We have created our cask calculator to help you understand the costs involved in bottling a cask of whisky.

From brokering millions of pounds worth of cask sales for our customers looking to sell their casks we have found that selling in bond is the most profitable way of selling a cask.

Advice You Can Trust

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

It was our intention to stay as an advisory service only to those looking to sell.  Buy in the last 18 months we have seen such as wave of hyperbole and, well, frankly lies, with regards to cask investment we decided we had to take a stand.

So we are applying the same guiding principles that have earned us over 300 five star reviews to help people buy a cask.

Just over 10 years ago I visited the Bruichladdich distillery and bought a newly filled fresh bourbon barrel. Having allowed it to mature I needed to decide what to do with it. Bruichladdich made an unattractive offer to buy it back.I became aware of Mark Littler, from a Google search. I contacted him based on the many positive reviews. After talking to him and learning of his experience of selling casks I commissioned him to sell my cask.Dealing with Mark has been a pleasure, he has guided me through the process and I have received over 3 times the offer from Bruichladdich.I have found Mark to be realistic and helpful and I recommend his services.
