Why do distilleries need investors?

  • Distilleries produce ‘new make spirit’ - must be transferred into casks for maturation. 

  • The whisky-making process itself is capital and labour intensive. 

  • To cover these costs and raise capital, distilleries sell some casks to individuals or funds. 

  • Market now open to more investors through brokers such Whisky Cask Club.

Know Your Exits 

  • Sell to a bottler - 80% of brands do not own a distillery, primary route to exit.

  • Sell to a blender - sell as part of a bulk trade with a commercial blender. 

  • Sell at auction - a great way to achieve the best sale price. Bidding wars are not uncommon.
