Investing in Whisky casks

“Investors can now gain exposure to an entirely new asset class: whisky in the barrel… [a] market never before widened out to include private investors.”
The Telegraph

Why you should invest in casks

  • Top performing asset according to Knight Frank Luxury Investment Index 2018
  • Average returns of 10-16% per annum
  • Great returns achievable on even modest casks
  • Safe asset-backed investment
  • Securely stored “in bond” at the original distillery in optimal conditions
  • VAT is only payable once the cask is bottled
  • All casks are purchased direct from the distillery to ensure impeccable provenance

Over the last decade or so the idea of owning a cask has gone from a romantic notion to an exciting alternative investment delivering market-beating returns.

Buying whisky in cask benefits both the investor and the distillery; investors enjoy healthy returns and the thrill of owning their very own casks while easing the hefty working capital requirements needed by the distillery to mature their stock.
