Thanks George for your help and assistance with getting me onboard. I do hope that you enjoyed our lighthearted conversations as much as I did. Thanks again for your patience and hope fully if performance is as good as indicated in the next 6 months then I may invest in some more casks. Thanks again Kev

Our experience with Ben was good. Everything was explained clearly to us and we had an opportunity to ask questions. We didn't feel under any pressure in our conversations and would feel comfortable recommending VCL to our family and friends.

I can honestly say that i am very happy to recommend VCL and especially Shane.. Whiskey investment is a new venture for us, so after extensive research into it and also looking into VCL we took the plunge. Shane was very helpful and patient, after several phone calls and lots of questions we made our investment, it was so simple... We are looking forward to growing our portfolio with VCL... Thank you !

Dealing with VCL Vintners was an absolute pleasure from start til finish, although there is no noticeable finish as this is very much a long term partnership which can easily stretch into decades+. I had been wanting to move some of my saving in to whisky casks for some time, but I was wary to commit as I didn’t really know much about it. After speaking to Max my concerns were put aside and I became not only a willing investor but an excited investor. Max was professional, and knowledgeable but above all he was patient with me explaining every aspect of the process in an easy to understand manner. I look forward to being in business with VCL Vintners and Max for the future years to come, hopefully adding to my portfolio along the way.

This has been my first investment so I was a bit wary. I had no need to be. I spoke with Shane and my experience was extremely positive. Shane was patient, he answered all my questions. He was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. He explained everything in an informative way, this give me the confidence to make my first investment in whisky. The entire process was straightforward and was enjoyable. Shane was transparent throughout the process and a pleasure to work with. Overall, I can say that this was an exciting experience and I would not hesitate to recommend VCL VINTNERS. Thank you Shane for excellent customer care and supporting me through my first investment. I will hopefully invest further in the further.

This past year we have managed to scrimp and save with an interest to invest that money for the future. Stocks and shares were very daunting for a simple tradesman as myself. After searching good investments, whiskey investment came up, which intrigued me, even though I'm not a whiskey drinker, I appreciate the market for fine scotch. After a look at a few whiskey investment companies, VCL really seemed to stand out to us, so we got in touch, the next day I had a phone call from a lovely guy called George, he was very friendly, he even pointed out as a tradesman he understood that I have grafted for that money, he was in no way, shape or form pushy or sales like, he talked me through the whole process and left me to have a think about it, he did not chase us for a sale, our conversations were as if an old friend was calling. George had even offered to meet up in person to discuss the process further, as we are a few miles away, we opted for a zoom meeting one evening, which again put us at further ease. The whole decision was left completely in our hands, again with no pushy sales tactics. Looking at the companies track record, I think that says alot. We decided to invest in some casks, received our welcome pack, with samples very promptly and we are now looking very much forward to building our portfolio and working with George and the team.

With immense patience and courtesy, George Roots explained the A-Z of whisky investing. I had previously dealt with another whisky firm where it was all high pressure sales. Not so with George. He initially provided a very attractive portfolio and when I intimated aI might raise my investment, he sought out a wonderful cask which exceeded my expectations. Becoming involved with VCL was a most enjoyable experience. Thank you, George,
