In order to be legally sold as Scotch Whisky, New Make Spirit (the clear, potent liquid formed by fermenting and distilling malted barley, water and yeast) must mature in a wooden cask, in Scotland, for a minimum of 3 years. These casks have to be stored in an HMRC approved bonded warehouse.
The time spent in the cask creates a substantial increase in value, as Cask Maturation means the spirit can now be legally sold as Scotch Whisky.

We’re passionate about whisky. And we want you to share the excitement and sense of luxury that owning your own Scotch Whisky cask brings. This excitement goes hand-in-hand with something that’s also an extremely sound financial investment.
First and foremost, Whisky is created to be enjoyed. So, once it passes 3 years of Cask Maturation, you can bottle it for your very own scotch whisky.
Bespoke whisky is becoming increasingly popular as the ultimate customised gift.
Whisky auctions are a popular exit strategy and require the least amount of effort.
Holding a whisky for its 3-year Cask Maturation period takes up a lot of a whisky brand’s cash resources. They prefer to purchase whisky that’s already matured, as this reduces cashflow constraints – they can buy a cask, bottle the whisky, and send it straight to resale.
Whisky collection is on the rise, and not just for the ultra-wealthy. Anyone passionate about whisky, who’s hoping to own an 8-year-old Whisky Cask, is far more likely to purchase a cask that’s already passed maturity – for a premium – than wait the full 8 years.
