  • Is whisky investment safe?
    In the long run, investing in whisky casks can yield an average annual returns of 12%-18%. This potential for profit is linked to whisky's global appeal and robust sales. The market for collectible and rare whisky casks has seen unprecedented price levels. Even though past performance is not guaranteed, there is more demand than ever for high-quality whisky. In a recent Knight Frank wealth report, expert financiers named whisky as the best alternative investment. Some 150+ distilleries are now in operation in Scotland, creating some legendary whiskies that have been fetching jaw-dropping rates at auction.
  • Is my whisky investment insured?
    Yes, it is. When you invest in whisky, you get the satisfaction of having an actual, physical product as security. It also helps spread out the risks of your other investments. All of the casks are fully insured and kept in Scotland in bonded warehouses regulated by HMRC.
  • Can the whisky spoil or go off?
    Comprehensive quality controls are done before the whisky is filled into the cask. Once the whisky is in the cask it is rare for it to spoil and any spirit quality problems are almost certainly due to a subpar cask which can be sequestered before blending or bottling. Whisky Cask Club customers are protected from any quality issues by our standard commercial arrangement with suppliers.
  • What if the distillery goes out of business?
    In the improbable event of the distillery going bust. It would have no impact on your casks. Your barrels only provide a storage solution and the distillery has no lien over them. We would move your barrels to a 3rd Party Bonded Warehouse if needed.
  • What is “First Fill” and “Refill?”
    Casks can be filled for the first time or filled again. “First fill” refers to a cask used to age Scotch for the first time. If it is used more than once, it is called a “refill” cask.
  • How is the Whisky Cask Club regulated?
    The Whisky Cask Club Pte Ltd is a Singapore ACRA registered and regulated company, UEN 202215310M. The registered address is 1 North Bridge Road, #18-06, High Street Centre, Singapore, 179094. Our office address is 206A Telok Ayer Street, Singapore 068641
  • How are the prices for buying & selling determined?
    Whisky casks are sold ‘over the counter’ (OTC). The pricing is typically determined by the last, similar, cask sold. There are several sites that have various indices which are a good indicator of market performance. Rare Whisky 101 and the Knight Frank Luxury Index are good places to look.
  • What would happen if WCC becomes insolvent?
    If WCC were to become insolvent, you’d still own the cask you purchased. The storage and insurance fees have already been prepaid. Should it become necessary, you’ll be able to find a different company to help you sell your whisky.
  • How much does it cost to invest in a Whisky Cask?
    The costs to start an investment at Whisky Casks Club are low and depend on how many casks you buy and how much they cost. There are no other costs aside from storage and insurance.
  • What is included in a cask purchase?
    We sell both used and new casks because each client has different requirements. We include storage and insurance with purchases.
  • Is there a minimum investment period?
    Yes, the minimum investment period is one year. There are other terms and conditions which can be found in our terms & conditions.
  • When will I sell my cask?
    You may sell your cask at any time after one year. We recommend holding your cask for at least three years and up to ten years or more if possible.
  • Which whisky is the best to buy?
    We tend to stock some renowned brands, and they will trade at a premium over the others. However this can be not essentially a good indicator of final returns, and like stocks and shares, it’s not obvious which is the winner. Most investors choose a spread of whisky casks. Time is the critical factor. From experience, we know that if we hold on to a cask for at least five years, the returns will be much higher.
  • Do you have any hidden fees?
    Your cask has five years of storage and insurance included in the price. You won’t have to pay any additional fees during that time.
  • Will I have to pay UK Capital Gains Tax (CGT)?
    Only if you are a UK resident. If you are a Singapore resident there is no CGT.
  • Can I take out some bottles?
    Yes. Subject to paying the excise duty and VAT on the amount you take out; you can take as much or as little as you want.

  • Are whisky casks a good alternative investment?
    According to the Global Whisky Market, the whisky cask business is expected to reach USD$95.9 billion by 2026, up from USD$61.7 billion in 2019. Financial experts anticipate a considerable increase in demand that will continue through to 2030. Since 2021, the alternative investment industry has expanded tremendously and consistently. Whisky is an alternative investment that is not dependent on the global economy, which is why many investors choose to invest.
  • What whiskies can I buy through the Whisky Cask Club?
    We have a varied selection that changes regularly as the whisky cask business is fast-moving. It is best to contact us for an updated stock list.
  • How big is the market for Scotch whisky?
    According to the statistics, generated using HRMC (His Majesty’s Revenue and Customs) export data, the value of Scotch Whisky exports increased globally by 4.4% to £4.91 billion, with increases in 106 of its international markets. The export of 70cl bottles climbed as well, reaching 1.31 billion, or an increase of 2.4%. Africa and Asia saw the largest value gains in exports, with 9.8% and 11.3%, respectively. Some 44 bottles of Scotch whisky are exported every second of every day.
  • How do I know that the whisky is of good quality?
    We only sell casks that are reputable — our UK division manages supply and ensures that it is up to standard. All the whisky is produced from high quality single malt and grain, and is made by reputable distillers. We take pride in the fact that we have long-established relationships with a host of Scottish whisky distilleries — from the Highlands to the Lowlands — all of whom have casks of fresh-fill, 3-year-old, 8-year-old, 10-year-old, 12-year-old casks and others for investment.
  • Why purchase casks over bottles?
    Whisky gets better and more valuable as it ages in the cask. It takes a specialist to buy whisky in casks instead of bottles. Whisky doesn’t age in the bottle as wine does. The taste of Scotch Whisky won’t change once it’s in a bottle. The “age” written on the bottle is how long it has been in the cask to get better. Even if the bottle is kept for decades, its “age” doesn’t change. Once it’s in a bottle, a 10-year-old whisky will always be a 10-year-old whisky.
  • How long can I keep my cask?
    With your initial whisky cask purchase, you receive 5 years of storage and insurance. Clients can store casks indefinitely. After the first 5 years, WCC offers competitively priced extensions for durations of your choice, like 5, 10, or 15 years. All casks are fully insured by the bonded warehouse, with coverage from Lloyds of London and other specialised insurers.
  • Where do I store my Whisky investment?
    The casks must be stored in HMRC regulated bonded warehouses in Scotland. The casks are are not allowed to leave that warehouse until they are bottled.
