WHISKY CASK INVESTMENT

Step One - New Make Spirit

Whisky Cask Investment Journey, a step-by-step guide to owning your own cask.

 

Whisky begins life high in alcohol and as a clear water. According to Scottish Law, Whisky must be matured in oak casks for at least three years before it can be bottled. Purchasing a cask at this early stage allows the opportunity to purchase at the lowest possible price point. When the cask matures and contains a consumable Scotch Whisky it will inevitably be more valuable.

YOUR WHISKY CASK JOURNEY EXPLAINED

 

The journey begins with the purchase of a cask from a renowned Scottish Distillery. A “new fill” cask contains the liquor which will eventually mature into a Scotch Whisky. At this stage the contents of a cask is as clear as water and extremely high in alcohol content. Because it has not matured yet it is not classed as a Scotch Whisky which makes this the lowest price point of a cask.

GOVERNMENT REGULATED WHISKY CASK STORAGE

 

All cask are stored in climate controlled Government Bonded Storage Facilities. Although it is highly unlikely that a cask will be damaged during the storage period, to eliminate the risk associated with owning physical assets all casks are insured. To be legally deemed Scotch, all casks must be entirely produced and matured in Scotland. 

Another factor which makes Whisky Ownership a prudent investment is the 'Wasting Asset' status issued by the HMRC. Because of this Whisky Cask Ownership is not subject to Capital Gains Tax.
