Whisky Cask Fund

Unique ded­i­cat­ed invest­ment vehi­cle focus­ing on Pre­mi­um, Invest­ment Grade, Whisky cask ownership

The Whisky Cask Invest­ments is a nov­el invest­ment vehi­cle that pro­vides investors with the oppor­tu­ni­ty to par­tic­i­pate in the grow­ing mar­ket for fine Scotch whisky. NeoMon­do Cap­i­tal seeks to pro­vide Investors entry to a rare, pre­vi­ous­ly dif­fi­cult to access asset class, man­aged by a team of pro­fes­sion­als, pro­mot­ing diver­si­fi­ca­tion to investors’ own portfolios.

Pre­mi­um Scotch Whisky is a col­lec­table asset with val­ue appre­ci­a­tion dri­ven by rar­i­ty and grow­ing glob­al interest.

 

In the last 10 years, the annu­al exports of Scotch whisky climbed from £4Bn to £6.2Bn with ever­grow­ing demand com­ing, espe­cial­ly, from Far East, US and South America.

As mar­kets devel­op, clients become more sophis­ti­cat­ed and demand more old­er and rar­er expres­sions of sin­gle malt. Good growth in this seg­ment will put increased pres­sure on the, already lim­it­ed, more mature aged stock, thus increas­ing prices.

 

NeoMon­do Cap­i­tal, through their invest­ment vehi­cle, offer a con­ve­nient and diver­si­fied way to invest in whisky casks. This vehi­cle pools invest­ments and man­ages the cask selec­tion, stor­age, and mat­u­ra­tion process on behalf of investors.

PROJECT OVERVIEW

Scotch Whisky has an unri­valled her­itage dat­ing all the way back to 1494. In 1823 the Excise Act was passed which sanc­tioned the dis­till­ing whisky in return for a license fee. Illic­it stills died out almost com­plete­ly over the next decade and ever since the amount of dis­til­leries has stayed on steady count. There is cur­rent­ly 143 dis­til­leries in Scotland.

 

Its clear that in the last 10 years, Scotch whisky sales have grown expo­nen­tial­ly. This has led to the price of bot­tles and casks at all lev­els of the mar­ket increas­ing in val­ue — the laws of sup­ply and demand are evi­dent­ly at work.

It is believed that future growth dynam­ics in the Scotch and fine whisky indus­try includ­ing increased import demand from Asian economies as well as reduc­tions in import tar­iffs from the USA will fur­ther dri­ve the mar­ket opportunity.

 

Accord­ing to the UK Gov­ern­ment and Scotch Whisky Asso­ci­a­tion, Scotch whisky exports to India alone could grow from £146m (2021) to £1bn over the next five years.

 

The issuers objec­tive is to cap­ture this increas­ing demand, lim­it­ed sup­ply and grow­ing val­ue for fine sin­gle malt whisky (pre­dom­i­nant­ly Scotch whisky) through the direct hold­ing of whisky casks dur­ing the hold­ing term, with an expect­ed 10%+ p.a. appre­ci­a­tion on each cask when held to exit.

The pro­ceeds from the issuance of the notes will be deployed into a diver­si­fied port­fo­lio of whisky casks, bal­anced across vin­tages, matu­ri­ty, geo­graph­i­cal prove­nance, dis­tillers and rarity.

Once NeoMon­do Cap­tial’s hold­ing peri­od expec­ta­tion has been reached, the com­pa­ny will work with their part­ners to line up exit options for the casks (bot­tlers, oth­er whole­sale buy­ers, indi­vid­ual investors etc.) to max­i­mize returns.

 

Please see the pre­sen­ta­tion to see how investor cash flow is antic­i­pat­ed (sub­ject to under­ly­ing mar­ket conditions).
