisky with personalised labels.

This is your chance to become a part of the Backwoods family. As an independent, family-owned distillery, we take pride in crafting exceptional whisky and sharing the joy of ownership with enthusiasts like you. Join us in the excitement of patiently waiting for your custom whisky to mature, ready to be shared and savored with friends and family.

There is a limited number of private casks available for this first round offer. Secure your spot now to be among the fortunate few to own a piece of Backwoods legacy.
