Investing in Scotch Whisky Casks
Why Invest in Whisky?
Scotch Whisky casks have become a hot topic in the world of investing recently, with the asset offering solid double digit returns to investors. Distilleries, Scotch, barrels and hogsheads are on many an investors lips at present.
Though questions we are often asked are “how do I invest in Whisky?”, “is it easy to invest in rare Whisky?” or “how do I select which Whisky to invest in?”. The short answer is that if you want to invest in maturing Whisky Casks, speak with the right partners to assist, advise, guide you and answer any questions you may have along your Whisky investment journey.
Any investor looking to invest in Scotch Whisky casks must do their due diligence and engage the correct partners to assist them, as there are numerous factors to consider. To access the market, a partner with the appropriate knowledge, regulatory licenses, access to investment grade casks at the right price are all paramount to unlocking the growth which maturing Scotch Whisky casks offer investors.
There are several topics which you must consider before investing in Scotch Whisky, namely the Whisky you are investing in (distillery, region and age of the spirit), the wood (known as the cask or sometimes barrel) which can be of varying sizes, quality and type, and most importantly, the price at which you invest.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
“Like the majority of people in the world, luxury asset investment has never been top of my agenda due to knowledge and affordability. I met Chris and Byron of Altvest during virtual business training sessions in lockdown. At a follow up meeting we very quickly recognised our joint interest in the whisky industry. I made enquiries about their cask investment portfolio and decided to buy from them if I could afford to do it. I am pleased to say I have made my first ever investment in a cask of whisky and I can add that the knowledge, integrity and enthusiasm of the guys made this purchase an absolute pleasure. I have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone."
