WHAT IS A CASK, AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
Why invest in cask whisky
Between 2010 and 2017, exports of Scotch Whisky increased by 44.5% and, in 2017, the export value rose from £1.02bn to £1.17bn. When it comes to Scotch Whisky, production is still not able to meet the ever-growing demand.
MOST EXPENSIVE CASK EVER SOLD
In November 2019, a cask of Macallan 1989, ex-sherry Hogshead, sold at auction in Hong Kong for £441,000 and set the new world record. It broke the record set in 2018 by a cask of 1987 Macallan sold in the same Hong Kong auction for £375,000!

In 2019, rare whisky topped the Frank Knight Luxury Investment Index, beating wine, coins and classic cars to first place with the 10-year growth of whisky at 584%.
