HOW TO INVEST IN WHISKY
First, decide whether you’re buying for growth, pleasure, or both.
Choose a cask, or casks, that suit you. We offer casks from a wide range of distilleries and of different types and sizes. We also offer portfolios ranging from £1500 to over £1m.
Once you have paid for your cask, you’ll receive the official documentation, including your receipt and Ownership Certificate.
Your cask will be safely stored and matured for you. All whisky casks must be stored in HMRC regulated bonded warehouses, often at the distillery. Each cask is assigned a number on the date of fill, and has a unique paper trail known as a delivery order which follows the cask through its life.
You can bottle your whisky and enjoy it at any time - or keep it, and enjoy the returns when you sell. You own a tangible asset, and what happens next is up to you.
