Of course, the first step in any investment is to do your research and decide what to invest in. With Scotch Whisky this can be the really fun part as you sample different options and decide which is right for you, then it’s time to make your move and use the Whisky Investment Partners secure online portal to complete your purchase.
With this comes all of the information you need about cask storage and insurance, including a certificate of ownership which will include your unique cask number that relates to the exact distillery where the cask is stored, along with the technical information about your cask (the wood type, the distillery of origin, the spirit name inside the cask and its ABV).
Once you own your cask, you won’t need to find somewhere to store it securely while it matures, because we will house it in our duty-suspended bonded warehouse, which has been verified by the HMRC. This means you don’t need to pay excise and duty on your casks while they mature and you won’t even need to pay this if you sell them on, only if you decide to bottle your whisky yourself.
