Founders Club - Cask Ownership
We have begun to mature both whisky and rum in carefully selected barrels while we continue to expand our existing line of spirits that are bringing us closer to our goal of becoming a globally recognized distillery. With the existing popularity of cask ownership due to its proven profitability, we decided to give our customers the option to also share in the excitement of this unique stage in our history while benefitting financially as the spirits mature. We also believe it will be a great way to build closer relationships with fellow whisky and rum aficionados and why we are planning many private tasting events and cask tours throughout the maturation process for founding members.
How does cask whiskey or rum investment work?
Cask whisky or rum investments offer private investors, hospitality businesses and sporting clubs the opportunity to purchase casks of new-make spirit, made fresh off the still. Dunrobin Distilleries will produce your spirit of choice, which then has to be transferred into casks for maturation. Whiskey must be aged, ideally between five to 10 years, or longer during which, its value increases year on year.
REASONS TO BUY A CASK
Estimated accumulative short-term returns of 6%, medium term of x%, and long term x%.
Unique and Limited
Each cask is unique, and only available directly from Dunrobin Distilleries. No two casks will ever be the same.
Maturating in Value
Time is on your side. Whisky only matures in the cask. The older and more mature a whisky, the greater the value.
Safe and Secure
Casks can only be held in government bonded warehouses and cannot be faked or fabricated.
Whisky casks are a physical, tangible asset that you own. You can sample them, trade them or even bottle them!
Our multiple exit strategies and global client base ensures a hassle-free exit from your investment.
