Whisky stops maturing once bottled. So the longer you hold, the more mature the cask will become. And the more mature a whisky, the more valuable. In 2017 a single cask of 30 year old Macallan Single Malt Scotch whisky sold at auction for £292,890.
It takes 3 years for the contents of a cask to develop into Scotch whisky. Once a cask has reached this point it is ready to be sold back to a distillery. Therefore, an investor must be comfortable to hold their cask for a minimum of 3 years. We guarantee the sale of a cask after the 5th year. However, it is not uncommon for investors to hold casks for decades.
Whisky stops maturing once bottled. So the longer you hold a cask, the more valuable it will become. Much like the Macallan example.
The liquor is put into oak casks and stored. This is the point of purchase. The spirit must be aged in Scotland for a minimum of three years before it is legally deemed Scotch. During maturation the flavours of the spirit combine with natural compounds within the wooden cask which gives the whisky a unique flavour and aroma.
Our Services
Our clients pay a 10% brokerage fee on each cask they purchase. This fully covers our services from purchase to resale.
The cask is stored in a Bonded Warehouse which makes this asset free
of Duty & VAT. An expert will oversee the maturation of your cask in a climate controlled environment. After 3 years the casks contents would have matured into Scotch whisky. We will send you free yearly samples of your cask every year for 5 years. You will be able to see the contents of your cask develop into a much darker, more mature and valuable whisky as the years go by.
Storage starts at £50 per year, which also includes insurance and upkeep.
Realisation of Investment
We advise customers to hold a cask for a 5 year investment term. The maturation of a whisky stops when it is removed from the cask. If you purchase a cask of whisky and store it between 3 to 10 years, you are ensuring that the whisky is mature enough to claim a high value at market.
Distilleries sell their new whisky casks which allows them to free up capital which would otherwise be tied up for years as they wait for the contents to mature into whisky. Once mature, the Scotch is bought back by major brands for bottling and retailing. This is a popular way to exit the investment as it requires little to no effort from the investor.
