How Mark Littler Can Help You

If you think that casks are a good investment for you then we can now help you find you the perfect cask for your needs. 

Here is what we do in a nutshell:

Fact finding & cask selection

Mr Smith comes to us to find three casks, one for each of his three grandchildren.  We find him casks a selection of casks from Bruichladdich, Ben Nevis, Caol Ila, Bowmore, Ardbeg, Springbank, Highland Park and Arran to meet his budget and needs.  His casks are then moved to our exclusive HMRC Bonded Warehouse.

Making the most of your investment

Mr Smith visits his casks every 2-3 years on his way up to Scotland.  He contacts us every Christmas to have 6 bottles drawn from each of his casks.

We have the bottles applied with bespoke labels and he enjoys how the whisky inside his casks is maturing and developing.

Return on investment

When his grandchildren reach 21 they decide to sell their casks.  Mark Littler LTD. help them draw a final six bottles from the cask as a keepsake.  The casks are then sold in bond and the three grandchildren each use the proceeds from the sales towards a house deposit.  Best of all their profits are free from Capital Gains Tax.

How We Evolved As A Broker

We don’t only sell casks to people. In fact, our primary business is selling bottles and casks for people. We are established antiques brokers and have sold everything from medieval gold rings to classic cars.

So how did we get to a position where we were selling casks to the public? Learn more in this short video:

Advice You Can Trust

Since 2016 our aim has been simple – to provide a trustworthy source of information to help people make sound decisions when they are selling their items. To date we have sold millions of pounds worth of antiques and whisky (both casks and bottles) for our clients. 

We’re now applying this same logic to help people invest in casks of whisky.  Rather than providing sales pitches disguised as educational material, it’s our mission to become the ultimate source of open and honest cask investment guidance.

The information you will find in OUR GUIDE, CASK VIDEOS, BLOG and CALCULATOR is all designed to help you make a balanced decision.  We would rather you knew all the facts and didn’t buy a cask than buy one based on ‘fake news’.


The History Of The Glendronach Distillery

The Glendronach distillery is one of three Garioch distilleries and was established in 1826 when a group of local farmers formed a partnership under the leadership of James Allerdice. He was a charismatic leader who built up a strong reputation for the brand – in fact, Glendronach whisky was already been sold in London shortly after the brand’s foundation, however, in 1837 tragedy struck when fire decimated most of the distillery. More problems occurred a few years later in 1842 when James Allerdice went bankrupt.

Nevertheless, his efforts in promoting the brand put the Glendronach whisky in a strong position and Walter Scott saw its potential, coming forward to take over the distillery in 1852. He rebuilt to the condition that the Glendronach distillery is in today.

In 1920, Captain Charles Grant took over the brand. He was William Grant of Glenfiddich’s youngest son, and the distillery stayed in his family for four decades at which point it was sold on to Wm Teacher and Sons. It was at this point in 1967 that another pair of stills were added.

In 1976, the Glendronach distillery was taken over by Allied Distillers when they bought the Teacher’s estate. Two 12-year-old expressions were released in 1991, one of which was aged in an ex-sherry cask and one of which was aged in ex-Bourbon casks. This was an innovation at that time, however, no serious backing was forthcoming for the brand and this led to the distillery being mothballed for a few years between 1996 – 2002.

The Dalmore Distillery was taken over by Pernod Ricard who then solid on to The BenRiach Distilling Company in 2008. Since that time, a brand-new visitor centre has been created and the public is now welcomed to take part in tastings and tours. There has also been a brand new single malt range released. Lovers of sherried malts all around the world are starting to appreciate the Glendronach brand and a considerable following has been built up in Taiwan.

The water used by the distillery comes from the Dronac burn which is located within the grounds of the distillery. It is one of only a handful of Scottish distilleries to have floor maltings of its own and it has 2 wash stills and 2 spirit stills. The building itself is protected, being recognised as a category B listed building.
