On the World Whisky Index you have the possibility to ship bottles. However, some bottles are so special that we want to preserve them. Whisky gems like the Springbank 1919 and Black Bowmore make this platform unique, which benefits you as a trader/investor. Therefore some bottles are secured. The buyer agrees that he/she neither factually nor legally can and will dispose the bottle (s) of whisky (including but not limited to: selling, transferring, encumbering, moving and consuming), subject to the authority to trade the bottle (s) of whisky via the World Whisky Index.


Which bottles are involved?

Bottles that are: 

  • older than 30 years, and/or
  • distilled before 1980.


If you have secured bottles in your portfolio, you get a 15% discount on the management fee of your entire portfolio and the secured bottles are added to the Rare whisky index or Ultra rare whisky index


I want this removed. Is that possible?

No.
