Transportation and Storage

Once Emptied, These Casks Were Used For Storage

 

And transport containers for Scotch Whisky.

 

Up until the 19th century, many Scots distillers still sold their output by the barrel to local pubs, inns and licensed grocers and hardly sold further afield.

 

A grocer or a merchant in a village or town might stock four or five barrels of different local malts, identified by a card tacked to each one.
