Market Leading Whisky Cask Broker
With strong links and established relationships in the UK, US and the Far East, VCL Vintners are perfectly placed to source, bottle and distribute the world’s rarest whiskies and wines. Where possible we build exclusive relationships with suppliers, making our selection of wines and whiskies unique and therefore offering our clients a service that distinguishes us from many other merchants and brokers.
VCL Vintners have an in-depth knowledge of the whisky and wine trade. Where in the past only négociants, distillers and blenders have been able to benefit financially from investment grade alcoholic products, we are able to offer excellent profit potential to our private investors by identifying opportunities most suited to their requirements.
VCL Vintners, through a variety of different sources, can provide clients with opportunities to purchase some of the rarest and most sought-after whiskies on the planet. According to Knight Frank Luxury Index, over the past decade the return on rare whiskies has been roughly 54% per year, with a rise between 2009 to 2019 of 540%.
Having being qualified by the ‘Wines and Spirits Education Trust’, our brokers are able to dispense advice on when to buy and sell, and to keep clients informed of wines and whiskies that represent excellent value with strong profit potential. As members of the ‘London International Vintners Exchange’ and with decades of combined experience we are able to offer a personalised service, with regular valuations and recommendations.
Whilst our business model remains a business to business international merchant, we do provide a retail purchasing service. Retail clients are advised to purchase stock online through our website or to speak to a senior advisor for a more in-depth analysis of the market. This service can be best described in three simple words– buy, hold and sell.
Alongside managing your investment portfolio, VCL Vintners provide a wide range of exit strategies including wholesalers, whisky and wine collectors, funds and auction houses.
