BECOME A

CAPTAIN

Become the Captain of your whiskey’s journey by creating your own cask of either Australian single-malt or sour-mash whiskey, aged in your choice of a new American oak cask or an Australian ex-wine cask.

To achieve the highest-quality whiskey, we leave the spirit in your 20L cask for approx. 2.5 years. At 12 months, you will receive a 350ml sample drawn from your cask.

This allows you to monitor the maturation process and experience your whiskey as the flavour develops. Once your whiskey has reached maturation, your whiskey will then be bottled at your chosen ABV and labelled as Shipyard Distillery’s Captain’s Selection, with your name and cask title listed on each bottle.

Your unique whiskey will be presented to you with your cask and certificate of authenticity. You’ll also receive the Shipyard Ageing Kit, allowing you to experience the process of ageing whiskey at home.
