A Single Malt Scotch Program

From the Borders of Scotland



The American Cask Club was founded to celebrate the partnership between American Casks and Scotch Whisky. The Borders Distillery uses American Oak ex-Bourbon casks for maturing our New Make Spirit, continuing a century long relationship between two great whisky traditions.


Ownership of your American Cask will grant you access to an online community of like-minded whisky enthusiasts. This is your opportunity to discover the magic of whisky, and ask the questions you’ve always wanted to know the answer to.


Select your own filling date to mark a special occasion. The cask purchase price includes 8 years of storage. Cask ownership also entitles you to a bottle from the first bottling of Borders Distillery Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

Bottle a Piece of History


One of only 1,000 casks from the Scottish Borders – the first Scotch Whisky to leave the region since 1837.


Choose your filling date

The Borders Distillery will fill your American Oak cask with our malted barley New Make Spirit. You can select your own filling date*, to mark a special event, offer as a gift or to celebrate a momentous occasion.

Purchase your Cask

Create an American Cask account and complete your purchase. The cost of $3,600 includes storage of your cask for up to 8 years**. Cask owners will receive a complimentary tour of The Borders Distillery during any visit to Scotland.

Download the app

The American Cask app will house your details and report annual updates via our flavour graph. Cask owners can join our Club events, meet the Borders Distillery team and learn more about the Scottish Borders.

The first bottling

The Borders Distillery opened in 2018, and is the first Scotch Whisky distillery in the region since 1837. Ownership of an American Cask will entitle you to a bottle from the first bottling of The Borders Distillery’s own Single Malt Scotch Whisky. This is the first Single Malt to leave the region in 185 years.

Discover the spirit of the Borders


When visiting Scotland, American cask owners receive complimentary distillery tours and tastings hosted by The Borders Distillery’s expert distilling team.

The American Cask Club welcomes you to join a new venture in Scotch Whisky.

Only 1,000 of these American Casks will be released for sale from The Borders Distillery. Along with your cask ownership, you will have a (virtual) front row seat to the workings of The Borders Distillery, and be welcome to enjoy the benefits of being part of a like-minded community of whisky enthusiasts.

After the storage period, you will be invited to personalise your own label. Once bottled, your Single Malt Scotch Whisky will be sent to the USA under bond (local taxes will apply). The Distillery estimates that each cask will yield somewhere between 240 and 270 bottles of 70cl at 92% Proof.
