Scotland’s first and only rum distillery, Dark Matter Distillers, is offering rum lovers the opportunity to own one of its first 10 casks. The asking price? £10,000 ($15,419.40).

Available on a first come first serve basis, the rum is aged in 66-gallon Oloroso Sherry casks. A small sample will be drawn from each cask and sent to the owners annually once the rum is at least three years old. But the distillery says that for optimal results, they “recommend a minimum 10-year maturation period.”
