Does my Cask Club Membership include a tour?
HDC offers tours to any guests by request at both HDC Flagship & HDC Eugene Locations.
How long can I age my spirits?
Cask Club barrels are 10 liter size. The average aging time is 6-12 months depending on the product and flavor profile each member would like to achieve. Keeping a spirit in a 10 liter barrel for much longer than a year would cause over oaking in the flavor profile.
Why doesn't my membership include the price of the bottles?
Washington and Oregon state laws require us to charge for spirits. The price for Cask Club bottles is $25 per bottle (plus applicable taxes) for 750 ml size and $15 per bottle (plus applicable taxes) for 375 ml size.
