Sell your Cask of Whisky with Mark Littler

How to sell a cask of whisky

If you would like to sell a cask of whisky or would like your cask of whisky valued then we are here to help.  Not only will we make the process easy and jargon-free, we are confident we will get you the best deal.

Unlike other whisky brokers, we are not connected to any particular distiller or bottler so we are able to get bids from a much wider network.

For instance, in early 2017 we sold three 21 year old casks of Springbank.  The best offer we received was 250% more than our client had been offered from the distillery or other brokers the had approached.

What is my cask worth?

In order to provide you with an accurate valuation please provide as much of the below information as you can. There is more information about each section below the form.

Cask Whisky Valuation Form

What details do I need to send you about my cask to get a valuation?

There are lots of different factors that can affect the value of your cask.  You can read more about them here.

The essential information we need is:

  • Distillery
  • Year of production
  • Cask type
  • Age
  • Original litres of alcohol when cask was filled

All of this information can be provided by the distiller and is a very common, straightforward process.  You simply need to call the distillery and ask for a regauge (read more about what a regauge is here)

Should I look for more than one offer?

It sounds obvious.  You may well do the same when you are selling your car or house, but people seldom seek an independent valuation when they are selling their casks of whisky.

We recommend that you get a second opinion regarding the value of your cask to weigh up any offers that we provide.  We are confident our offers will beat any offer that you will receive from other brokers or the distillery. 

If you get a better offer than the one we provide, all the better for you.  We want you to get the best deal possible, not just the best deal we can get you.

Distilleries will often be able to provide you with an offer/valuation for your cask.  Although you own the cask, they often feel they have the right to buy it back from you.  There is no obligation to sell the cask back to the distillery and they will rarely advise you seek a second valuation.

What happens if I want to accept your offer?

We act as your agent through the process and there is a formal agency agreement/contract that we will post out to you.  This outlines all of our legal obligations as your agent

Once we have received the contract we then invoice the buyer and await payment.

After all the funds have cleared you then transfer ownership of the cask to the buyer and we release the funds to you minus our fee.

If you would like to read reviews from our customers you can search Google for Mark Littler and see several dozen independent, 5 star reviews from happy clients.

We can also provide references upon request.

What do you charge for selling your cask of whisky?

Our fee is a flat 10% with no hidden fees or VAT.

Am I tied into a contract for a certain period of time?

No.  Unlike other brokers we work on a successful offer only basis.  This means that we secure offers from clients who are ready to move forward with the sale of the cask immediately.

Other brokers may take your cask on consignment and then advertise the cask for sale for a set period, say 6 months.  They would ask for complete exclusivity even though they may not even be able to find you a buyer.
