Simplifying Whisky Cask Ownership

As an alcohol product, the warehousing and movement of whisky casks is strictly controlled by HMRC, and all Scotch whisky casks must be kept in a government bonded warehouse in Scotland until the time at which they are bottled. This extensive oversight ensures the provenance of the assets can be verified to uphold the integrity and quality of the entire Scotch whisky industry.

Due to these restrictions, any individual or entity who wishes to purchase a cask has previously been required to first establish an account with a government bonded warehouse before they would be allowed to hold casks in their name. Additionally, if the party was deemed to be acting as a commercial entity due to bottling casks or acquiring a significant quantity of casks, then the purchaser was also required to become WOWGR registered.

However, Braeburn Whisky has simplified the process by which individual investors can purchase whisky casks by pioneering the first portfolio management service which allows investment in whisky casks without the traditional complexity.

Caring For Your Casks

Viewfield is a private, government-bonded warehouse for Braeburn Whisky client casks in Speyside, the heart of whisky country.

Respecting the heritage of Speyside, this brand-new facility has been built as a dunnage warehouse, mixing traditional storage methods with innovative tracking technology.

The warehouse is fully equipped to offer all the services needed to care for casks and maximise their value when the time comes to sell. From inventory and sampling to re-racking and re-gauging, our team will expertly manage all your cask needs at the new facility.

You are welcome to visit your cask at Viewfield; our site is well-equipped to receive visitors. However, it is extremely important to book your visit in advance with your sales representative or the Braeburn client care team. The warehouse is very popular and so we must limit the number of visitors we receive each day, to ensure the safety and security of all client casks, and the best possible experience for visitors.

Online Client Portal

The Braeburn Whisky Client Portal is a personalised online platform that gives clients a clear head start in building their portfolios and an easy way to keep track of their investments, spot opportunities and plan their exit strategies. The portal tracks changes in the projected value of casks to keep investors abreast of estimated changes in the value of their holdings.
