How about whisky investment

done properly?

At Cask Trade, we provide a trusted marketplace for trading and handling whisky casks, and unlike our competitors we don’t just sell, we buy it too. We own all our casks, and we’re not brokers, we’re stockists. Anything that goes on our stocklist is owned outright, and we verify each one before it appears on our stock list, so you can be confident that your cask is genuine.

Whisky is one of the rare commodities that appreciates over time and we’re committed to helping you get the most from your whisky cask investment.

There’s whisky investment. And there’s whisky investment done properly.

At Cask Trade, we provide a trusted market place for the buying and selling of cask whisky. Casks have the edge over bottles for long-term profits. As specialists in our field, we can offer access to rare casks, for private and trade investors. Good casks from well known distillers are not readily available - there is not an endless supply.

As Masters of Whisky Appreciation, we are passionate about the contents and quality of our casks. We buy them outright. Therefore, because we own them we can offer quality control; we are able to regauge, health check and sample casks, before they go on our stock list. We also offer hassle-free exit strategies, with the opportunity to tap into our global client base of independent bottles and investors. It means you can be confident about every aspect of your investment from start to finish.



How to buy a whisky cask


First, decide whether you’re buying for growth, pleasure, or both.


Choose a cask, or casks, that suit you. We offer casks from a wide range of distilleries and of different types and sizes. We also offer portfolios ranging from £1500 to over £1m.


Once you have paid for your cask, you’ll receive the official documentation, including your receipt and Ownership Certificate.


Your cask will be safely stored and matured for you. All whisky casks must be stored in HMRC regulated bonded warehouses, often at the distillery. Each cask is assigned a number on the date of fill, and has a unique paper trail known as a delivery order which follows the cask through its life.


You can bottle your whisky and enjoy it at any time - or keep it, and enjoy the returns when you sell. You own a tangible asset, and what happens next is up to you.
