Also known as "performance cookies," these cookies collect information about how you use a website, like which pages you visited and which links you clicked on. None of this information can be used to identify you. It is all aggregated and, therefore, anonymized. Their sole purpose is to improve website functions.

The advertisements you see displayed on this, and other, sites are generated by third parties. These services may use their own anonymous cookies to track how many times a particular ad has been displayed to you and may track your visits to other sites where their ads are displayed. Please note that advertisers can only track visits to sites which display their ads or other content. This tracking is anonymous, meaning that they do not identify who is viewing which ads.
Tracking in this manner allows advertisers to show you ads that are more likely to be interesting to you, and also limit the number of times you see the same ad across a wide number of sites. As an example of how advertisers operate, if you recently researched holidays, adverts for holiday operators may subsequently appear on our sites.
We do not have access to, or control over, these third party cookies; nor can we view the data held by these advertisers. Online advertisers provide ways for you to opt-out of your browsing being tracked. More information about the advertisers we use, and how to opt-out, is provided below.

Whisky can be an excellent way to diversify your portfolio; it's one of the few liquid assets offering tangible value (if it's well-aged). With the growing demand in the past decade and limited supply by a few masterclass distilleries, Whisky has gained a strong foothold in the alternative investment space.
However, participating in the value appreciation of these liquid assets has been impeded for the common investor by high entry barriers. With the most expensive cask of single malt whisky that has been ever sold reaching a private auction price of £16,000,000 pounds, large capital, as well as good industry connections, are required. To once again enable the Konvi community to overcome these challenges we are announcing our collaboration with our Whisky and Spirits partner Cask Trade.
Cask Trade, founded in 2018 by Simon Aron, is one of the leading cask spirit marketplaces in the world. They're a pioneering trading marketplace for individual casks of whisky, allowing them to generate historical solid returns for whisky portfolios. Through Cask Trade, passionate private clients can invest in balanced and carefully managed whisky portfolios. Cask Trade’s regularly rotating stock list offers a variety of whisky casks of different sizes, ages, and finishes from more than 90 distilleries across Scotland. They also stock bourbon, rum, Cognac, Irish, and new world whisky casks. Cask Trade manages the entire evolution of every cask, including samples, health checks, storage, and the whole bottling process. All portfolios are created based on the strategy, budget, and hold time which can vary from 3 to 21 years.
Through its long-term industry knowledge and expertise Cask Trades' investments have on average yielded an average historical return of 8-12% per annum. To illustrate what these investments looked like and what the exact returns were, we have collected a sample of their most recent investments:
Bunnahabhain 1991 Hogshead
Bought for £25,300 in 2019 and sold for £32,500 in 2020 (+28,5% over a 1 year period)
Speyside 2015 Hogshead
Bought for £1,556.85 in 2019 and sold for £2,600 in 2021 (+67% over a 2 year period)
Orkney Malt 2007 Hogshead
Bought for £5,000 in 2019 and sold for £8,500 in 2021 (+70% over a 2 year period)
The mission of Konvi is to democratise the access to high-end, rare alternative assets for the retail investor. Our partnership with Cask Trade will allow anyone to invest in stock of well-known whisky brands from a minimum share price of 250€.
Konvi will assist you every step of the way, once you decide to invest into a rare whisky casks on our app through Cask Trade. The portfolios will be liquidated and sold after the pre-defined holding period for the highest price so all users receive back their ownership and participate in the price development. Investors who want to liquidate earlier can sell their shares in the future through Konvi’s secondary market.
All whisky are safely stored and insured while invested users are informed about the selection, allocation as well as market outlook, during the time of the appreciation period. Cask Trade’s investments have historically appreciated 8-12% per year on average.Even though past performance does not guarantee future results, whisky is expected to grow even stronger in the future.
