How it Works

Here’s how Whiskeyvest helps diversify your portfolio with rare whiskey casks.

Here’s how Whiskeyvest helps diversify your portfolio with rare whiskey casks.

1

You reserve a cask

You can reserve a cask of one of Whiskeyvest’s two offerings: American Whiskey or Ultra-Rare Scotch. Once you’ve chosen your cask, it will be added to portfolio within 2-10 days.

2

Whiskeyvest procures a cask at a partner distiller

Whiskeyvest will reserve your cask at a partner distiller, which will navigate the complicated chemistry inside your cask—they’ll also store it while its contents age.

3

Be apart of the story of your cask

You’ll have the opportunity to visit a distiller to see your cask, as well as receive annual samples from the contents of your cask.

4

Sell the cask or have it bottled for yourself

Your whiskey cask will sit in bonded storage for 2-3 years, after which you can either sell it to a third party via Whiskeyvest or have it bottled and shipped to you.

How Whiskeyvest
Makes Money

To authenticate, store and insure your whiskey portfolio, Whiskeyvest charges an annual management fee between 2.25% to 2.85%. The exact fee is determined by the amount you invest. The higher your account balance, the lower the management fee.

2.25 - 2.80%

Fee Per Year

Users who invest a higher amount pay lower management fees.

0%

Commission

Whiskeyvest does not take a commission on the sale of your casks.

How You’re Taxed

Rare whiskey is considered a wasting asset in countries like the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Singapore, Germany, France, and Austria, and does not incur any capital gains tax.

In the United States, however, gains from buying and selling whiskey casks are subject to collectibles taxes. Collectibles held for over one year are subject to long-term capital gains taxes, which are capped at 28%. Collectibles held for less than one year are taxed as ordinary income (up to 37%).
