Please complete as much information as you can and we will e-mail you, by return, with a valuation. Please note that we may need to contact you for further information before making our final valuation. We may also need to re-guage your cask before a valuation can be made.
If the cask is older than about 10 years old not many people would be willing to buy it off you without having recently checked the quantity in the cask. This usually costs about £25.00, depending on the warehouse where your cask is stored, but it is beneficial to both the buyer and yourself to know the quantity involved.
Prices tend to be "per litre of pure alcohol" so as the whisky gets older, say above 15-20 years, 5-10 litres of alcohol (10-20 litres) difference between an estimate and what is actually in the cask can be the difference between a profit or a very large loss. Taking such risks is not for the faint hearted so re-gauging is the only way for buyer and seller to both be confident.
If the cask is mature I'm happy to consider deals where you get a specified number of bottles from the cask; labelled and Duty Paid. This allows you to taste the final product from your investment while not being stuck with 300 bottles of the same whisky in your garage!
I do not, as a general rule, sell bottles for other people, splitting shares of profits etc. This is too complicated and we are unlikely to agree on the value or selling price of the bottles as I prefer to sell bottles cheaply and sell them quickly.
Buying a cask of whisky is exciting, interesting, a sound investment and, best of all, it's great fun!
