As a complete novice to the world of investing, I was initially quite nervous, but I'm very glad to say the process went very smoothly thanks to Aaron Dolan. He patiently talked me through everything relevant to my investment and responded to every question that I had promptly and in depth. I have been very impressed, Aaron made the whole process so easy. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Aaron and I will definitely be investing again in the future.

Michele Illing

We were introduced to whisky investment opportunities by a friend. Thomas White was our main point of contact. Every interaction with Thomas and the team at London Cask was professional, courteous and informative. There were no ‘pushy sales’ tactics and a genuine feeling that they were there to find the most suitable, affordable investment vehicle to suit my budget. All in all, a very pleasurable experience.
