There is an Excellent Return

Whisky casks are a superb alternative asset. Over the last 20 years, scotch whisky has emerged as one of the leading alternative asset classes. They can provide you with an array of accumulative short, medium and long-term returns, according to your personal objectives.

Value Increases with Time

Whisky matures when it’s in the cask. Generally speaking, the more mature and older a whisky is, then the more value it can attain. Therefore, the longer that you hold your cask, the value will increase with every year. 

It’s a Safe Option

As whisky casks can only be stored away in government bonded warehouses, and are unable to be faked or duplicated- they are a safe and secure alternative asset. You can be assured that you’re making a reliable decision. 

Unique Opportunity

Cask ownership is one of a kind; it’s unique and every single cask is different. There are no two casks that are the same, and so, you’ll be acquiring a unique asset. 

Range of Potential Exit Strategies

Whisky casks are incredibly popular on a global scale. Today, there is a global client base with our sister company Cask Trade and with this, there are multiple exit strategies available. Therefore, when you own a whisky cask, there will always be plenty of opportunities to exit the market.

They’re Delicious Assets

At Auction Your Cask, we see your cask as a whisky, not just a commodity. Whisky casks are also physical, tangible assets that you can sample. You can sample, trade or bottle your whisky - it’s entirely up to you!
