Whisky Cask Storage & Ownership
Storage & Insurance
To be legally classified a Scotch Whisky, casks must be held in Scotland for the entirety of their maturation period. Whisky casks asks are stored in Duty-Free Government Regulated Warehouses where they are also insured. Storage and insurance costs between £50 – £80 per year.
Transfer of Ownership
Whisky cask owners receive a Certification of Ownership outlining them as the exclusive owner. The certificate will also outline important information such as the unique cask number, the distillation date, alcohol levels and the warehouse it is stored in. Samples can be drawn upon request, although we advise disturbing the cask as little as possible to ensure optimum maturity.
