Join our cask share programme – Germany 2022
Would you like (a share of) your own cask of Thy Whisky? Now is your chance…
By buying a cask share you will be a part of the whole process from filling the cask in November to bottling the finished whisky in five years.
This year we have handpicked both PX and Bourbon casks to be filled for Berlin, Hamburg and Mönchengladbach. Every year you will get a chance to meet us in these cities for a special tasting event exclusively for cask shareholders and friends.
Last year we filled the first two casks for Berlin and Mönchengladbach and had a great time meeting our ‘first generation’ of German shareholders for special tasting events at Beavis Bar, Berlin in September and Kult+Genuss, Mönchengladbach in November. Hopefully everyone from 2021 will join us again this year and pick up their 1-year sample.
The price of one share is 4.500 DKK (app. 600€). This includes all expenses and free admission for annual tasting events until you get the finished bottles of whisky.
Each share includes:
– 6 liters of organic beechwood smoked new make (59,5 % alc. vol.)
– Certificate of ownership
– 3 samples of the cask during maturation (1 x 5 cl per share)
– Maturation for 5 years in our warehouse
– Bottling and labeling of the finished whisky
– Admission to annual cask owner’s events in your select “cask city”
We expect that you will receive a minium of 8 x 50 cl bottles of whisky at cask strength after four years of maturation (After Angels’s Share, samples i.e.).
Ex-Bourbon Quarter Cask (125 liters)
Bøg (Beechwood smoke), 59,5 % alc. vol.
Expected Maturation: 5 years
Beechwood is our signature smoke inspired by Danish culinary tradition. It adds a soft and pleasant campfire smokiness and rich sweetness to the new make with less sharp medicinal aromas than you get from traditional peat. The smoke fits perfectly with the malty character of our “Thy” new make.
The fresh 1st fill bourbon quarter cask adds varm vanilla, acacia honey sweetness and some oaky and spicy aromas. During maturation the whisky will expectedly develop fruity and apple like aromas.
The format for this quarter casks is narrow and long, which gives a relatively quick extract and high intensity of cask aromas compared to a standard 200 liter bourbon barrel, that would normally take more time to fully mature.
Ex-PX Quarter Cask (120 liters)
Pale malt (unpeated malt), 59,5 % alc. vol.
Expected maturation: 5 years
Pale malt is our unpeated new make made from our organic ‘Odyssey’. It carries the basic malty character of our “Thy” new make along with some dusty grain and light fruity aromas.
The wood of this 1st fill PX quarter cask has held sherry for expectedly 20-30 years which has cleaned out the bitter tannins and oakiness. Instead it adds warm and sweet muscovado and sugar cane aromas, an old wood feeling and a thick oily mouthfeel, that blend in really well with our new make to create a sweet whisky with high complexity.
The extraction of aromas from our 1st fill PX casks is quite fast. For this size of cask 4-6 years is perfect for achieving a very mature whisky. 5 years will expectedly give an intensely sweet and aromatic but still balanced whisky for you in the end.
