Typically, investing in whisky involves sourcing casks in the best distilleries, mostly throughout Scotland. Distilleries offer these casks to investors at a discount to help cover up-front costs.
Depending on market conditions, cask purchases are most suitable for investors who take the long view. As a private investor, holding on to a five to ten-year-old barrel of whisky can prove to be lucrative.
Although there are annual storage and insurance costs to meet while the product matures in a secure bonded warehouse, the potential returns are excellent. As for almost any investment, medium to long-term commitment is likely to reap the highest rewards.
Casks usually age for at least five to seven years. For your peace of mind, we will re-insure your barrel every year according to its rise in value.
