What we stand for
Founded in 2018 and run by whisky and spirits masters, Cask Trade is unique because we own all the casks before we sell them, giving our customers 100% transactional guarantee. We’ve created an open and trustworthy marketplace, meaning not only do we buy casks, but we also sell them too. We pride ourselves on honesty and transparency. We are the only cask company that sells to collectors, investors, and trade bottlers, demonstrating the trust for Cask Trade within the industry.
In five years we have grown exponentially, opening offices in both the UK and Hong Kong to service the entire APAC region, with agents in Australia, Singapore, India and the USA. Our success has been founded on acquiring stock to suit every type of customer, including Scotch Whisky, Irish Whiskey, and Rum, and we have built the largest sample library available in the UK.
Meet the Founder - Simon Aron
As an established entrepreneur and passionate whisky collector for more than 25 years, Simon suffered many false promises from whisky investment companies - this fuelled his ambition to create an authentic, inclusive marketplace for private clients and trade. He wanted to enable all types of whisky enthusiasts to enter the market, whether it be for a romantic journey or for returns as an alternative asset.
