AGE YOUR OWN

People are fast discovering the exceptional quality of whisky coming from this small island. Whether it be the pristine water ways or fresh air Tasmania is fast becoming renowned for their award winning ‘Water of Life’.

Here at Old Kempton we are offering people the opportunity to purchase and fill their very own Tasmanian whisky barrel- whether you want to share with friends, have your own whisky collection made just for you or just enjoy a personalised whisky. We have hand crafted our barley spirit in our heritage coach house, ready to fill your own 20L, 50L or 100L barrel.

Please visit our online store for pricing, Terms & Conditions or to make a purchase. ZIPPAY is available!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

We will carefully fill your selected cask with Old Kempton’s handcrafted single malt spirit, made using only Tasmanian barley and water. Our cask’s are selected and reconditioned by our local cooperage (depending on barrel type), only 15 minutes south of the distillery. Cask types include; port, pinot noir, bourbon and many others. We love to try new things so don’t hesitate to ask if you have any ideas or questions about cask types.

A 20L cask, after maturing for over two years in our old stables bond store, can expect to produce anywhere between 22 – 30 bottles (at cask strength) or 30 – 40 bottles at 46% alc (Our whisky is released in 500mL bottles).

You are invited to fill your own cask and visit it during its maturation to monitor the development, but we ask you to please book your visit so we can assure there will be a distiller on site to assist you. Before your whisky is ready to be released you will be required to pay government excise, bottling, labelling and shipping (if you require).

There are no hidden fees, you can visit and taste your cask as often as you like and even sign your cask – the cask is yours to keep at the end of maturation or it can be refilled at a discounted rate.

Looking for an easier way to pay? We offer ZIPPAY on our entire range.

Customer Feedback

It was exciting have my own cask, I have since gone on to refill my barrel as well as buy barrels from other distilleries. Supporting Tasmanian is great. Staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. I can highly recommend you get yourself your own cask as soon as possible!

John Bailey

The customer service I received while ordering my cask made the experience so easy, fun and worthwhile. I had the pleasure of chatting to Erin, the Cellar Door Manager, and Rob, the Head Distiller, over the course of a few months. I am extremely happy with how my whisky is aging and can’t recommend Old Kempton highly enough.

Allan Baker

20 litre For personal use, then 100litre for business – independent bottler. Good new make and reputation of quality. Staff were easy to talk to and answered all my questions. I also got to brand my barrel and visit it!

Independent Bottler

So pleased with the end result of my barrel maturation. The whisky is perfect and the price works out so much better the larger a cask you get. The OKD team were extremely helpful, kind, knowledgeable and worked hard to make sure I got what I wanted from my cask. Will definitely be refilling!

Tamara Johson

After hearing such great things about OKD whisky I went for a visit and had a tour & tasting. We went on a Summer session music day and really enjoyed ourselves. The team took the time to show us the process, show us other barrels aging and we even tasted a few “different” sorts of casks to help us make up our mind before we bought our own. Highly recommend the quality of the whisky and the customer service of the OKD team.
