How to Sell a Cask of Whisky

When helping you to sell your cask of whisky, we have two main goals to achieve

• Ensuring the buying and selling processes are as simple and easy as possible

At The Rare Whisky Shop we want to stand out from others with our brokerage service.

When searching for offers, we have access to diverse places as Taiwan, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Singapore. This illustrious network has been earned from years of selling rare and luxury whisky globally.

Details needed for cask valuation?

• When beginning the valuation process, there is some essential information we require.

• Distillery
• Year of production
• Cask type
• Age
• Original litres of alcohol when cask was filled

All of this information can be provided by the distiller and is a very common, straightforward process. You simply need to call the distillery and ask for a regauge.

A regauge is the process where a distillery measures exactly how much liquid remains in your cask. This is a common procedure for the distilleries. They may charge you £25 per barrel.

Accepting our offer

We act as your agent through the process and there is a formal agency agreement/contract that we will post out to you. This outlines all of our legal obligations as your agent

Once we have received the contract we then invoice the buyer and await payment.

After all the funds have cleared you then transfer ownership of the cask to the buyer and we release the funds to you minus our fee.
