How to begin investing in Rare Whisky and Fine Wine?

Once you have spoken with an Account Executive at London Barrelhouse you will be informed of how to set up your obligation-free advisory account.

Speak with a Portfolio Manager

Once your account has been established, you will be sent a welcome letter with details of your account number from your dedicated portfolio manager.  You will then liaise together to build a portfolio in line with our key investment parameters.  This will either be exclusively wine, whisky or a combination of the two.

Tailored Investment Proposal

After extensive consultation with your portfolio manager, you will jointly compile an investment proposal based around your permitted budget and preferences. Our portfolios are based on up-to-the-minute data that is revised on a quarterly basis and re-balanced and reviewed for best performance.

Investment Proposal Recieved 

Once you are in receipt of your agreed proposal, normally via email or hardcopy, you will have in your possession a bespoke proposal explaining in detail each wine and whisky, its vintage, its current performance on the secondary market and why it has been included. At this stage, you are welcome to add or remove any expression.

Agreement & Payment

Once you and your portfolio manager have agreed a date for which funds are to be settled you will be sent an invoice for the agreed portfolio value.

Asset Allocation

Once funds have been received, our team will immediately start the process of allocating all purchased products into your account with London Barrelhouse.

Certificates of Ownership

After your assets are properly segregated into your account, you will be sent out all the relevant paperwork, including your certificates of ownership.

Advisory Service & Management Fee

London Barrelhouse charges a one-off management fee of 10%. The fee covers the whole process of your relationship with us. It covers the sourcing, the storage, insurance and provenance of everything you buy and the assignment of your own dedicated portfolio manager. Also covered is your exit – there is no extra charge made upon exit. In addition, when trading occurs during the life cycle of your portfolio i.e., selling to reinvest or remit back to you, AGAIN, no extra charge is made. Your portfolio’s authenticity is guaranteed of quality and condition by our use of official European distributors, direct from the source or other bonded warehouses to our temperature-controlled, award-winning warehouse facility in temperature-controlled trucks. If any product arrives in sub-standard condition then it will not pass through our checking in process, and through our memberships of Liv-Ex and Crown Wine Cellars, we guarantee that if the product cannot be replaced then the market value is paid directly to you for the said purchase.
