In the world of finance, where numbers and stocks can seem a little dry, a new trend is proving ‘dram’ popular –whisky cask investments.
Whisky, the renowned national drink of Scotland, is capturing the attention of an increasing number of investors seeking to diversify their holdings and find excitement in their financial pursuits.
And it’s more straightforward than you might think, especially if you enlist the help of a specialist company, and do your due diligence to decide if it’s the right fit for you.
Whisky Partners is one firm in the sector and has a broad range of clients – from those who love a tipple and are tickled by owning some of Scotland’s national drink to serious financial investors, who think there’s money to be made.
So, how do you buy a cask, and what are returns likely to be?
As with any other investment, profit is never guaranteed, nor can the extent of variance, up or down, predicted.
However, Whisky Partners says this sector of the financial market has suffered less from swings in recent times, compared with traditional bonds or the stock market.
And the extra tax perk is certainly attractive – whisky casks are capital gains exempt, thanks to the natural evaporation of the spirit in the cask, known as the Angel’s Share.
Buy through Whisky Partners and they manage the storage and insurance too, so you know in advance what your initial outlay will be.

Not for quick returns
Just like the whisky itself, think of this as an investment to be sipped and savoured – there’s no quick gains in the whisky investment market.
The spirit has to mature for a minimum of three years and a day in the cask before it even can be called whisky. Many sit in the bonded warehouse for 10 years or more to intensify the flavour and make them more desirable to the drinking public.
A spokesperson for Whisky Partners said: “The best results come from those who allow enough time for the liquid inside their cask to mature into the smooth, golden liquid the world desires.”
