Proposal titleA NOVEL ROUTE TO WINE CASKS FOR WHISKEY PRODUCTION

AbstractThe use of wine casks (notably ex-sherry casks) in the Distilling industries is atan all time

low (typically less than 5% of total inventory), despite their products being held in high

regard by consumers. An innovative process is proposed that will allow significant cost

reductions in the manufacture of these casks, limitation of variation in quality, and there

will be no requirement for wine fermentation in cask. The process is based upon the use of

high tannin, coarse grain oak (fast growth) and seasoning with natural enzymes. The lead

in time for delivery of arders will be reduced to 1 month and there will be no low-grade

wine left as a by product. The benefits could lead to much greater use of these casks in

Distilling industries. There should be significant benefits for SME producers throughout the

production chain.
