About Us

More about us and our story

The services we offer

We keep a limited stock we only work with aged whisky casks from the leading distilleries.

We offer a delux service that allows clients to receive a 10cl cask draw and visit their cask.

We can also assist clients with opening their own account although, however, this comes with a cost.

A 10 year scheme fully insured and stored is in place for every cask purchased.

How we started

We started buying whisky casks ourselves and laying them down before branching out and applying for our own license. This has allowed us to have greater purchasing power and offer casks to retail investors investing alongside the management team and benefiting from our established exits with hotel groups and investment houses in Asia.
