1 Speyside 1996 Hogshead #49 / Cask in storage at Inver House

This single hogshead of single malt whisky from the Speyside distillery was filled in 1996 and has since been slowly and carefully maturing at Inver House Distillers.

Cask #49 was re-gauged on 26 November 2018.

  • New Bulk 148 Litre
  • Regauged litres of alcohol 78.4
  • Strength 53.0%

All relevant paperwork will accompany this purchase. Ownership of the cask will be transferred once payment is processed post auction. Any costs relating to storage, removal from storage, bottling and duty/tax payments will become the responsibility of the new owner.

The cask is currently held in Inver House Warehouse #13 (26A). Storage fees are paid for the calendar year of 2018, and will be due again by the time the auction closes. The storage charge for 2018 was £26.07.

An administration fee of £30 will be payable to Inver House, by the buyer, for the transfer of ownership of the cask.

Please note if the new owner is a UK revenue trader (business), they will need to be registered with HMRC and hold a WOWGR certificate.

If they are a revenue trader outside the UK, they will need to have a Duty Representative in the UK (the Duty Rep would be registered with HMRC and there is usually an annual charge for their services)
