Purchased from previous owner in 2003, Tullibardine has been swiftly brought out of the mothballs in which it had resided since 1994 and is now approaching over 2.5 million litres per year.
In just five years, Benriach has gone from a forgotten footnote, one of many neglected distilleries in the portfolios of big companies, to one of the most exciting single malts around.
Mortlach distillery is still owned by Diageo, and its capacity of 2.9 million litres per year enables it to be a major malt in the production of the Johnnie Walker blend, reflecting the spirit's huge popularity among blenders.
Built in 1846, Caol Ila is the largest of the eight working distilleries on the Island of Islay, situated off the west coast of Scotland, with a production capacity of 3 million litres per year.
Major growth in the Whisky market is being driven by the demand for premium Whisky in both emerging and developed countries, as well as breakthroughs in the making and distilling process.
There is also rapid continued growth of the Whisky market in Asia due to large-scale rising consumption of alcoholic beverages in countries like India, Japan, Singapore and China. Whichever way you look, it’s clear that we are entering a golden age for Whisky.
Our analysts track the market on a daily basis and can identify Whisky that has the best potential for long term growth.
To ensure your whisky is kept in perfect condition your casks will be fully insured and stored in a HMRC licensed bonded warehouse.
Casks are naturally porous which allows the Whisky to breathe and take on any characteristics of its environment. The longer it is held, the more taste, aroma and colour it extracts from the oak, and the more it can rise in value.
Whether you sell your whisky back to the live global market, offer it up at auction, sell to an independent bottler or sell it back to the distillery, there are plenty of ways to exit the market.
At Cask we’re on a mission to change people’s perception of the Whisky investment market. Because although many seem to treat Whisky Investment like some sort of private members club for the super rich, we believe it should be accessible to all.Download Your Free Whisky Investment Guide

When you purchase bottled Whisky it is further along the process than casks and ready to be sold on at any time. However, the older the whisky gets the more valuable it can become, so buying at the cask stage allows for the maximal capital appreciation. Also, unlike Whisky in casks, bottled Whisky does not mature with age. That means once it is bottled, it will remain exactly the same indefinitely. Any appreciation in value that a bottled Whisky sees is based on changes in demand for that particular release.
You should be prepared to hold your Whisky for an absolute minimum of 5 years.
Market statistics from the past decade indicate returns of around 8 - 12% per annum.
Casks of Whisky have to be stored in government bonded facilities which is why we store all of our client stock in a HMRC bonded warehouse where the goods are free from duty and VAT.
Whisky casks are classed as a ‘wasting asset’ and are therefore not subject to capital gains tax. A wasting asset is an asset with a predictable life of 50 years or less.
When your cask is being stored or transported between bonded warehouses, it’s held and transported under duty suspension which means you don’t have to pay duty on your cask until it is removed from the bond.
