A unique opportunity to invest in a cask of fine and rare whiskey from the historic Tusmore Estate FROM £6,000 + VAT
The heart of Tusmore Whiskey lies in the land of this privately-owned 3,000-acre Estate in Oxfordshire, whose history dates back to the 14th century. Made to an award-winning recipe by our experienced Distiller, it begins its story at the estate’s barley fields. Here, the barley is harvested and malted before being transferred to our partner distillery in Ireland where it is milled, mashed and fermented under the supervision of our Distiller. At Ballykeefe, the whiskey is triple distilled using a traditional copper pot still method for a deliciously smooth and clean spirit.
On its return, the whiskey is matured in ex-bourbon casks on the Estate, each with their own distinctive style and character, to create a perfectly balanced, fruit forward smooth whiskey. Ready to be enjoyed after three years’ maturation, it can be stored for longer to add further depth and complexity. We recommend five years’ storage for it to be sampled at its best.

Dr Struan Reid oversees our entire whiskey-making production. Originally from Kirkintilloch in suburban Glasgow, he is passionate about the process, having studied the chemical make-up of new make spirit and how this contributes to the quality and character of the whiskey. After gaining his master’s degree in chemistry from the University of Edinburgh, he conducted research in conjunction with leading Scottish distilleries Glenmorangie and Ardbeg into yeast and fermentation, which earned him a doctorate from the world-renowned International Centre for Brewing and Distilling at Heriot-Watt University. He joined us in August 2020 to apply this intricate knowledge of whiskey production to our premium quality Tusmore whiskey.
