Founded in April 2014, The Whisky Market has grown from a modest private client base and now has over £2,000,000.00 of single malt Scottish whisky casks under management. The decline in global markets and alternatives in general forced many people to look elsewhere for value and a tax efficient hold.
Over the last 3 years, The Whisky Market has been working with a very unique type of asset for a select clientele allowing them to access a piece of Scotch history by owning casks of Single Malt Premium Scotch Whisky.
Current independent reports are showing typical returns are around 7 – 12% per annum for holding Scotch whisky casks over the last 9 years.
On top of growing demand and great returns, Whiskies held in casks are exempt from both VAT and more importantly, Capital Gains Tax, ensuring all profit from cask ownership will be yours to keep!
The ownership of the cask is for 3, 5 or 10 years and always in the client’s name so they have 100% security in their ownership of the cask. Casks are matured at the distillery or warehouse until they are ready to be sold.
