However, amongst the traditional saving methods is another form of protecting your wealth, a tangible asset like no other.

And because Whisky Casks naturally evaporate around 2% of the alcohol inside per year, they are classed as a wasting asset and therefore exempt from Capital Gains Tax. This means you keep every penny of your profit.
Whisky Partners help people from all walks of life with their cask ownership journey. What was once a hidden investment, reserved for the elite few in the know can now be enjoyed by all.
Purchasing casks in bulk from leading Scotch whisky distilleries, it is able to pass the savings onto clients, making the barrier of entry as low as possible, with options starting from just a few thousand pounds.
To legally be classed as Scotch whisky, the new make spirit created by the distillery must mature in a cask for at least three years and a day. Although this change does increase the value of the cask, in general the most desirable whiskies are those known as age statements with casks and bottles over 10 years of age worth considerably more.
With this in mind, whisky cask ownership should not be seen as a short term gain. The best results come from those willing to own their casks for longer periods of time, allowing enough time for the liquid inside to mature into the smooth, golden liquid the world desires.
When it comes time to sell your cask, Whisky Partners will be by your side, helping you take advantage of its vast industry contacts to ensure you get the best deal. With six possible exit strategies, including selling at auction or to fellow investors, Whisky Partners can even help you bottle your own cask should you wish. It’s your cask, your choice.
