How Mark Littler Can Help You

Let’s assume you have read our cask guide and watched all of our cask investment videos.  If not, follow the links and put yourself in an informed position before you buy.

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 Glen Grant Distillery

Originally established in 1840 by two of the most famous names in the whisky industry, the brothers James and John Grant, the Glen Grant Distillery has a long-established pedigree. It is perhaps one of the best-known brands of whisky on sale today and is known around the world for its high-quality character.

James and John Grant were one-time smugglers and illegal distillers who decided that they would take out a license to produce whisky in 1840. As the River Spey and the port of Garmouth were close by and there was plenty of barley growing in the nearby plains it seemed to be an ideal location for a whisky distillery. It was thanks to the Grant brothers that the railway was built between Elgin and Lossiemouth, and also that the route was extended to Rothes (something which they paid for themselves in 1858).

The original founders of the distillery had both passed away by 1872 and the operation passed into the hands of James The Major Grant who had always been interested in the distillery and who took over the reins successfully following his uncle’s death.

The Young James Grant was legendary as a traveller, socialiser and innovator, and he loved new ideas. He pioneered electric lighting in the Glen Grant distillery as well as introducing purifiers and tall narrow stills which led to the clear colour and fresh malt flavour which characterises the Glen Grant brand today.

When the last Glengrant died in 1931, he was survived by his 3 daughters and a grandson, Douglas MacKessack who was to inherit the distillery which had, by this time, earned a renowned reputation around the globe. The Glen Grant Distillery and the Glenlivet distillery amalgamated in 1972 with the Longmorn Distillery and Hill, Thomas & Co to become The Glenlivet Distillers Ltd. However, the family maintained its interest in the distillers with the other two shareholders being Suntory and Courage Ltd.

Glen Grant was then acquired by Campari in 2006 when Pernod Ricard acquired Allied Domecq. Today, Glen Grant remains one of the world’s most popular single malts and it is still operated by Dennis Malcolm, a master distiller who was actually born in 1946 at the distillery and began working for the operation back in 1961.
