Why Invest In A Whisky Cask With Mark Littler?

Our experience stems from helping hundreds of people EXIT their cask investments. We know what has worked for cask owners in the past, and use that information to shape the advice and casks that we offer to current investors.

We have sold millions of pounds of casks for our customers, helping them see returns from a few thousand pounds, to over £300,000 from initial investments of as little as £1,500.

We also understand that the market has changed and we will always provide clear and comprehensive information so that you can make an informed decision. Our ethos focuses on three simple principles:


Our experience selling hundreds of casks for clients exiting their cask investments means we are uniquely placed to help you enter your investment.

We also want you to have realistic expectations of potential and the time needed to invest in casks; we provide the information necessary for you to make an informed decision.


Our agreement with an exclusive bonded warehouse means we can make your cask ownership a unique, hands on experience throughout the lifetime of your cask.

Owning a cask via a delivery order gives you the option to draw samples and experience how your whisky is maturing. You can also visit your casks should you wish to.


We are open about what is involved in cask ownership and we would rather you knew all the facts and didn’t buy a cask than buy one based on misleading information. Please download our cask buying PDF and explore our whisky cask guides page to learn more. 

Our open and honest approach is why we have over 600 five star reviews online.

Education Not Sales

At Mark Littler Ltd we sell whisky casks, but we are not sales people. Our aim when we started out with casks was to educate people about casks as an investment and that is the ethos we still work with.

As well as our extensive online library of guides, articles and videos when you choose to buy a cask with us you will have the opportunity to book in for 30 minute Q & A session with us where we will answer all your questions about casks and whisky cask investment. This is not a sales call, just a chance for you to ask questions and get answers. Please note that due to exceedingly high demand we do have a waiting list for both purchasing casks and free consultation calls. If you need answers faster then please get in touch regarding paid consultations.
