Opening up the Scotch whisky investment market
After successfully launching with Irish whiskey last year, we are pleased to announce that we have entered the Scotch whisky market. Partnering with the historic Bladnoch Distillery, we will be offering investors the opportunity to diversify their portfolios, investing in one of the most sought-after prospects.
As part of this partnership, we will be purchasing casks of a new spirit, produced exclusively for our members, in the classic Lowland style. This unique spirit will be distilled under the watchful eye of master distiller, Dr Nick Savage, previously of Diageo, William Grants and The Macallan. The new make spirit will be filled into 200 litre ex-Bourbon casks and will be stored in a bonded warehouse onsite at the Bladnoch estate while the whisky matures.
Why the Scottish market?
Our decision to enter the Scottish market has come at a very exciting time for ‘the water of life.’ In 2018, the export value of Scotch whisky grew by 7.8% to a record £4.70 billion and in the first half of 2019 the export valuation has risen 7.5% to £1.35 billion. Scotch accounted for 70% of all Scottish food and drink exports, and 21% of all UK food and drink exports. Whisky has even featured in the Knight Frank Luxury Investment Index (KFLII) for the first time, reflecting its strength and the opportunities it yields for investors.
We’re thrilled to be entering the Scotch market after our successful launch with cask Irish whiskey less than a year ago. Bladnoch is the perfect distillery partner for our Scotch launch, the distillery estate is world renowned which will add to the value of the casks as they mature. This is a really exciting time for the whisky market and the reception we’ve had from people wanting to be a part of this industry has been phenomenal.
Scottish whisky is steeped in history and is one of the most well-established markets globally. Every second, 41 bottles of Scotch are shipped from Scotland to 175 markets around the world.

“This new spirit we are creating for Whisky & Wealth Club reflects the craftsmanship of my team and our exceptional dedication to creating superb Lowland Single Malt whisky. We are delighted to help Whisky & Wealth Club give their clients a chance to invest in the future of Scotch whisky.”
The whisky maturing process has been generating returns for an exclusive community for hundreds of years. We are proud to be expanding the opportunities we offer to private investors to be able to purchase premium Scotch whisky at wholesale rates.
