So, Why Whiskey?

Alongside being delicious, whiskey cask ownership can be a shrewd financial decision, Here is why.

The Angels' share makes it Capital Gains tax exempt

The angels' share is the name given to the evaporation experienced by casks of whiskey when they mature. Because of this, whiskey casks are considered a wasting asset and so are currently CGT exempt.

Hedge Against Inflation

The long term nature of whiskey investment, paired with the high demand and premium price of well-aged Whiskey means that whisky casks have the potential to offer a secure long term holding of wealth with the potential for a ROI Well above the rate of inflation.

Armchair and Secure Investment

Whiskey is a hands off asset. The casks are stored in bonded facility, with full insurance. The only input you need to make is how much to buy, and when to sell.

The Value of Age

Most Whiskey is bottled before it is 12 years old

This creates real scarcity and demand for older age statements, especially in Ireland where many of the distilleries are very young themselves.

Age and Quality

Aging takes a long time, and while there are very good young whiskies some of the most complex and desirable flavours only come over time, and customers are willing to pay more money for higher age statements because they like the taste, and understand the time that has gone into the whiskey.

Brand Reputation

Whiskies from well-known and respected brands often command higher prices and returns. Buying new-make from a young distillery however, means that you can get in at a much more competitive price, and hope that they build a brand reputation that commands similar future premiums.
