Personalised Whisky Barrels


Owning your own barrel is the perfect opportunity for any whisky lover to mature, sample, bottle and share their own personally branded whisky as it ages.

Maturing the perfect whisky in our 200 litre barrels takes time and we understand that not everybody wants to wait that long. So, we have released some of the whisky spirit into 10 and 20 litre barrels for those discerning whisky lovers who would like to invest early.

These barrels are miniature versions of the same casks used for our ageing stock, made from the same wood, treated with the same toast, sourced from the same suppliers and filled with the same single malt New Zealand whisky. It’s all the same, just better because it has your brand and your label and you are in control.

WHAT’S INCLUDED in the price?
The whisky, the barrel, laser etching, your personal label design, barrel stand and tap if you store it yourself, bottling should you choose, storage should you choose, GST and excise tax.

Laser etching takes approximately 3 weeks.
* Maturity of your whisky takes a bit longer!
10 litre barrels – expect 18 -24 months to reach maturity.
20 litre barrels – expect between 2-3 years.

Seems like a silly question but really it’s not.
10 litre barrel will yield approximately 25 – 30  500ml bottles of standard strength whisky.
20 litre barrel will yield approximately 50 – 60   500ml bottles of standard strength whisky.
(Note that yields are not guaranteed and depend on what ABV bottling is done at and how much sampling and sharing has been done!)

10 litre Barrel $1,795
20 litre Barrel $2,995

It’s the perfect gift for a special occasion.
Get a group of friends or relatives together and spoil that special someone.
Remember it’s 10 or 20 litres of 63% Barrel strength whisky.
That’s a lot of whisky!

What’s the process?


1. Place an order for your barrel through the online shop or with the Spirits Workshop Team. Antony will contact you to discuss your personalised label design and the etching process.

2. Upon payment, your cask will be labelled and filled with our finest New Make Single Malt Spirit.

3. You will receive a sample of the new make spirit that has been used to fill your cask along with a certificate of ownership and authenticity.


4. Only after time on the wood will your investment improve. In small barrels the flavour will develop faster so you decide where you want to age your cask. There are two options.

a. Leave your cask stored with us for ageing and request a sample at any time during the ageing process to check on the progress and flavour development of your Whisky. You are welcome to visit the distillery at any time to view or sample your cask directly.

b. We arrange for the entire cask to be delivered to you directly so it is there are your fingertips and you can control the process yourself.


5. You are able to order whatever volume of whisky spirit (up to what remains in your cask), to be bottled at your choice of proof (up to cask strength), labelled with your individual brand and delivered to you at any time during the process.
