Patrice Villeger
CEO, Art and Cask



Art and Cask is a supplier of used character casks for the whisky industry, specializing in helping whisky producers enhance the flavor profiles and overall quality of their products by leveraging the unique properties of wood and whisky interaction.

Art and Cask offers a diverse range of casks, including American oak, European oak, and various exotic wood species. We also provide casks that have previously held different wines, sherries, ports, and rums, allowing whisky producers to explore a vast array of flavor combinations.

Art and Cask combines expert consultation and personalized guidance to help whisky producers select the right cask types, charring or toasting levels, and aging environments for their products, ensuring the perfect balance of flavors and aromas.

Wood and whisky interaction is crucial for developing the flavor profile of a whisky, as the spirit extracts compounds from the wood during aging. The specific wood type, charring or toasting level, and previous cask contents can significantly impact the final flavor and aroma profile of the whisky.

Art and Cask assists whisky producers in optimizing the aging process by offering insights into wood types, charring and toasting levels, previous cask contents, and aging environment factors. This helps producers harness the power of wood and whisky interaction to create exceptional spirits.

Art and Cask partners with whisky producers to provide expert consultation, curated character casks, and personalized guidance. Our team’s vast knowledge and experience in whisky production ensure producers have the support and resources they need to create truly exceptional products.
