‘It feels like a confident investment’
John and Patricia Purcell aren’t your typical investors. They haven’t had a previous life flipping property or trading foreign currency, and until recently, they hadn’t done much investing at all.
All of that began to change when John happened to see an ad for Whiskey & Wealth Club online. He was immediately intrigued, and began to read up on whiskey. He saw that investing in cask whiskey was becoming an increasingly popular opportunity, with significant recent growth in the industry, and began to consider cask investment more seriously.
The next step was to join us on one of our monthly distillery tours. We invite all current and prospective clients to take part for a few reasons. We think it’s important to be transparent in every aspect of our business, and giving clients the opportunity to get to know us and our distillery partners is one of the key ways we demonstrate that. We also love sharing our passion for whiskey and introducing our clients to the distilleries and leading them through the landscapes that shaped them truly never gets old.
John describes the tour as ‘amazing.’ He and Patricia were able to meet with the owners and ask any questions they had, and they felt that that ‘brought a lot of validity to the tour.’ After their experience at the distillery, they knew they had gotten all of the information they needed and made their decision to invest.
John got in touch with co-founder and CEO Scott Sciberras, and it was, in John’s words, ‘a slam dunk from there.’ ‘And being whiskey lovers ourselves,’ Patricia adds, ‘we figured it was a good investment.’
