      Why are whisky casks a good alternative investment?

      We aim to make investing in whisky simple and easy to understand, guiding you through the investment process whether you’re an individual private investor or representing a retail client. Whatever your investment style and needs, we can identify a way to incorporate whisky casks into your portfolio. When investing in whisky casks, you aren’t reliant on the performance of a fund manager or particular company.

      Our aim is to collaborate with and educate investors to assist you in deciding on and purchasing premium Scotch whisky at a good price, as your investment partners. Of course, an essential and enjoyable part of the process is tasting a drop of your very own whisky. When investing at scale, your whisky will be stored in the barrel in your name at low cost in an HMRC-approved bonded warehouse.

        How it works.

        01.

        We source whisky from the very best distilleries in Scotland and Ireland, which we purchase at discounted rates (attractive to the distillery as they can cover their upfront costs).

        02.

        These rates attract investors, who purchase casks outright. The casks are then stored in a secure, government-bonded warehouse and fully insured.

        03.

        Sit back and wait, as your casks increase in value – we recommend at least 5 to 7 years. The insurance is updated yearly in accordance with the increased value.

        04.

        When you’re ready to exit, various exit strategies are available, including bottling under your own label or selling on to a whisky brand.

        Expected returns

        As with any investment, there are no guarantees on exactly what kind of return you will make, yet you can be confident of making a profit from maturing whisky – as it ages, it also becomes more rare. Data shows that prices of the top 100 investment-grade whisky brands have gone up more than 500% in the last ten years. The below should give you an idea of the kind of returns we are seeing on whisky, based on historical price increases:

        It should therefore not be a surprise to learn that the 2019 Frank Knight Wealth Report listed whisky as the year’s highest-performing luxury investment. In the last year alone, values of rare bottles have increased 40% – hugely outstripping more established luxury assets such as wine, cars and art. The year 2019 also saw a record-breaking sale of a single container, of Macallan 1926, sold at auction for an incredible $1.5m – approximately £50,000 per measure. Rare Whisky 101 also reported that the value of rare whiskies increased by more than 160% from 2014 to 2018. For comparison, the FTSE 100 achieved 2.47% over the same period.

        In light of the extremely attractive returns on offer, level of demand for whisky produced by a small number of top distilleries is extremely high.
